The southern California chapter of the Nandalala Mission was founded in 1999, and serves the communities in the greater Los Angeles area.
One of the distinguishing events that the volunteers of the southern California mission conduct every year is the beautiful Deepa Pooja, the Prayer of the Holy Lamps. It is an annual event conducted at twilight, and the prayer is performed by 108 families. Check out Pujyashri AKKA’s thoughts on Deepa Pooja
