On Saturday, October 21, from 5:30-7:30pm, the Hindu Cultural and Educational Center (1940 E Army Post Road, Des Moines) will be hosting a celebration of the annual festival of Navaratri (for the Hindu goddess Durga) that includes bhajan singing and dancing.
Join the local Bhutanese Hindu community for a bhajan celebration as part of a Navaratri celebration, a nine-day festival for the Hindu goddess Durga (the other events of which guests are also welcome to attend—see the image below). Guests are welcome to join in the dancing and singing. (Wear comfortable, though modest clothes; remove shoes at door; do not point outstretched legs toward the statues of the deities or the priests.) A traditional meal (“prashad”) will be served at the conclusion of the service.
