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Presently, as the Government has withdrawn the state of emergency and allowed travelling because the situation has improved considerably in Japan including in and around Tokyo, we are glad to announce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
