The Bay Area Chinmaya Mission community gathered on Saturday at Chinmaya Sandeepany to celebrate Diwali. First we were treated to an hour of bhajans by Swaranjali. Then about 250 children performed a samashti Lakshmi-Kuber puja led by Pandit Ravichandran-ji, and in the presence of Swami Advaitananda-ji. After a sumptuous dinner, the night ended with raas and dandia.
