The UK Parliament resounded with the sounds of shankhas (conch shells) and chants of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ earlier this week during diaspora organisation Sanatan Sanstha of UK’s (SSUK) ‘Yugprush’ event at the House of Commons.
Starting with a bhajan (devotional song), the evening also saw a presentation of ‘Kakbhushandi Samvad’ as well as bhajans by several SSUK members. Young British Hindus were also seen taking an active part in the celebratory event with a Bharatnatyam group dance, performed by a group of five young girls, and a presentation by two teens who spoke about their views on the euphoria they see about this momentous occasion.
The SSUK event also celebrated the life of Lord Krishna by reading the 12th chapter of Bhagavad Gita where the whole crowd constantly was euphoric, joining in the chants throughout the programme.
The chief guests of the event – which was conceptualised and executed by the SSUK team – was presided by Harrow MP Bob Blackman, Shri Raj Rajeshwar Guru ji and Brahmarishi Ashram Swami Surya Prabha Didi.
The parliamentary event comes ahead of the inauguration of the Ram Temple in the Indian city of Ayodhya on Jan 22, and reflects the widespread enthusiasm and excitement seen within the British Indian diaspora across the UK.
Recently, over 200 Hindu temples, community organisations, and associations nationwide have united in signing a significant UK declaration.
