Events

Monthly Mahamane

We organize a monthly gathering called “Mahamane” on every second Saturday of the month. Members, families, and invitees come together to discuss and debate the teachings of Basava tatva, Sharana parampare, and their relevance in today’s world. During the event, different families take turns hosting dasoha, which is the distribution of prasada. Our aim is to promote community participation, lateral thinking, and peer support through this activity.
