Deepavali was celebrated at Houston Namadwaar on Sunday October 27 2019. Bhajans were sung by children. Then it was time for sparkler and fireworks fun. Children had a wonderful time playing together. A kids special dinner was also arranged, so all children had a wonderful time celebrating Deepavali with families.
The next day, Monday October 28 2019, Sri Swamiji’s jayanthi was celebrated with Akhanda Mahamantra chanting all day. In the evening Guru Paduka Abhishekam was performed as children sang songs on Sri Swamiji. The Govardhana Uddharana chapters of Srimad Bhagavatam were also chanted as it was also the day that Sri Krishna lifted Govardhana hill to protect the Gopas. Everyone chanted the Mahamantra together again, as Sri Swamiji’s favorite foods were offered as Neivedyam.
