Dearest all, Om Sri Sairam!

Holy Easter Sunday – the Aradhana / Celebration of Resurrection.

We celebrate this Easter Sunday when both the Father and Son have sacrificed themselves in the Yajna and resurrected themselves in the hearts of all beings, to express themselves for us, through us, and to us. Purusha Suktam beautifully extolls this entire process of how the Son of God has offered Himself for: “Thy will be done”.

Om ya̱jñeśva̍rāya̍ vi̱dmahe̍ | We know (vidmahe) this supreme being of sacrifice (yajñeśvara)
Yeśunā̱thāya̍ dhīma̍hi | We meditate (dhīmahi) upon the Yeśu, the being in all (Yeśunāthāya)
tanno̍ tyāgī praco̱dayā̎t |
May we expand (pracodayāt) through spirit of sacrifice by ‘cutting accorss the ego’ (tyāgī = renouncer)

Om Sā̱yīśva̍rāya̍ vi̱dmahe̍ | We know (vidmahe) this supreme being, Same-As-I (SAI)
satya de̱vāya̍ dhīma̍hi | We meditate (dhīmahi) upon the supreme truth (satya), So-Am-I (SAI)
tanna̍s sarvah praco̱dayā̎t |
May we expand (pracodayāt) through Love All Serve All (sarvah = everything)
