Region 4 - Laksharchana in Leicester

The Lord’s Name is like a boat for a man crossing the ocean of life. It is supremely important in the Kali Age. It has been declared that there is nothing greater than chanting the Lord’s Name in the Kali Age.

By no other spiritual or religious practices can peace be attained in this age. The Divine Name can turn poison into nectar. It can revive a lifeless thing. It is surcharged with infinite power.

LAKSHARCHANA is the name and practice of repeating in a group, the name of the Lord in the form of a Mantra. ARCHANA means “chanting and glorifying the Divine name”. LAK means 100,000 times.

Sathya Sai Centre of Narborough conducted its annual Laksharchan, for World Peace on 9th August 2015 at the East West Community project. This was led by Mr.Vadgama and two youth. Mr Vadgama is an ardent devotee of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and has been an inspiration to devotees with his dedication and devotion. Although an octogenarian, and in poor health he travelled from London to Leicester to lead this sacred task, and all the devotees were grateful for his presence.

By chanting the Lord’s name desires can be reduced, while legitimate wishes get fulfilled. ~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba ~

Devotees from different background –English, Polish, Lithuanian, Gujarati and South Indians came from Leicester, Loughborough, Birmingham Rotherham and India to attend this sacred event. For many of them, this was their first time. The chanting of the 9 malas was interspered with soul stiring bhajans and amazing awe inspiring experiences shared by Mr. Vadgama!

At the end of the morning, the devotees had mahaprasadam and went home very uplifted with the divine vibrations and packets of vibhuti.
