Dear students and parents,


Happy new year wishes to all families. 2019 is here. We have completed another eventful year.
Let’s recap our highlights for 2018.
Makar Sankranti was celebrated with shlokas and yoga with an explanation of the relationship of our earth and sun.
Ramnavami was wonderful with our young teachers presenting an exciting program. Our little ones shy of speaking were well covered with snippets of information from the life story of Ram.
Bharatnatyam presentations and overview of Ramnavami from different parts of India was refreshing.
All participants to include juniors, young adults and parents were enthusiastic in their presentations. We applaud them in their effort.
Graduation: Kunal and Rithvik were given a warm send off.
Ganesh Chaturthi an event that all enjoy - performing their individual and family poojas. The process of inviting Ganeshji as a special guest greeting, welcoming and taking care invokes emotions of respect, gratitude, service and compassion.

The different religious events that take place at the temple and the daily prayers help to instill in us a feeling of belonging, a prayerful attitude and humility. In the same way the teachings that are provided by our teachers on alternate Sundays for our children gently instill the feelings of human values that help build their confidence and character. These are necessary impressions called 'Samskaars'. These help build a spiritual foundation for them to balance their worldly exposures and experiences. Let us all come together for our children for this purpose.

We will continue to work together to enhance the rich spiritual teachings through our Vedas and scriptures. Suggestions and solutions are welcome.

"Education is a wasteful process unless knowledge is transformed into wisdom and wisdom is expressed in character. Teachers are reservoirs from which, through the process of education the students draw the water of life. Education must result in humility. Humility is the best credential for success in life". BABA.

We welcome newcomers and request timely and regular attendance. Suggestions are welcome and registration is open for the year ( Dues : $125/- per family per year. $150 if more than one child). All to wear traditional clothing, shoes on racks and keep your temple clean.

We thank you for letting us work with your youngsters. It is truly a joy. We look forward to a wonderful and invigorating 2019
