    America is known for its blend of diverse cultures, each celebrating its own unique greatness. To recognize the greatness of Indian culture, devotees of the West region experienced Sanskruti- a celebration of Indian cultural heritage.

    This celebration was presented by the children and youth wings, who desired to please Swamishri by exploring their heritage. The audience was simply impressed by the performance, which included a combination of dramas, dances, speeches, and videos describing the beauty of India's culture.

    Prominent Indian businessmen from throughout California were on hand to witness the event. Also in attendance was Bhikkhu Dr. Vivekananda, a priest monk at the Chino Hills Buddhist temple, who has been supportive of the proposed construction of the new temple and cultural center. Each guest was greeted and blessed by Swamishri.

    Speeches from senior saints and blessings from Swamishri highlighted India's contributions to society and stressed the importance of preserving our unique culture. This preservation is made possible by timeless Hindu scriptures, mandirs and cultural centers, as well as saints who have devoted their lives to God.
