Samanaji started their pravachan with a new year song about a new beginning, hope, and growth for 2015.

She stressed the importance of working with others in order to make any endeavor successful whether it’s at home, work, or JVBNA.
The program was also a send off for both Samaniji who will be in India for a few months. We wish them both a safe and spiritually rejuvenating trip to India and back.
