Gandhiji and Vedanta

We are pleased to offer a program on Mahatma Gandhi’s spiritual side of life, his love for the Gita and Vedanta, his yogic lifestyle and the relevance of Gandhiji’s principles to modern life. Even after 150 years of his birth, we find that his simplicity and minimalistic lifestyle along with his satya and ahimsa as the basic tenets of life are the greatest edicts that sustain the planet that is suffering from human exploitation and greed.

The program will start with Gandhiji’s favorite song (Vaishnava Janato). Children will dress up as Gandiji and present some of the best quotes of Gandhijji in their fun style. This will be followed by a panel discussion led by Swami Bodhanananda. Stay Tuned.

Venue: Lundy Plaza, 2050, Concourse Drive, Ste #38, San Jose

Day/Time: Sun Nov 10, 2019, 3pm - 5pm

Fees: FREE and Open for all.
