With the blessings of Sri Sri Swamiji, Nama Sankirtan took of in a grand manner in Germany on 27th September this year.

Germany has a huge population of Sri Lankan Tamils spread across various cities. They are very simple people deeply devoted and have established community Hindu temples wherever possible. They are very cordial with the local population as well as expat Indians.

On 27th September, being the auspicious day of Saraswati Pooja during the Navaratri time, the first GOD Satsang was inaugurated in Germany with tremendous support from the devotees there.

Sri Jayaveera Anjaneyar Temple at a town called Castrop-Rauxel near Dortmund was chosen as the first kendra. Sri Sri Swamiji, in one of his discourses, has mentioned that Sri Anjaneya was the ever devotee who went overseas and spread the Rama Nama. It was indeed apt that the first Nama activity in Germany happened in Lord Anjaneya’s own place! In So it was very apt that the first Nama activity happened in Europe in his temple.

Around 85 devotees had assembled in the temple for the yearly Laksharchanai programme. As part of the agenda, Thanjavur Vijay from GOD India discoursed on the glory of Hinduism and importance of chanting of Divine Names in this age of Kali. The gathered devotees listened to the lecture in rapt attention and joined enthusiastically in the mass chanting of Hare Rama Mahamantra. Sri Swamiji’s photo and Mahamantra CD’s were given to Mr. Rueben (in-charge of the temple and who helped in organizing this event) and the temple priests. Mahamantra stickers were distributed to all devotees.

The organizers promised that Mahamantra will be chanted at this temple every Sunday morning during the weekly bhajan and the CD with Mahamantra kirtan in the divine voice of Sri Sri Swamiji shall be played daily.

Sri Kanaka Durga Ambal Alayam at Schwerte town was the second center. Sri Jeyanthinatha Sarma, the in-charge of this temple had known Sri Sri Swamiji through the the articles in Sakthi Vikatan magazine and was very eager to welcome us. Thanjavur Vijay from GOD India participated in the evening Navaratri pooja and gave a short speech on the glory of Nama Sankeerthan.
