Mahina Festival at Mouna Farm

SNEHA co-organized and participated in Mahina festival on November 16, 2013. This festival is observed on November full moon day and it is believed that after over fifteen years of dreaming to gather us together to experience Mahina, Hawaii's Moon serves to connect us to ourselves, each other and to all our relations. 

The program included a program which featured a rare Nepalese Temple moon dance, Nepalese music, Japanese and African moon performances and some sacred Hawaiian chants.  Thanks to Himalyan Treasures, our members, artists and supporters for making this program a success.
