Week of June 20 - June 26, 2016

“I have no nationality.  I have no consciousness of ‘’India’’ or ‘’America.’’  I love you just as I love my own Indian Family.  Good or bad I love alike, for all are my brothers and sisters.  Naughty or good, we are His children and we must now manifest that love.”

We encourage everyone to join us and share this special day of Service and Fellowship with other devotees. A delicious vegetarian lunch will be provided for all those who attend, so please email Sudha at vasudhaven@yahoo.com or sign up in the foyer to help us get an accurate headcount.
