    Dear All Hanuman Jayanti will be celebrated at the India Centre on Tuesday 11th of April 2017. Suderkand recital and puja will be be held in the temple @ India Centre Cardiff from 6pm followed by Bhajan & Aarti by Pandit Ji and Bhandara.

Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated to commemorate the birth of Hanuman Ji, the monkey God. He is the symbol of strength and energy. Hanuman is worshipped for his unyielding devotion to Rama and is remembered for his selfless dedication to the God. Hanuman is considered the living embodiment of the Karma Yogi (one whose meditation and devotion are demonstrated through hard work or service). Hanuman is ruler of the monkeys. Hanuman said "I am a humble messenger of Sri Rama. I have come here to serveRama, to do His work. By the command of Lord Rama, I have come here. I am fearless by the Grace of Lord Rama. I am not afraid of death. I welcome it if it comes while serving Lord Rama." In return for his unconditional love, Lord Rama granted him everlasting life. He promised that he would be worshipped alongside Rama and that his idol would be placed next to his. This is a very popular festival. It can be celebrated individually or in the temple. On this day, the sacred text, Hanuman Chalisa, is recited - a set of prayers glorifying Hanuman, describing his past times. Depending on the devotee, the text is either recited non-stop for 24 hours or sometimes it's performed a set number of times. Special Pujas are performed and offerings are made to Lord Hanuman. Some people have different rituals, such as sacred fire ceremonies. In India particularly, colourful processions fill the streets. People dance, carry idols of Lord Hanuman and some people wear masks and tails to imitate the monkey God. Every celebration is always accompanied by a period of fasting and then a big vegetarian feast.

    Dear All मंगल भवन अमंगल हारी द्रवहु सुदसरथ अजर बिहारी राम सिया राम सिया राम जय जय राम Ramnavmi will be celebrated at the India Centre on Tuesday 4th of April with the recitation of the SunderKand . Bring your family and friends to celebrate Ram Navami. Sunderkand starts at 6pm followed by Bhajan and Aarti by Panditji and Bhandara. This Ram Navmi is sponsored by Dr Badri Purbey, Mrs Sunaina Purbey and family. Ram Navami Rama (centre) with Laxman, Sita and Hanuman Rama was an incarnation of Vishnu and the hero of the Ramayana the Sanskrit epic of 24,000 stanzas. A continuous recital of the book takes place for about a week prior to the celebration and on the day itself, the highlights of the story are read in the temple. Rituals and ceremonies The house is thoroughly cleaned on Rama Navami and is also decorated. Offerings of fruit and flowers are placed on the family shrine and after an early bath, prayers are recited. The youngest female member of the household leads the puja (prayers) by applying a red tilak (mark) to all the other members of the family before everyone joins together in worship. An image or picture of baby Rama is placed in a covered cradle. At noon the covering is removed and Prasad (special sacred food) is offered to Rama, which may then be shared amongst the congregation. There is an element of fasting. Some people don't eat certain foods, particularly things like onions, garlic, some spices and wheat products. The festival is a focal point for moral reflection and being especially charitable to others. Celebrations at places associated with Sri Rama, like Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh and Ramesvaram in Tamil Nadu, attract thousands of devotees.
