On 26 July 2014, as part of their annual International night, we took our Festival of Vedic India program into Melbourne High School.
We had a henna and Gopi dots stall as well as a space for people to try on Indian traditional wear. The traditional wear included saris, lehengas, jewellery for the women, and kurta, pants, shawl, and turbans for the men. In the photos you can see that even the principal, Mr Jeremy Ludowyke, was excited to participate by getting dressed up.
We also had flower garlands which we distributed, and the guests accepted with great appreciation. We served prasadam from 7 pm to 8 pm, which so many people came and complimented us on.
Following this we had a kirtan on stage, where the audience participated in a call and response fashion. Some audience members were so inspired by the devotees dancing on stage that they began dancing in the aisles.
As we had hoped Melbourne High School has already invited us to come back next year.
