Thank you for remaining an uber awesome Hindu.

Please click on the DOWNLOAD above to view the following article and kindly read and learn more about this subject matter.

The reason for compiling this article is to assist during the current Covid virus outbreak. I would like to humbly offer some advice to curb the spread of this virus while performing one’s pujas.

Firstly, until the virus has eased, consider inviting very few people to be present for the actual prayer — perhaps invite only the closest family members/friends to be present.

To further curb the spread of this virus and limit the number of people in attendance, consider eliminating the presence of a bhajan group. One option would be to engage a bhajan group virtually. I myself, have been conducting more and more prayers virtually, so I know that some bhajan groups are also trending in this direction.

Please note that it is not my intent to upset bhajan groups here, it is merely a suggestion to limit person to person interaction since this virus is still so highly contagious. However, if you are comfortable having a singing group present, then that is entirely up to you.

Since many prayers, funerals etc. are being limited here in South Africa, I’ve decided to compile a list to assist during a prayer. This list will include:

(a) suggested Vedic verses to read.

(b) prayers and mantras to chant.

(c) background music/videos/ to play on one’s cell phone or laptop.

Let’s all work together during this pandemic to curb the spread of this virus and keep us all alive and healthy.
