On the auspicious occasion of Varsha pratipada (Traditional Hindu New Year), HSS sevikas, began with the divine reading of Shri Ram Katha, based on Vandaniya Mousi Ji's pravachans called Pathadarshini. It is a 10 day pravachan style discourse, exactly emualting what Vandaniya Mousiji -Lakshmibai Kelkar did in Marathi language 5 decades ago in Wardha, Maharashatra, India. Now, this has expnaded into 9 different languages.
Timings and zoom links are given to enable all to listen at convenient timings. More than 120 sevikas participated in the reading.
On January 30, 2022, we had the Volunteer Recognition Event for the “Paatshala” Initiative, a tutoring project started by Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, Alameda County. From Feb 2021-May 2021 we had 10 teenage volunteers who dedicated 1-3 hours every week to help tutor the underserved in the Burmese Community here in Oakland, California. The children were tutored in the subjects of Mathematics, Science, and English.
