Schedule of Regular Activities at the Shivalaya

Family activities
"Family that prays together stays together." We invite you to take part as a family in the Shiv Puja every Monday evening and in the Hanuman Chalisa Satsang every first Saturday of the month at Chinmaya Shivalaya.

Shiv Puja:
Every Monday Evening 7:30 to 9:00pm
If you would like to offer Shiv Puja on any of the Mondays, to celebrate your special occasion like birthdays, anniversaries or simply for your own sadhana, please call Shivalaya at 905-913-2377 or Neena Dev at 416-445-3324

Hanuman Chalisa:
Every first Saturday of the month 4:00 to 6:00pm
Join us in singing and chanting the praises of Hanumanji.
Hanuman Chalisa is a very well known prayerful glorification of Sri Hanumanji. It is called Chalisa because it has forty verses in Chaupai form. This stuti has been written by Goswami Tulsidas of Sri Ramcharitmanasa fame. Invoking the grace of Hanumanji paves the way for being blessed by strength, loving and inspired service, fearlessness, devotion, and finally the darshan of God and the blessing of Self-Knowledge.
If you would like to sponsor this event please call Shivalaya at 905-913-2377 or Neena Dev at 416-445-3324
