THE Hindu calendar brings with it celebrations of great splendor and the month of March sees Hindu devotees perform penances as well as meditation, in an effort to faster attain “the highest good” all in the name of Lord Shiva.

As a forerunner to Maha Shivarathri the Sri Sanathan Mundal has initiated the 12th annual Shivarathri Walk.

The devotees of the Mundal will be undertaking their walk on 28 February this year.
This sacred act sees devotees chanting mantras along the way to praise Lord Shiva.

Lord Shiva’s devotees engage in this walk annually with buses departing from the Mundal at 5am.
Devotees make their way to Blythedale Beach for an early morning ritual with the collection of “ganga jal” followed by a chariot procession that sees them returning to the Mundal.

Devotees will be given the opportunity to pull the chariot at different stages of the procession.

The Mundal invites all Hindus from KwaDukuza and surrounding areas to join this spiritual campaign to promote peace and harmony.

All sister organisations are welcome to join in. Devotees will be treated to a sumptuous meal on conclusion of the proceedings.

For more information contact the Mundals religious committee chairperson Mrs Beena Singh on 083 966 4365 or Mr Rabi Hanuman on 083 465 3303.
