Devotion plays a significant role in developing an integrated personality which is key for the spiritual progress in a seeker’s life. At Tattvatirtha, expressing devotion to the Lord is given great importance. The Ashram provides seekers a platform to express their devotion, love and reverence to the Lord. Seekers take advantage of every festive occasion to express their devotion, and the entire community comes together and coordinates these activities for celebration of the festivals. The traditional Vedic rituals are followed in chanting and puja during the festivals, Guru Padapuja, and Pragatyosava celebrations. The rituals are elaborate, with षोडशोपचार ṣoḍaśopacāra puja, including Abhiṣekam, Vedic chanting, bhajans, dhuns and other elements. There is perfection in the Vedic rituals, and is filled with love and reverence for the Lord at every step of the puja. Pujya Swamiji himself offers the puja, invoking devotion in every seeker, which fills the whole atmosphere with love and joy. During Navaratri festival, a puja of Goddess Saraswati is performed and books are brought by students and venerated, highlighting the importance of knowledge in the lives of Vedānta students.

Bhajans and dhuns also form another important part of expression of devotion. Every Sunday evening a Satsanga–Kirtan is held at the Ashram, and the seekers gather to sing the bhajans and dhuns of the Lord. Pujya Swamiji himself sings beautiful bhajans with great devotion invoking love for Narayana in every seeker’s heart. It is no wonder that all devotees eagerly wait for Pujya Swamiji’s bhajans on Sunday Satsanga-Kirtan.

Discourses on devotional texts are another way Tattvatirtha is involved in invoking devotion in the seekers. Devotion purifies the mind and creates ground for knowledge, and so generally many of the devotional texts like Bhāgavata and Rāmāyaṇa are taught by Pujya Swamiji during the year. On special occasions, discourses by other Mahatmas are also held in the Ashram. Special Pravacanas on Rāsapaṃcādhyāyī by Dr. ShyamSundar Parasharji and Vālmīki RāmāyaṇaPradhāna `SrīRāmakathā by Swami Sri Govinda deva Girijiwere arranged in celebration of Pujya Swamiji’s Shatabhishekam during the year 2019-2020. All are cordially invited to attend all festivals and associated celebrations.
