Namaskaar. Jai Sri Krishna.
We are nearing our fourth temple anniversary on May 3-4, 2014. We are preparing and looking forward to a celebration of another milestone in our existence. The temple committees and the directors are busy at putting the pieces together to make this event very productive and enjoyable.
During this year’s anniversary celebration we will also perform the Shiva Lingam Pratistha. Initial ceremonies have already begun and the next step is the installation of the Nandi followed by final Pratistha after Havan on the evening of May 3, 2014 Saturday night. The details of the program will be available to everyone via an E mail flyer and on site program brochure. We invite participation from every family in our congregation and look forward to the sponsorships and support. Typically this is our biggest fundraiser for the year and we ask you to come out and send us your contributions. Sponsorships are $250/-, $500/- and $1000/-. You can also make Aarti or Havan contributions at $21/- , $51/- and $101/-. Moorti sponsorships are $5000/- and the payment can be made over three years. Please contact any member of the committee or myself to let us know. The two day event will begin at 8 am on Saturday and conclude at about 3 pm on Sunday. There will be Havans on both days and meals will be served each day (by sponsors and volunteers). Should you wish to contribute to any event including support for meals – please let us know? Each meal is already sponsored but additional sponsors are welcome and will be recognized.
This is also the time for annual change of Vastras (clothing) of
the idols and those of you interested in acquiring the changed
vastras can inform Jyotiben and these will be available for
purchase at $250/- each. For the Pratistha there is an option
for any family to acquire a metallic yantra (to be embedded) in
their name for $51/- each and please contact Jyotiben at the
earliest to inform her.
With warm regards and best wishes from all of us at the temple and on behalf of all volunteers, contributors the Executive Committee and the Board of Trustees.
Please remember that “your legacy is determined by not
who you are, or what you keep, but instead by what you give and
how you change the environment around you to make it better for
others to follow, after you have left.”
Jai Sri Krishna!
