Puja is a Sanskrit word, which among other things may mean giving attention to something or someone. It can be a spiritual celebration, a celebration of a special guest or an important event. A gongpuja can have different durations, but usually this is an event that lasts one night. A gongpuja has an intention set by those who play gongs through the night. An intention may be that the puja will focus on increased awareness of charity and joy for all living beings. Intention with the puja is read aloud by the leader of the puja night to all who are present.

 

Dear Beautiful Soul

May you find peace
May you be protected
May you find strenght
May you be free from pain
May you be free from suffering

May you be happy
May you have love
May you have clarity
May you be healed

May your good vibrations benefit all sentient beings at all times.
May the gongs give a new life filled with happiness for all that comes and listen to you playing them.
May the gongs express their true healing nature within you and radiate healing for all at the Gong Puja.
May the gong puja create a atmosphere of love and unity for all living sentient beings.

Drum sound rises on the air, its throb, my heart. A voice inside the beat says, I know you're tired, but come. This is the way.

Rumi

Light of Summer Gong Puja – Festival Last Night (20:00-07:00)

Celebrating the midsummer with a big bonfire with a gong puja is just a perfect end of the GONG & ALIVENESS FESTIVAL. We will start around 20:00 with the bonfire and enjoy the company of each other in the light of the fire. Around 22:00 we will start preparing for the Gong Puja.

Puja is a Sanskrit word, which among other things may mean giving attention to something or someone. It can be a spiritual celebration, a celebration of a special guest or an important event. A gongpuja can have different durations, but usually this is an event that lasts one night.

A gongpuja has an intention set by those who play gongs through the night. An intention may be that the puja will focus on increased awareness of charity and joy for all living beings.
Intention with the puja is read aloud by the leader of the puja night to all who are present.

During the night, the gongs (six gongs) will sound in a steady rhythm, frequency and even sound level.

The player follows a given game plan and it is usually between four to seven gongplayers and gongmasters who play during the night. All players rounds off their playing session in a good way so that smooth flow and steady rhythm are kept throughout the night.

The sound of the gongs emits one hour before awakening participants.

When all participants are awake they are greeted by gongmasters with a heart greeting and there is room for sharing before the participants are well desired home.

This Gong puja – during this year’s Festival intends to create more joy for the community. This year, this puja is led by Inger Ane Sletten, who brings with him six other fine gong players and empathic people. As everyone dedicates their time and focus to everyone who comes.

Norsk

Puja er et sanskrit ord, som blant annet kan bety å vie oppmerksomhet til noe eller noen. Det kan være en spirituell feiring, en feiring av en spesiell gjest eller en viktig begivenhet. En gongpuja kan ha forskjellig varighet, men vanligvis er dette en begivenhet som varer en hele natten gjennom.

En gongpuja har en intensjon som ble satt av de som spiller gonger gjennom natten. En intensjon kan være at pujaen vil ha fokus på økt bevissthet for nestekjærlighet og glede for alle levende vesener,.

Intensjon med pujaen leses høyt av leder for puja natten til alle som er tilstede.

I løpet av natten vil gongene (seks gonger) lyde i en jevn rytme, frekvens og et jevnt lydnivå.

Den som spiller følger en oppgitt spilleplan og det er som regel mellom fire til syv gongspiller og gongmestere som spiller i løpet av natten. Alle spillerne overleverer spillerunden på en god måte slik at jevn flyt og jevn rytme holdes hele natten.

Gongen toner ut en time før vekking av deltakere.

Når alle deltakere er våkne hilses de av gongmestere med en hjertehilsen og det gis rom for deling før deltakerne ønskes vel hjem.

Denne Gongpujaen under årets Festival har som intensjon å skape mer glede for felleskapet. I år ledes denne pujaen av Inger Ane Sletten som har med seg seks andre fine gongspillere og empatiske mennesker. Som alle dedikerer sin tid og fokus for alle som kommer.
