Testimonials


Hi, my name is Gurinder S. Bassi I just wanted to thank you for letting us set up our New York Life booth at the mela. We as a company had a blast and learned a lot throughout the event. I am interested in having a booth set up at all your events please let me know what other events you will be holding.
Thank you
"Hare Krishna! Thank you all for organising and letting Art of Gifting put up a stall at Ananda Mela this year. It was a very wonderful experience. I was wondering if you could share any pictures of our stall that were taken during the event.
Thank you!
Ramya from Art of Gifting."

"Good morning Sanjay
On behalf of the IAWW Seniors Program we would like to extend a big thanks to you for giving us a booth at the Ananda Mela. It was a fantastic opportunity to connect with Indian seniors that were not aware of our program.
The Ananda Mela was impressive on many fronts; scale, number of attendees and vendors and above all how smoothly it was run. Please extend our thanks to the many organizers.
Kind Regards
Pran & Rita "
"Thank you Ananda Mela for giving me an opportunity to explore the island of Oahu, Hawaii. It was such a wonderful time for me to discover the genuine beauty of the island through its friendly local people and tasty cuisine. Adding to that, visiting the International Society for Krishna Consciousness temple made me feel deeply peaceful and welcomed by the generous hospitality of the members of the temple. Mahalo! ("Thank you" in Hawaiian)"

Dear Harivilasji,
Raji and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Anandamela. Organizing such a large-scale event involving many constituents and multiple programs is clearly a great challenge. Your leadership skills and the contribution of so many volunteers coordinated under your vision and well-defined goals is a great lesson in management.
Let me echo the community's sentiment and offer my heartfelt thanks for your continuing contribution to the community both at the secular and the spiritual levels.
Thanks also for the gift of the Mother Ganga text authored by Jaya Vijaya Dasa and the various other booklets that you have compiled. Look forward to reviewing them all in the weeks ahead.
Please let me know what are some convenient dates when we can visit the new temple site and the farm.
Warmest regards.

"Namaste! I'm Hien Ton and am a nursing student at Seattle University. This year is my first time attending the Ananda Mela festival, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience for me. I'm originally from Vietnam, yet I have fallen in love with Bollywood and Bhangra music, and I started learning the dance steps on Youtube and practice them on my own. I believe that anyone can be a Bhangra dancer as long as we flow and let the high energetic beats take us away. Balle balle!"

Best regards,
-Hien Ton-
