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
