Report: Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi’s 168th Birth Anniversary Celebrations

On Sunday January 10, 2021, at 3:00 pm, a special worship was conducted on the occasion of 168th Birth Anniversary Celebration of Holy Mother Sri Sri Sarada Devi at the Vedanta Society Berkeley. Swami Prasannatmananda performed the worship. California has Stay at home orders due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, and as a result, devotees could not attend the worship in person. However, about 150 devotees watched the worship by Facebook Live and Live streaming on YouTube to celebrate the occasion. A few volunteers wearing masks and following social distancing helped in preparing for the puja and cooking prasad. Prasad (offered food) boxes were also distributed to volunteers.
