Following last year’s amazing breakthrough event: KulimeLA 2009 – 20th Anniversary of the Los Angeles International Gurukuli Reunion, we are proud to start a new tradition with our gatherings. Please join us on Saturday July 31st, the day before the Festival of the Chariots, to enjoy an afternoon of reconnecting with friends and enjoying the only 360° view of all metropolitan Los Angeles! This year, the reunion will be held at a new park called Blair Hills Park, with a back trail entrance into a hilltop area with a spectacular view known as the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. Entrance located off Jefferson Blvd. several blocks east of the original Culver Park on Duquesne Ave.

We will have an informal gathering, picnic, sports, activities for children, Bhajans and Prasadam. Lunch will be provided at approximately 1:00 pm. The annual reunion photo will be at 3:00 pm at the Scenic Overlook, after which time all are invited for Harinam in Santa Monica at the Promenade after 5:00 pm; this may be followed by an informal gathering at Dockweiler beach in Playa Del Rey for a bonfire, if there is sufficient interest.

Of course, Lord Jagannath has been at the center of our gatherings since the beginning, so the following day, Sunday, August 1st, is the 34th Annual Festival of the Chariots (Ratha Yatra) at Santa Monica and Venice Beaches.

All are welcome. The Reunion is free. Limited-edition t-shirts will be given to anyone who volunteers a little of their time to help.

The t-shirt was designed by Mahanta prabhu and Rasikananda dasa.

Kuli Reunion organizers: Kamal Vyas, Sridevi Fournier, Ram Prasad & Shakuntala Zakheim.

This event is sponsored by the Kuli Mela Association, a 501(c) Non-profit organization dedicated to serving an international community by supporting and encouraging its members to come together as friends in service, association and empowerment with a focus on spirituality.
