Sri Ramakrishna used to advise devotees to go to a secluded and sacred place and perform such japa to derive lasting benefit. This purifies the mind, strengthens it, and prepares it to face the realities of life.
Japa Yajna is the ‘sacrifice of the silent repetition of the holy name.’ Participating in the Japa Yajna is an opportunity for devotees who have received initiation from the gurus of the Ramakrishna Order, to perform japa (repetition of God’s name) continually for half a day.
Japa Yajna is conducted every last Saturday of the English month. Prior registration is a must.
