It was a unique and unforgettable Wednesday afternoon for students of St Andrews School at Adhya Shakti Mataji temple. They were in Mataji’s presence to gain a bit of exposure to Hindu religion and culture as well as visit the temple.
Temple authorities and volunteers welcomed the group with attractive garlands and offered them sweets. Mataji’s stunning looks and colourful attire did enthrall them for quite some time. Our little guests made very good use of the opportunity provided. They played the Manjira, performed a few basic yoga postures and gleefully took part in garba dancing. Father Steve Hardwicke from St Lawrence Church, Cowley, delivered a talk.
Our regular bhajan singers, Buddhevbhai Kansara and Sumitraben Kansara, sang delightful bhajans for the audience. They were ably supported on the tabla by Shri Bhagwan Chouhan, Councillor for Alperton ward.
Apart from Mr Chouhan, we had another special guest, Shankarji Dahal, who represented the Nepalese community. Temple Chairman Jaswantbhai Maicha and General Secretary Mamtaben Nagda were present on the occasion.
