Arya Samaj Educational & Cultural Society of BC had a successfull Ved Saptah from July 17th to July 22nd.
It is in this connection that Arya Samaj societies all over the World celebrate Ved Saptah during the month of July. Arya Samaj in Vancouver also celebrates Ved Saptah during which talks are given by eminent experts with knowledge of Vedas. This year ( 2023 ), in addition to our own priests Kamla Naidu and Parveen Kumar, we had the pleasure of having Mrs. Sneh Oberoi, Mritunjay Pandey and Swami Dr. Satya Prakash Ji as main speakers. On Saturday, July 22nd, we had children speaking various “Mantras” and explaining their meaning. The objective is to hear again and again as a refresher course and adopt all good points in our daily life.
We had a very good attendance during the entire week. The celebration was between 6 PM to 8 PM. The celebration started with “Sandhya” followed by melodious “Bhajans” and then talk on Vedas. This was followed by a delicious vegetarian dinner prepared by volunteers.
Annual Walk-a-thon OM flag parade was held on Sunday, July 23rd from 11 AM to 3 PM at the Bear Creek Park, 13750 – 88th Avenue, Surrey, BC
