Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the New Year. By the Grace of Šri Mahã Vallabha Ganapati and all other deities of the Devasthãnam and with unstinting support of the devotees, this year has been very successful. All the festivals were celebrated on a grand scale with greater participation by the devotees.
Annual Conference by Young Hindu Professionals ‘Akshayam’ – Anubhava 2018 was organized in June and the theme of the conference was “The Science of Hinduism”. In addition to this Akshayam also organizes monthly lectures – ‘Learning Series’ on different subjects, which have become increasingly popular. The 4th International Yoga Day and Annual Health Fair were also organized in June, both were successful and very well participated. Summer Camp – with the theme ‘Hindu Heritage’ was conducted for one week for Patasala students in July with focus on yoga, Hindu heritage and recreational activities.
I take this opportunity to make a humble appeal to all the devotees in seeking generous donations to various impending projects: 1) Construction of Staff Quarters, 2) Repairs & renovations of the Temple in preparation for Jeeranodharanam (Kumbhabhishekam – 4th reconsecration) of all main Deities in 2020, 3) Endowment Fund.
‘The Hindu Temple Society of North America’ is a tax-exempt organisation by the IRS under section 501(c)(3). All donations are tax deductible.
I wish to express my sincere thanks to all of you for your invaluable support and friendship and appeal to you for your continued help and support for this noble cause. We welcome all suggestions for improvement and these will be carefully considered and implemented whenever possible. May the Blessings of Šri Mahã Vallabha Ganapati be always with you and your families.
Dr. Uma Mysorekar
