New Moon Puja

Event: New Moon Puja (Tilem)

On the 15th day after the full moon the moon becomes invisible in the sky- this is the dark night of the moon. When there is new moon the sun is on the bottom of the planet and you sit on top of it, so straight away you get connected with the Sakti power or kundalini through the base chakra. At new moon the kundalini is able to rise more quickly.

  • Time: 7:30 till finish
  • Dress Code: White Ashram Attire
  • Ashram sarong rental available at the Ashram co op shop

Full Moon Puja

Purnama (Full Moon)

Ceremony on full moon is very important because the Sakti, Mother energy of the Universe, is rising and moving. You can more easily receive the energy and potentially your kundalini may rise more quickly.

Here the moon is reflecting the sun’s energy 100%. The moon is taking the energy from the sun and reflecting it down to the earth to move the energy for the people. This is like the father who supplies the mother with the money to buy food for the children (father sun, mother moon).

  • Event: Full Moon Puja
  • Time: 7:30pm till finish
  • Dress Code: White Ashram Attire
  • Ashram sarong rental available at the Ashram co op shop down stairs.

Kajeng Kliwon Puja

Kajeng Kliwon

Kajeng Kliwon takes place every third kliwon (15 days). The energy is high so we do Puja (ceremony) on these days. Mother/Sakti energy at kajeng kliwon connects the sun, moon, earth, planets and stars so we receive the Sakti energy of the Universe. This energy makes you very sharp.
