    Previous Events:

    GSCA Summer Youth 2020 program scheduled on Sat, July 11th

    The current pandemic and consequent lock down have forced us to stay at home. It has however, given us the opportunity to pursue our passions and even venture into newer areas of interest.
    GSCA kids have also been subjected to various restrictions imposed on them. They have not been able to go to school, meet friends, and continue with their outdoor activities. For the first time, they experienced “virtual learning” and had to face all the challenges associated with it.
    They have worked very hard for it and deserve that all GSCA families watch their program.
    Let us all watch the program and encourage our kids. They are the future of GSCA.

    When the entire world is going through a phase of extreme turmoil, and we are dealing with tremendous uncertainties, to have peace in mind has become important – more now than ever. This pandemic calamity has forced us to find a universal connection to something bigger than ourselves, and search for meaning in life. This sense of spirituality along with routine meditation could offer answers to many questions and calm our minds.

    We are very pleased to organize an online discourse conducted by Swami Sarvapriyananda Maharaj, Minister and Spiritual Leader of the Vedanta Society of New York. He will speak on “Spirituality in Daily Life”.

    The event will be graced by the Chief Guest Hon. Counsel General Shri Sandeep Chakravorty.

    About Us

    Garden State Cultural Association(GSCA) is an Indian American non-profit organization based in New Jersey, USA. Its primary objective is to promote Indian social, cultural and religious events throughout the year. In addition, it provides an opportunity for the children to learn about the rich and ancient cultural heritage of India, through organizing various talent shows, literary events and other cultural events where the youths actively participate.

    During early nineties, a group of well-diversified highly educated Indians Americans from the Central New Jersey felt the necessity to promote various Indian cultural activities in New Jersey. GSCA (Garden State Cultural Association) thereby emerged as an embryonic organization in January 1992 by several active and founding members from Garden State Puja Committee, with the help of many new friends and well wishers. This grass-root organization (GSCA) was founded without any financial asset but with lots of enthusiasm and excellent new programs. It received the Federal tax-exempt status as a nonprofit organization in 1993.
