Brooklyn Celebrates Diwali!

Sadhana and ISKCON NY, in partnership Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams, the NYC Commission on Human Rights and the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs invite one and all to a Diwali celebration and reflection. Sunny Jain, founder and dhol player of of the Brooklyn band Red Baraat, will share a Jain prayer and perform.

This event is free of charge, but we ask you to register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/diwali-celebration-at-brooklyn-borough-hall-tickets-51341728492

The theme of the gathering is a mantra from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad:

Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
(Lead me from darkness to light)

Diwali is a time when Hindus around the world celebrate the victory of good over evil, and light over darkness.

Our Brooklyn Diwali gathering will be a beautiful interfaith celebration and reflection on the battle between good and evil that is taking place all around us in our city, and within each of us. We will celebrate our unity and abundance, and we will pray for the wisdom for good judgement and discernment, and the courage to stay on the righteous path of dharma, truth and justice.

Hindu and interfaith leaders, and local elected officials will share prayers and Diwali messages of unity. We will also have cultural performances and delicious Indian snacks and refreshments.

To request an assistive listening device, interpretation, or another accommodation, please email Widad Hassan at whassan@cchr.nyc.gov by November 7th, 2018.

#UnitedforJustice Rally to Protest #Kathua, #Unnao and #Surat Rapes

Please come out and stand in solidarity with the girls who were brutalized and their families. Some actions are so vile that it becomes necessary for people to come forth and condemn them. The recent rapes in Unnao and Kathua, India that have come into light are nothing short of absolute monstrosities! Eight year old Asifa is dead, and the Unnao survivor lost her father in her battle to get justice. We need them to know that they are not alone in their fight! Come and show solidarity with the victims of these horrendous crimes. Let us grieve together and let us rage together. We have set up a GoFundMe page for the victims:https://www.gofundme.com/united-for-justice. All donations go towards the legal funds of the victim and to their families. Please consider donating, your contribution can help them bring these criminals to justice!
