SLC 2018 – Sunday 22nd July

Aadhik Maas Evening Katha – 4th-6th June

From Sunday 3rd June to Thursday 7th June, our Mandir will be graced by Bhuj santos, including Ghanshyamprasad Swami – an English speaking sant who is part of YM.

A 3 day katha will be held every evening from 4th June to 6th June from 6:00-8:00pm, with aarti taking place at 5:00pm followed by niyams, thaal and chesta.

‘Aadhik Maas’ / ‘Purushottam Mahino’ is a very holy month and essentially means an ‘extra month for the Lord’. An extra month in the Indian calendar to do more bhakti to please him. The power of this month gives extra punya as well and has the power to wash away sins. Therefore this katha is just the perfect thing!

Please join us in the evenings from 4th – 6th June.

Charity Bike Ride – Sunday 29th July

Following the success of the East London Charity Bike Ride in 2016, we’re all set to get pedalling again on Sunday 29th July 2018!

With a slightly shorter but hillier route, we will be starting our journey at East London Mandir and heading south of the river to tackle the hills of Woolwich. With a short pitstop and darshan at the recently opened Woolwich mandir, we will head north west to finish our 25 mile journey at Willesden mandir and help them celebrate their Patosav once again.

We’ll be fundraising for Raha International, and supporting Pedalling4Change who are cycling 500km in the heat of Kenya for this chosen charity!

A small and unique charity, Raha International help provide educational support to some of the underprivileged and orphaned children of Kenya.

Supporting them through education to at least secondary school – age 18 in Kenya – they help change the lives of these children as this level of education helps to ensure a decent job in their adult life. Empowerment through Education. By teaching and educating children, we can help to stamp out poverty in some of the worlds most vulnerable places, and this is what Raha International strives to achieve in Kenya.

All ages from 14 years and up are invited to participate, no matter what your cycling ability is – in 2016, we had participants that had never even owned a bike before!
