Nandalala Mission NJ – Activities Planned for July 2016

Hi Everyone,

Here are the activities planned for the month of July 2016.

Please note: This month we have a special kids program as a part of the satsang celebrating Pujyasri Akka’s 75th birthday on Saturday, July 9th! Please mark your calendars and please make sure that your kids can attend.

#1 – Saturday, July 9th, 2016 from 6:00 – 7:30 PM: Satsang Celebrating Her Holiness Pujyasri Mathioli Saraswathy’s 75th Birthday

Please join us for a satsang celebrating Her Holiness Pujyasri Mathioli Saraswathy’s 75th birthday. Please RSVP by Wednesday, July 6th to confirm attendance so that we can plan accordingly.

This month we have a very special section for kids hosted by Mrs. Asha Subbu. She is going to pick select topics from our epics (Ramayana and Mahabharata) where Dharma was withheld and discuss with the kids how they can relate to them in their lives in school, home, field, etc. as well as how important it is to be righteous (Dharma). It is valuable for kids and we encourage all of our kids to attend.

Mrs. Asha has a bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Communications engineering (Vizag, India) and an MS in Computer Science from Wayne State in Detroit, MI. She has worked for Chase Bank, Consulted for Clifford Chance, LLP, and regularly volunteers for Chinmaya Mission.

Following Mrs. Asha’s program, we will continue with our regular satsang. Kindly RSVP by July 6th to confirm attendance.

Also, please contact Madhuri if you will be able to make prasadam (dish) for this event. This month’s satsang will be held at Prarthanai Peetam. Thank you.
