Description

Come and celebrate the auspicious occasion of Diwali with a devotional and fun filled night on Saturday 29th October!!

The night will kick off with devotional bhajans leading onto the family Lakshmi Pooja, which will be personally guided by Swami Aparokshananda.

Lakshmi Pooja is an opportunity to reconnect with our cultural and spiritual roots through understanding the significance of pooja and how to perform it. Swami Aparokshananda will guide families step by step on how to perform the pooja. Each family will take home the items they used for the pooja, including the idol as well as comprehensive instructions on how to perform the pooja. This is an invaluable experience for the whole family to come together through worship and devotion.

Following the Lakshmi Pooja we will have some performances by our Point Cook centre on the significance of Diwali.

We will then begin the festivities, but not before enjoying the full dinner prasad!

Some of the activities include:

  • Face painting
  • Henna
  • Archery
  • Sparklers
  • Khabbadi
  • Dandiya/Garba

Team registrations for khabbadi will be open before the date. We will be playing with modified rules to ensure the safety of all participants. Please note that children below the age of 12 will not be permitted to participate in khabbadi.

The entire event is free so please bring along your family and friends to celebrate and enjoy the night!
