The Prime Minister David Cameron MP hosted his third annual Diwali celebration at 10 Downing Street, inviting professionals, organisations and religious representatives from across the Hindu community, including Manor President Srutidharma das. That evening the famous residence of the Prime Minister was transformed into an “Indian temple”, with divas, rangoli patterns, ornaments and a beautiful framed picture of Bhaktivedanta Manor’s deities, Sri Sri Radha Gokulananda.
To start the evening’s festivities, the Prime Minister requested Srutidharma das to perform Vedic prayers and at the moment the Hare Krishna mantra was chanted, an historic moment had come to pass.
A beautiful framed picture of Bhaktivedanta Manor’s deities Sri Sri Radha Gokulananda was place prominently in the Prime Minister’s abode.
