Firstly, thanks for joining in the puja last night in such large numbers. We have never had 170+ connections (which translates to conservative estimate of 250 - 350 yogis and children).
Tonight is Dwitiya, the second night. There are no special materials to gather up for the rest of the nights. We'll plan to start again at 9pm. This night the Devi Suktam is read (Ya Devi Sarvabhuteshu...). Pasting below the text for tonight which is also available from the wonderful resources (see fowarded email message below). See you all tonight... JSM!
