Special Occasions

We celebrate Sri Ramana Maharshi’s Jayanti (Birthday in January), Aradhana (Samadhi in April/May) and Advent at Arunachala (September) each year. These celebrations are held at the Age Well Center in Fremont. Programs include chanting, a spiritual talk about the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, performance by children, music, chanting of vedic hymns and arati (expression of gratitude). A sumptuous vegetarian lunch of home-made dishes is served at the end of each program at no charge. These events are free and open to the public. No registration is required.
