Events in Year 2017

Paryushan 2017

The time is here for all of us to seek forgiveness from our loved ones, as well as enemies (if any), for any intentional or unintentional harm that we may have caused them over the past year and also time for cleansing our system and helping ourselves to achieve purity in both mind and soul.

We are very blessed to have Sadhvi Sudha Ji visit us this year for Paryushan 2017. And to take full advantage of their time, we’re scheduling as many lectures as we can with her. This is a great opportunity to learn and gain profound knowledge in a semi-formal setting. If you would like the Sadhvi Ji to lecture on a certain topic, please let us know and we’ll forward the request to them.

Sadhviji is arriving on August 15th and departing on September 5th.
