3. Reading about importance of commencing every ritual with worship of Deity Shri Ganesh, how to perform arti (Ritual of moving lit lamps), importance of chanting the Name of Kuladevata (Family Deity) and why to chant the Name of Deity Shri Dattatreya, I understood the importance of performing spiritual practice in the appropriate direction. – Mr Milan Pandya

4. The work of Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti of providing Hindu Dharma education and creating awareness in Hindus through the medium of such an exhibition is indeed praiseworthy. – Mr Gavane

Highlights

1. After soft copies of the matter was sent, the flexboards were printed in Arusha. The expenditure for the printing was borne by the Indian Ganesh devotees in Arusha.

2. Majority of the women at the function were dressed in saris. This shows that despite living abroad the Bharatiyas here have still preserved their culture.
