Scriptural Discussion with Br. Ramanand

Next event (Weekly): Apr 8, 2020 7:30pm-9:30pm 

Scriptural discussion is led by Br. Ramanand. We are currently discussing the text - Lalita Sahasranama (1000 names of the Divine Mother)

The discussion, every Wednesday (7:30 pm to 8:30 pm) after the evening Arati, includes pronunciation, word-by-word meaning, commentary, followed by group discussion. 

Here on, we plan to have the discussion of Lalita Sahasranama and Tattva Bodha on alternate weeks. 

Please note that in case we aren't able to have the session on a Tuesday because of Br. Ramanand's travel schedule, we will have it on a Wednesday/Thursday of that week. Announcements will be made, with the details.

Some important pointers:
