We would like to invite you to our monthly Sunderkaand Parayan, every last Saturday of the month.
This is the most blessed Kaand or section in the whole of Ramayan and therefore it gains this unique name ‘Sunderkaand’. ‘Sunder’ means Beauty. Lord Hanuman’s other name is ‘Sundara’. In Sunderkaand, Sage Valmiki speaks about the achievements of Hanuman. For Hanuman nothing is impossible. His attitude always reminds us of self-confidence, faith, and devotion to Rama, fearlessness, and trustworthiness.
Love without attachment is light.

What: Sing Bhajans at Haridwar!
Location : “Chinmaya Haridwar”, 3551 NE John Olsen Ave, Hillsboro, OR 97124
Exclusive Opportunity for our members!
Devotional Singing (Bhajans) and Namasmarana (repetition of the Divine name) have often been prescribed by eminent divine personalities and true spiritual leaders as an age-old tool for spiritual, mental, and emotional upliftment. In short, an end result is an act of purification to one’s being and surroundings.
If you are our member or trial member and you or your child would like to sing Bhajans, here is the perfect opportunity, during our assembly! The bhajan singing slot is from 9:20 to-9:30am. Any devotional song, in any language, can be sung as long as all can sing along. Please prepare bhajan(s) to be sung in an assigned 10 minutes duration. You will need to be in the hall by 9:15 am. The lyrics of the bhajan need to reach our AV coordinators by Friday of the preceding week at the latest.
What: Cooking & serving for Homeless Shelter, every 1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month
Location: “Chinmaya Haridwar”, 3551 NE John Olsen Ave, Hillsboro, OR 97124
Every first and third Saturdays, we cook for a homeless shelter…
For the last 4 years, twice a month, volunteers cook and serve a meal at a homeless shelter, for about 100-120 residents. Few service projects do as much immediate good or offer such a meaningful, personal experience as volunteering to prepare and serve a meal to people in need.
*During the COVID-19 pandemic, all meal providing is “delivery only,” and volunteers cannot enter the shelter to cook or serve. We are cooking either at home or at Haridwar without a group, considering social distancing guidelines.
We encourage you to sponsor one time meal for the shelter ($150) or part of the meal through the button below, we will keep it as the seed money dedicated for this activity. Please check with your employer about matching grants, it doubles your donation’s impact today!
Thank you for your kindness & generosity in advance!
