Dear Community Members,

As you know, the second wave of COVID-19 has hit India very hard. More than 400,000 new cases every day and thousands of people are dying. We are losing many lives due to the shortage of life-saving equipment. Hindu Center of Virginia is raising funds to provide emergency medical supplies to local organizations that are helping out the needy.

Please contribute generously to this cause. You can link on the link below and check out to pay.


We are also performing Maha Mrityunjaya Japa and Homam for the well-being and speedy recovery from the Pandemic’s devastating effect in India and across the world.

Maha Mruthyunjaya Japa at 6:30 from May 3rd through May 22nd

Maha Mruthyunjaya Sahasra Japa Homam - May 23rd at 10 am

Thank you
