The Ancient Power of Sanskrit Mantra and Ceremony
Namaste, Divine Brothers and Sisters,

The situation in the Gulf is bad and will get worse before it gets better.  We have mantra power at our disposal. Thus, responding to requests from many of you for a pro-active role in "cleaning things up."  I have devised this stack to help.
As comedian Arsenio Hall used to say a couple of decades ago, "Let's get busy!"

As always, I pray for you at every puja and workshop. I earnestly supplicate for the best and highest for each and all of you. .

With Gratitude, In Love And Service,
Namadeva Acharya

Mantra Stack To Relieve The Pain, Suffering And Damage For Many Species In The Gulf Of Mexico
A few newsletters ago, I told of the experience I had with chanting for the Devas of several states. The results were astonishing to me. Since I wrote that, I have had other experiences with the Deva Kingdom.  I had a healing from a large plot of flowers at a castle outside of London just by saluting the Devas with the Vigna Nashanaya Mantra.  I recently saluted the Devas for a large patch of yellow flowers outside a private home, and the positive energy response nearly knocked me over.
The six-mantra Ganesha stack below should take no more than 12-15 minutes. Doing each a half or whole mala. Ganesha is the Lord of Species, so we are asking for his Divine aid for all the animals and humans harmed by this horrific mess in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Feel free to give this stack to anyone who would use it. Together we CAN make a difference, perhaps a dramatic one.

The works of Thomas Ashley-Farrand (Namadeva Acharya) give unprecedented, detailed instruction in how to empower yourself using the techniques of the ancient sages and rishis.  He and Satyabhama have been given the mission by their Gurus Sadguru Sant Keshavadas and Guru Rama Mata to bring these teachings to everyone. 

To that end, he has written and recorded a number of works, and he travels to North America and the UK to teach workshops.  Bi-annually, we lead a Pilgrimage Tour of India's Holy Places, visiting with the Shankaracharayas at Kanchi Math, Guru Mata at Vishwa Shanti Ashram, and doing fire ceremonies in the Himalayas, among the highlights of the trip.
We have founded a religious organization, Sanatana Dharma Satsang, which has opened a Gayatri Temple in Beaverton, Oregon.   Plans are in the works to found temples with residential communities in Oregon, New Mexico, and other locations.  The link to it is in the right column.
These works are offered in a spirit of service.  We sincerely hope that they will further you on your path.
Prem & Shanti,
Satyabhama (Margalo Ashley-Farrand)
