Guru Puja is Celebrated Worldwide: Vancouver Dinner Honoring Kavindra Rishi

July 27 @ 6:45 pm - 11:00 pm

We offer our gratitude to ALL the teachers and yogis who have passed the Vedic knowledge forward often under great austerities. There is really no way to repay the service the Guru offers to students, other than to assist them in their Divine Service of transmitting the Vedic knowledge to others.

This year we will be celebrating with a dinner July 27, 2018 honoring our teacher Jeffrey Armstrong | Kavindra Rishi. Jeffrey teaches from the Brahma-Saraswati-Madhava-Gaudia-Vaishnava-Sampradaya lineage or more simply put: Inconceivably, Simultaneously, One & Different: The Distinctivist Path of Vedanta as taught by Jeffrey Armstrong Kavindra Rishi.

The scriptures may be the signposts pointing towards the path but the inspiration to follow that road stems from the Guru. The Guru is our strength when we lose our way. Each year Vedic students honor their teachers in gratitude, for all the learning they have received.

An aspirant cannot learn by their own endeavor alone; the Guru (teacher) is essential to one’s learning journey.

“Guru brahma Guru Vishnu Guru devo Maheshwaraha
Guru sakshaat Para brahman tasmai Shri gurave namaha”

We will be hosting a FREE dinner for students in Vancouver.

WHEN: July 27

TIME: 6:45- 11 pm
