Bhakti at Ekta Centre July 2019

Bhakti sandhya at Oshwal EKTA Centre on 31st Jul 19 was sponsored Rambhaben Devchand Shah Haste, Vimal, Rita, Jaymal, Maria AND Chandrakant Somchand Shah, Atula Kamlesh & Kala in memory of Kanchanben Devchand Shah, Devchandbhai Panachand Shah, Shantilal Gulabchand Shah, Somchandbhai Bimji Shah, Amratben Somchand, Minesh Somchand Shah, Mahendra Somchand Shah, Kirti Devraj Karamshi.

Once again, a brilliant spiritual evening of bhakti with a record number of people i.e. over 200 people incl quite a few young people attending the bhakti. Everyone was totally immersed in the bhakti and great to see so many joining in the garba. It was great to have guests (Vimalbhai’s brother and his family) all the way from Spain. Wonderful feedback has been received. My utmost thanks and appreciation for everyone who help make the monthly bhakti a very spiritual & enjoyable experience and a very special thank you to Vimalbhai who as always creates the beautiful moments via video and photos which people who cannot attend to able to enjoy the bhakti.

Brilliant Feedback received

Jaymal (from Spain)
First of all thank you everyone at The Ekta Centre for organizing the Bhakti.  The musicians, the singers and you Maheshbhai were all excellent.  I thought it was great how you explained the bhajans. We were also overwhelmed by the number of people who took part in the bhakti. It was nice to see so many familiar faces.  Also taking part in the garba was fun. It’s been a long time since the last time I danced garba. Finally, the best moment for me was the arti where everyone united in front of parswanath bhagwan to perform the arti. We remembered our parents and family members who are no longer with us.  And for us (the Spanish) who have never participated in a bhakti it was a wonderful learning experience. Thank you.

Yesterday’s Bhakti at Ekta centre to remember all our dearly departed family members was conducted superbly by Maheshbhai. He kept the audience young and old fully engaged with his in-depth explanation in English and Gujarati. With his joyous and enthusiastic softly spoken voice he made two hours fly by and I am sure he would have convinced many a people in the audience to come back and take part in Bhakti every month. By mentioning all the names of volunteers singers musicians etc was much appreciated

Memorable Bhakti evening – made possible by the wonderful singers, musicians, family, friends and volunteers. It was a lovely evening, spiritually uplifting with great energy.

Mahesh & Shobna
Bhajan Bhaki was very good. Great to have a happy number of devotees to attend. Remembrance photos was encouraging and our appreciation to Vimal for all the input. Our appreciation and good health to Maheshbhai + Bhakti Team. May such events enhance forever.

Thank you for wonderful bhakti, everything excellent, perfect, peaceful, and very entertaining enjoyable evening.

The Bhakti was amazing. Please thank Maheshbhai, the way he conducted it was excellent. He explained in English/Gujarati what each prayer was for or meant which helped. Also, the bhakti atmosphere was so good it compells you to want to attend the next one. Two hours of peaceful praying with no other thoughts but remembering your beloved departed, God and wishing to attend the next bhakti. Thank you for arranging this and the slide show.

As my first time attending, I enjoyed the Bhakti. I especially like the performers singers and the musicians and the explanations of all the songs. It was a very enjoyable evening.

I have attended a few Bhaktis before at Ekta Centre but this was one of the most enjoyable. I particularly liked Maheshbha’s explanations in Gujarati and in English which meant everyone – young and old could understand. Vimalbhai was also very good at getting everyone involved and up doing Garba. Wonderful music and a really nice evening.


Come and join us at our next Bhakti event on 21st August 2019
