San Jose House, a satellite center of the Vedanta Society Berkeley, was started on Sri Ramanavami day on Sunday, April 20, 1975. To mark the 46th anniversary, Swami Prasannatmananda performed a short worship of Sri Ramakrishna with Arattrikam. Following the worship and arattrikam, Mrs. Sumita Chakravorty, a devotee, professional singer, and music teacher, sang Ramanama Sankirtanam.
