Holi is a festival of colors, of heralding Spring after a long dark Winter, a celebration of good over evil, of hope and joy. Nothing could be a greater testimonial to that than the JKYog Houston Holi Fest last Sunday! After a difficult 2 years where Houstonians faced challenges of varying degrees and complexities, the JKYog Houston Holi fest was a manifestation of hope, joy happiness, positivity, and enthusiasm. But there is more….

The entire event organized by volunteers of JKYog and devotees of Swami Mukundananda celebrated not only the joy of Spring with an afternoon filled with colorful festivities, but one of hope and opportunity for many, as it was also a Mega Charity Event for Education and Healthcare in rural India. 100% of the proceeds from this celebration, every dollar and every cent raised in this event will benefit Swamiji’s university under construction and charitable hospital in rural India.
