A Sunday to cherish!

Jai Maa Ambe! It was a very special Sunday at your favourite temple. We had seers from Devkuba Ashram at Rajkot in Rajasthan visiting us in the afternoon.The special guests were Shri Rushi Bapu and Vishveshwari Mataji. Creating infectious enthusiasm and happiness around were beautiful, little girls performing traditional dance moves. They were trained by dancer Shobithaben Balaji. Some little ones sang a bhajan invoking Lord Shiva and Lord Ganapathi. Guest singers Ravibhai Sharma, Vasantbhai, Dineshbhai & Rituben Bhourlay created a spiritual ambience with their soothing bhajans. Rituben and Chairman Jaswantbhai Maicha can be spotted distributing prizes to our little entertainers. The ones seen in the pics below being awarded prizes are Madhu, Sahana, Amrutha, Smrithi, Taranika and Harithra. Delicious mahaprasad followed the soul-uplifting Sunday Special aarti. Jai Mataji!!!

The winner takes it all!!!

Once again, volunteers from your favourite temple have figured among awardees from Hillingdon Borough for 2014. The privileged ones are our temple manager, Sanjivbhai Shukla, singer and drummer during auspicious occasions, Rituben Bhourlay, and religious worker, Drupenbhai Patel. They were conferred the `Something to be proud of’ award on Tuesday night at Uxbridge College.
This is an annual award presented to outstanding volunteers working within Hillingdon. It may be recalled that we won four such awards in 2013.
This is an initiative by the Hillingdon Association of Voluntary Services, The London Borough of Hillingdon, Hillingdon Interfaith Network, Uxbridge College and Dovetail Community Outreach. This year, British Airways has joined the venture as a sponsor.
It is with great pride that we congratulate our three winners this year on their achievement. Well done! Double congrats to Sanjivbhai Shukla as he is receiving the award for the second consecutive year. Best wishes to the trio and each of you devotees for your sterling service for Mataji.

The miniature Mataji, the cynosure of all eyes, radiated beauty and calm. Singers Buddhadevbhai & Sumitraben Kansara and Pareshbhai Lodhia with a few visiting singers ensured a lively afternoon for all with their soothing bhajans and musical play. There was commendable participation from devotees of all ages. The heavenly Sunday special aarti was a truly significant experience. The day ended with delicious Mahaprasad. On behalf of the temple, we wish Master Shivam a very happy bday once again. Jai Maa Ambe!!!
