Join The People’s Station 93.7 WBLK for the KARAST MAAT KWANZAA, an enhancement of the traditional Kwanzaa that adds five days to make it a twelve day ritual observance.

These five days serve to permeate the celebration with the spiritual traditions of the Afrikan Ancestors. KARAST MAAT KWANZAA makes use of the spiritual science. The KARAST MAAT KWANZAA observance serves to deepen our relationships, a deepening of our inner relationships of the true self, the Ancestors, our families, community, nations and earth as a whole. By designing the KARAST MAAT KWANZAA as a twelve day ritual we have aligned ourselves with the spiritual truth of the universe and of our nation. These five days correspond to festivals of Ancient Egypt and begin on December 21st!

The word KARAST Originated in Ancient Kemet (Egypt) (Which means anoint) from the Medu Neter (Which means sacred writings) MAAT are principles that govern creation, the universe and our society. And KWANZAA speaks to the uplifting and empowerment of the African-American community, THE KARAST MAAT KWANZAA speaks to the uplifting and empowerment of the entire human family.

TODAY IS DECEMBER 21ST AND WE OBSERVE THE PRINCIPLE OF MAAT

MAAT IS SYMBOLIZED BY A FEMALE DEITY THAT CORRESPONDS TO SEVEN PRINCIPLES THAT ARE ORDER, BALANCE, HARMONY, COMPASSION, RECIPROCITY, JUSTICE AND TRUTH. MAAT RELATES TO THIS RITUAL AS BEING THE FOUNDATION THAT WE ADHERE TO UPON ENTERING INTO THE OBSERVANCE OF THE HOLY DAYS. ON THIS DAY, WE ENSURE THAT ALL OF OUR ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO A COMPLETION. WE ARE IN A PLACE WHERE WE CAN QUIET THE MIND AND PROCEED UNBURDENED INTO THIS PERIOD OF STILLNESS, MEDITATION, REFLECTION, SELF EVALUATION, INSPIRATION, CREATIVITY AND TRANSFORMATION. OUR SCALES ARE BALANCED.
