Sanghik Upasana (Collective Worship)
“When we pray collectively, the positive and divine vibrations produced by all the prayers come together and strengthens our prayers making it more powerful and effective. The radiance and vibrations generated during the collective prayers are beneficial to our country and hence also to ourselves. Collective prayers do not result in the division of our punya (merits); instead, they increase, in geometrical progression,” Sadguru Shree Aniruddha elucidated the significance of collective prayers (Sanghik Upasana) in his discourse.
Benefits of Sanghik Upasana:-
- Sanghik Upasana enhances positive energy.
- Even though India has seen many great personalities its society has remained mediocre due to lack of unity. This feeling of belongingness or unity can be inculcated only through collective prayers.
- The ego that may arise out of doing social work generally doesn’t occur when it is done by people coming together and is based on devotion.
- Not only do collective prayers confer mental peace, but they also free us from the worldly problems, empower our mind, making us travellers on the path of God.
- Collective prayers develop and imbibe the sentiment of unity and equality among everyone.
- Develops mental strength, boosts confidence and help live fearlessly. Thus, each person and consequently the community and the country develop spiritually and emotionally.
