Starting June 12, the Sanatan Mandir of Tampa (311 E. Palm Ave.) will hold a new Satsang and discourse every Sunday at 10 a.m. The temple is starting the weekly event to connect the Hindu devotees of Tampa Bay culturally and socially.

The Sunday Satsang will allow the Hindu community leaders, entrepreneurs and mentors to share their life experiences and blessings with the audience. The free program will also provide an opportunity to introduce new members of the community.

The Satsang will start with bhajans, music and Pravachan, followed by an introduction of the sponsor family (or speaker) of the day. Maharprasad, or lunch, will be served afterward. For details or to RSVP, visit www.sanatanmandirtampa.org
