the 26th – Global
Basava Jayanti Celebrations – As a result of the worldwide tumult
caused by COVID-19, this year the annual event was held live online. It was be
a truly global event, with Basava associations from
all over the world participating. Prominent speakers who addressed the occasion
were India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and
Karnataka's Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa. The Veerashaiva Samaja of North America
afforded me the glorious opportunity to perform vachanas
for a short duration during these august celebrations. Here is the video
