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). All to wear traditional clothing, shoes on racks and keep your temple clean.

We look forward to a wonderful and invigorating 2017
