East London & Essex Brahm Samaj Time Line

It is hard to imagine that East London & Essex Brahm Samaj started in a small shop called the Chocolate Box with just 5 founding members and today flourishes with over 400 families. East London & Essex Brahm Samaj over the years has become an integral part of the growing Brahmin population attracting people not just from the local area, but also across the whole country.

The Samaj today stands as one of the most active Brahm Samaj's in Europe having organised various events on small and large scales, invited key guests and priests, organised trips in England and abroad and created a sense of belonging for the members of the Samaj.
