A celebration of Indian culture, tradition, and togetherness to spread the joy and richness of India’s heritage
Om Sri Sai Balaji Temple, Monroe in New Jersey, recently celebrated the Teej festival organized by the Bihar Jharkhand Association of North America (BJANA). This Hindu festival is observed by women to welcome the arrival of monsoon season and wish for the long life of their husband or future husband.
The celebration of the festival began with the traditional Teej puja, where BJANA women gathered to offer prayers and sought blessings for the well-being of their families and loved ones.
Organizers were ecstatic about the event, bringing the rich cultural heritage of India to the heart of New Jersey. President of BJANA Anurag Kumar and Vice President Sanjeev Singh expressed their appreciation for the event.
“Teej is not just a festival; it’s a celebration of culture, tradition, and togetherness. We are proud to bring this festival to our community and share the joy and richness of our heritage,” they added further.
BJANA extended a warm welcome to everyone in the community who attended and were part of this cultural extravaganza. Rajiv Akhaury from the Om Sri Sai Balaji Temple arranged the venue for the event to make a deeper cultural connection among the community members.
