NEW Monthly Programmes at the Vedanta Society of Japan
will be open to all for participation from July 2020
The Society had stopped general participation of its programmes since March of this year because of the state of emergency declared by the Government of Japan and also to avoid risks of contamination in view of the corona virus pandemic.
Presently, as the Government has withdrawn the state of emergency and allowed travelling because the situation has improved considerably in Japan including in and around Tokyo, we are glad to announce that we have decided to open our monthly programmes for participation of all from July.
However, following precautionary measures need to be followed strictly by the attendees.
1. To use masks
2. To sprinkle sanitizer on both hands (to be kept at the entrance) after entry
3. To wash both the hands and fingers with soap (to be kept at the washroom)
4. To wash mouth and gurgle a few times with tap water
Please note that though the Live streaming of all the programmes will be continued as before those who want to listen to the above-mentioned discourses including that of the Bhagavad Gita directly and also attend the Monthly Retreat are welcome to come to the Society and take part in them.
However, for attending the Bhagavad Gita discourses at the Society (1st Saturday) and the Monthly Retreats (3rd Sunday) prior information to the Society through e-mail (email@example.com) is necessary at least three days before the discourse/ Retreat.
