We are happy to let you know that we’ll be celebrating India Night on Saturday, September 10 at our Center. This event will Center around the true Spirit of India that Gurudeva Paramahansa Yogananda brought to us almost 100 years ago. We will honor Mother India, our spiritual homeland with festive decorations, a featured silent auction, a gourmet vegetarian Indian meal, and an uplifting devotional program. We encourage all of you to wear your best Indian dress and enjoy this special fellowship event. Tickets to the event will be sold at the door on September 10. More information with a flyer about the event will be forthcoming. We look forward to your presence and participation.
At this time we are in need of volunteers and area leaders for audio-visual, setup and clean-up as well as many helping hands in the area of decorations, food serving, ticket sales, and program coordination. We will have volunteer sign-up sheets at the Info Table starting today after the Service.
On Thursday, August 25, we will have a Commemorative Service for the birth of Bhagavan Krishna. The Commemorative Service will begin at 8 pm and be preceded by a silent meditation at 7 pm. During the meditation, ushers will allow late arrivals to enter quietly preserving the sacred atmosphere. Those attending the Commemorative Service are asked to bring a flower and a monetary offering in an envelope.
On Saturday, August 27, we will be have a Kirtan meditation for Bhagavan Krishna from 3 to 9 pm.
