The Houston Nama Saptaha Utsav 2010 is here!
What is it all about?
A seven day celebration of the Divine Name – from December 27th 2010 to January 2nd, 2011.
The seven day celebration will have, apart from Akhanda Nama Sankirtan, events involving Bhagavata Dharma including special events like an outdoor celebrations and new-year-eve special programs!
And this satsang event is special, as it is welcoming the New Year 2011 with divine prayers for unity and brotherhood, with special prayers for peace and prosperity of each of our families, our city and state, our nation and the world as a whole.
It is a time to earnestly pray to the Divine so that the New Year sees no seething of the Mother Earth manifesting in the form of natural calamities; so that the New Year continues to see peace in our Nation, keeping it free from any kind of extraneous attack; so that the New Year sees a cure in all kinds of physical and mental ailments in suffering families and wipes sorrows from all troubled hearts; so that the New Year sees all-round health and happiness, keeping us physically and mentally sound; so that the New Year ushers in a wealth of peace, joy and love in all our lives.
When prayers are done in a satsang, with Nama, it becomes a celebration, a grand celebration indeed!
So, after all, this event is a celebration. A celebration of brotherhood, love and amity as we welcome the New Year!
Friends that love to celebrate arrive from in and around Texas and different parts of the country travel to Houston Namadwaar to attend the seven day program! And our friends and brothers from other temples in and around Houston will also honor us by their presence and participation.
