Salutations to the Summit of Stillness

We would like to dedicate a shloka composed by our Artistic Director, Radha Subramanian, as a reflection of our deepest gratitude and reverence to Mohanji

Spreading happiness and love through Bharatanatyam!

As a part of our founder Mohanji’s birthday celebrations, HSTD Global Member and Level 4 student Biljana Vozarevic presented a joyful dance demonstration at Speak Up, an Educational institute in Serbia, on February 14th – St Valentines Day.

It was a thematic presentation followed by a mini workshop for the kids based on unconditional love and selfless service that Mohanji always emphasises.

The wonder and joy on the kids’ face say it all. Enjoy glimpses from the program. More photos

Behind the Scenes

As soon as we came to know that Mohanji’s birthday is being celebrated at Puri Jagannath, we decided to offer a dance recital exclusively for his birthday.

Looking back this is a little sacred journey in itself. Compositions of Guru shlokas which of course spontaneously manifested, recording of songs, costume design, choreography, time management, the pains taking efforts of the children learning every new song, back to back rehearsals, online offline classes coordination, consistent efforts by all the team members, Gejje pooja, dress rehearsal, children helping one another with make up and costumes have all gone behind this production.

Needless to say, Mohanji’s grace is the guiding light from start to finish.
