First Anniversary!

The function to commemorate the completion of One Year of the Eire Vedanta Society, Dublin held on 16 June 2019 at Nivedita House went off well, all by His grace. About 75 people and 20 children attended the function.

The children of Sanatana-Ireland did the Vedic Chanting and one bhajan. Swami Vimokshananda welcomed the gathering. Among the distinguished guests were Ms Rose Emmet, the Local Community Leader, Ms Punam Rane, the newly elected India-born Councillor, Mr Michael Sullivan, representing Dublin Inter-Faith Forum, Mr Jagan a Social Worker and Mr Dipak Inamdar of the Vedic Hindu Cultural Centre.

A devotional singing group called “Chant & Chai” did some bhajans with verve and vigour. The programme included children’s Play & Learn, Talks, given by guest speakers interspersed with bhajan singing by devotees.

Swami Purnananda gave a short Report of Activities and a future vision. The programme came to a close with a Vote of Thanks by Prof Siddhartha Sen followed by a short Arati and Lunch prasad.
