THE BRAHMOTSAVAM

What is Bramhostavam? “Brahma” means “great”.  “Utsavam” is a religious festival celebrated to bring welfare, tranquility and universal peace. Bramhostavam is the grandest of all the temple festivals. The Brahmotsavam festival will begin on the morning of Friday, June 10th and conclude on the evening of Sunday, June 12th. The origin of Brahmotsavam is the 9 day celebration of Lord Venkateswara at the Tirupathi Temple in India, and it traces all the way back to Lord Brahma, the Creator who first conducted this festival at Tirupathi.

​Be part of this Divine Festival and receive the blessings of Lord Varadaraja, Sri Devi and Sri Bhudevi! 

 

Sarve janaa: sukhino bhavanthu. 

May all the people in the world be Happy and Peaceful

JUNE 11TH | 3PM - 5:30PM

Prasant Radhakrishnan is a reknowned saxophonist, composer and educator steeped in South Indian classical Carnatic music and jazz. The foremost disciple of Carnatic saxophone pioneer, “Padmashri” Dr. Kadri Gopalnath, Prasant began developing his music over the course of nearly a decade of intensive musical training under his guru, much of which took place in the traditional gurukulam format of complete immersion. The rigor of this training, followed by the privilege of accompanying his teacher on stage in hundreds of concerts in subsequent years, fostered a deep understanding of Carnatic music.
