APPRECIATIVE COMMENT by Anita and Prakash Prabhu (Bangalore)

It is our pleasure to share our experience on our visit to SDD Janmashtami activity at National College on Tuesday, 15th August along with our son. Anantadev was explaining Bhagavad Gita when we arrived at the spot, we were surprised to see so many deaf assembled in the lecture room at National College, Jayanagar, Bangalore. My son enjoyed being a part of the deaf world where he could enjoy seeing us playing games such as drawing a circle covering the word 'KRISHNA' on a blackboard with our eyes being blindfolded, and the other game was that of hitting the mug which was hanging from the ceiling with blindfolded eyes outdoors. It was a good programme where some activities were included. We had a nice chat with our old mates and had exchanged such news with them. At the end of the programme, prasadam dinner was served to all of us and we enjoyed talking with people while eating the prasadam.

It was really great to understand some slokas of Bhagavad Gita as these are indeed applied to the real meanings in our daily routines of our lives. We would appeal to you all to attend the program on every first Sunday of every month if you can because it imparts some valuable information and helps you to get a clear picture of what Bhagavad Gita is all about. Anantadev takes pains to explain the meanings of the existence of life to the deaf and make all of us lead good & peaceful lives. Obviously, we are well known that we can't understand what other hearing Gurus talking about God. Why don't we take this opportunity to understand Anantadev's explanations where we have the ability to understand and ask questions if any. Never miss an opportunity! Kindly accept the blessings of Lord Krishna by chanting....
Always be Happy.

Best Regards
