 6.35am*

 Option to take a boat service over to island (across 300 metres of lake water) to visit temple. Although an optional activity (due to the early morning rising) we recommend you join in this fascinating cultural experience. The temple's first programme is at 4.30am every morning, so this the second half of the morning programme.

From 7.00am there is the attendance of the 'Greeting of the Deities'. This ceremony begins with some spiritual music arranged by George Harrison (of the Beatles) in 1970 - George played the harmonium for the recording.

The programme continues with some chant music and an arati - aratis are ancient ceremonies that have taken place in Hindu and Buddhist temples for millennia.

Afterwards there is a talk on Bhagavad Gita, a Sanskrit philosophical text. Guests are welcome to stay for as long as they like, or may relax elsewhere on the island, as they wish. We depart from the talk early. (Image below: Lough Erne beside Inis Rath)

Note: as breakfast is later, you're welcome to take snacks during the early morning time if you feel hungry.
