Sri Raghavendra Swami Aaradhana - Manchester

Purna Vidya UK team had a great experience in celebrating Sri Raghavendra Swami Aaradhana held at Manchester on 27 August 2016. The Environment at the Hindu Temple, was made very pleasant with Vedic rituals conducted by priest Mr.Santosh from Udipi, Karnataka,India. Around 200 devotees attended the event. We had setup Purna Vidya Stall in the main hall and were overwhelmed with the devotee’s interest and enthusiasm towards the Purna Vidya Organisation and its activities. The stall welcomed the devotees by providing an overview about Purna Vidya activities globally and the published books. Children were very happy with Purna Vidya Books especially with Panchatantra stories. Adults showed their interest towards the Vedic Heritage classes and enquired about the Bhagavat Gita sessions. In the afternoon, the cultural programme was conducted by Children from the Purna Vidya team from Balaji Vedic School and Purna Vidya Preston with chanting of Prayers, Bhajans, Bhagvad Gita Dhyana Shlokas and finally Bhagvad Gita Chapter 15 shlokas. Sri Subramanya and his team were happy with the Purna Vidya activities and promised to work as a partner and extend their support in future years. The event was attended by the Purna Vidya Team of Veena, Sai, Shriya, Keshav, Vasuprada, Sudarshan, Siddharth, Akshara, Sreekar, Sreevidya, Padmini and Suresh.
