The prayers will be done in Vedic, an ancient Sanskrit language that was part of early Hindu culture. Khanna added that participants need not have any Hindu affiliation or let that be a deterrent from joining.
“Hindus are very inclusive,” he said. “This will be more spiritual than religious, focusing on well-being for all.”

The Springfield Hindu community continues contributing to local needs, raising $7,000 and splitting it between Family Needs, Inc. and Interfaith Hospitality Network earlier this month. They will continue to help the needy and explore more donor opportunities.
In the planning stage for this summer is another yoga camp, following a similar event in June 2019 in downtown Springfield. Khanna uses the Hindu term vasudhaiva kutumbakam, which translates to “We consider the world as one family” to sum up the intentions.
