We will honor our Gurudeva, His Holiness Sri Swami Satchidananda and appreciate the Divine Light at the heart of all spiritual traditions. In the morning, join us for a special puja at Chidambaram followed by a Light of Truth Universal Service at LOTUS All Faiths Hall and an interfaith program in the afternoon. In the evening we will have heartfelt offerings from the sangha and friends of Yogaville.
