Ras Garba at the Flushing Hospital auditorium on October 18, 2015 at 3:00 p.m.
Šri Devi Navaratri will be celebrated at Flushing Hospital with seasonal colorful dances such as Dandia Ras and Rajasthani Ghoonar, Melodious singing, A power point presentation highlighting the celebration of Navaratri, etc.
This is truly a success story of our Temple’s outreach efforts. Our neighbors want to get to know our religion and our culture, and this event is a good platform to break down barriers and extend ourselves to the society at large.
There are many ways to celebrate Navaratri, as this is truly a socio-religious festival.
On the religious part, Devi, in her many forms such as Chandi, Durga, Parvati, Lakshmi and Saraswati, are worshiped and various blessings are sought from Her.
Another popular part Navaratri is the display religious and secular dolls on odd number of steps. It’s customary to extend invitations to others – especially to ladies and girls – so they visit our homes as representatives of the very forms of Devi that are being worshiped. Poojas are done to the forms of Devi at home as well in other people’s homes.
The really fun part, according to many, is the publicly organized Dandia and Ras dances over the weekends.
These dances will be highlighted in the Flushing Hospital auditorium on October 18, 2015 at 3:00 p.m.
Please join in this celebration if possible
