Dear devotees,

Congratulations!!!! And thank you for your overwhelming support for the recently concluded Vigraha Prana Prathishtapana at your temple. As you all are aware this event was a grand success exceeding most of our expectations. We wish to thank all the volunteers, priests, stapathi, hired help (masons, tile layer, tent installers, heavy movers, crane operator, carpenter, lawn care personnel, etc.) sponsors, generous donors and devotees who made this possible. We wish and hope you will continue your support to take this temple forward to make it debt free, indianize and ultimately self reliant in its operations in the near future.

As you are also aware that the temple is being operated mostly by dedicated volunteers without any cost to the temple except our fixed costs from the mortgage, utilities, priest and other expenses. And to keep our costs low we encourage all the devotees to play an active role in keeping the temple clean as and when you see some area is in need of that service without waiting for an invitation to do so or please bring to the attention of the priest or the temple board at the earliest so appropriate measures can be taken.

As devotees we should expect the temple to carry out certain services like poojas to all deities, abhishekams for Shiva (evenings) and Balaji (mornings) etc. (new schedule at http://www.qchindutemple.com/temple_pooja_timings.php) and in general maintain the sanctity of our beloved temple and meet the community's need for Hindu religious rituals at their homes. We are striving to provide these services with all truth and honesty and with the spirit of dharma. We encourage the community to report to the temple board at the earliest, if in your opinion these or any other standards that you feel are important are not being upheld or any other suggestions, so necessary corrective actions can be taken to restore those services as fast as possible. This is your temple, do not be a by stander, demand and get the highest standard of service possible.

Some of you have contacted us regarding your names being listed in the wrong categories of donors or not listed at all. Please note carefully that:

  • This list was of only donations made by donors so far and not pledged amounts by these donors.
  • If your donation was not listed at all it could be because the donation was after the compilation of the list.
  • We understand the sensitivity with this issue and have taken utmost care to be accurate based on available records. If you still feel this is inaccurate please contact the temple board with any documentary proof such as cancelled checks or stock transaction information from your brokers or any other evidence you feel would corroborate your claim. Please bring it to our attention as soon as possible so we can continue to ensure the list of donors remains accurate.
  • The donors list emailed recently and published on the website is accurate as of July 29, 2008.

Finally, this is your temple, the house of your God, treat it like your own home, keep it clean don't wait for some body else to do it, if there is a problem with the facility or service, please contact or write to Temple board and help fixing those problems by bringing to the attention of the above authorities.

Sincerely
