Dharma and Yoga Fest draws thousands
Submitted By Gaurang Desai
In what may be the first event of its kind in Bay Area, more than 15,000 people attended two events, one at Mission College in Santa Clara and another at Alameda County Fair grounds in Pleasanton, to celebrate Universal Peace on Swami VivekanandaÕs 150th birthday. These one day grand cultural events, called Dharma and Yoga Fest, were organized by Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), Sunnyvale Hindu Temple and Fremont Hindu Temple with support from over 40 Bay Area organizations. The Dharma and Yoga Fest events were the culmination of HSS events during a year long celebration of Swami VivekanandaÕs 150th birth anniversary.
