The Maine Hindu Temple invites the community to celebrate Holi; THE FESTIVAL OF COLORS on Sunday, March 15th 2015 from 12 pm to 3 pm.
Holi is one of the largest festivals in India and is widely celebrated by throwing colored powder and colored water at each other. It is also fondly called as “Rang Panchami”. Holi in India is celebrated at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day of the lunar month.
Holi is significant for commemorating many myths and legends and symbolizes cleansing, fresh start and celebrating the coming of spring. It brings in the spirit of togetherness and good cheer. At MHT we will play Holi only with colored powder gently. Also on this day we will have a “Mela”, a small Indian handicraft & food fair.
The program outline is:
– Puja & Aarti : 12 noon to 12.30pm
– Playing and celebrating holi, no throwing, but gently playing with colors
– Selling Chaat and Snack items
– Selling some handicrafts/kurtis/bags etc
Please see the attached flier for more details. All proceeds will support and benefit MHT, so lets us all celebrate Holi with colors, fun and food….HOLI HAI!!
