Other activitiesEvening Ganga Aarti: Just as the sun’s rising is manifest by prayers. Each evening as the sun’s last rays reflect off the endless waters of mother Ganga, we congregate for the Ganga Aarti. This divine light ritual is filled with devotional prayers, songs, rituals and a palpable sense of the holiness of mother Ganga. The Aarti, an ornate oil lamp, lined with dozens of inferno burning in pure ghee- is offered to god. We give gratitude for the blessings bestowed upon us that day, as well as representatively offering light back to Ganga Aarti is a time when we break free from the normal strain & stresses of every- day life, & gather together in joy, peace and reverence. .
