Global Organization for Divinity will conduct its annual grand celebration of devotion, the Indian way, from December 20 to 27 this year through a 7-day “Madhurotsavam” (Sanskrit for “sweet celebration”) at Namadwaar Prayer House located at 3642 Bailey Ave, Manvel TX 77578 and at the Huong Lam Buddhist Temple at 4203 CR 89, Pearland TX 77584.
India’s culture is intertwined completely with its spirituality, and both of these aspects will be evident during this annual celebration that will focus on celebrating God through song, dance and listening to His stories from Indian scriptures.
Daily day-time events will be held at Namadwaar. These will include kirtan (singing the Lord’s praises), chanting His names, reading of the original Sanskrit text of Srimad Bhagavatam (an ancient Indian devotional scripture), processions with songs, spiritual discourses and classical performances.
From Dec 21-27, the evening program will begin at 6 pm at the Huong Lam Buddhist Temple, and will include cultural music and dance performances by various local artistes and the highlight spiritual discourse (in English, on Srimad Bhagavatam) by Mr. M.K. Ramanujam, disciple of His Holiness Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji from India.
Mr. Ramanujam, who has visited the Houston area several times before, is an excellent speaker who has absorbed the intricate essence of Indian scriptures directly from his Master. His insightful discourses throw beautiful, meaningful, practical light on the subtle aspects of Hinduism and ancient Indian wisdom. His discourses on devotion, especially, are brilliant and instill in the listeners love for the Lord and love for the path of devotion itself.
Interested people from all cultural and religious backgrounds are welcome to participate in this unique celebration. All events are free and open to the public.
Devotees from all around the USA including Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, California, Chicago, Florida, Virginia and other places will visit the Houston area for this celebration.
Global Organization for Divinity (G.O.D.) is a worldwide organization that aims to promote peace, harmony and universal love amid cultural diversity. It is involved in several spiritual, cultural and social activities across the world and in several cities in the USA, including the Houston area.
Established by G.O.D., the Houston Namadwaar is the first prayer house of its kind in the United States, where the divine names are continuously chanted. It is one of about 20 Namadwaars (Sanskrit term meaning door of the Divine Name; “Nama” – [divine] name, “Dwaar” – door) across the world, and part of G.O.D.’s worldwide initiative to strive towards universal peace and harmony through individual inner transformation, a result of chanting the divine names.
