The Upanishads, a text containing the philosophical concepts of Hinduism, talks about dāna (giving to an individual, in distress or in need, as an act of virtue). The Upanishads states that the three characteristics of a good person are damah (self-restraint), daya (compassion or love for all life) and dāna (charity). 

Dāna can also take the form of philanthropic public projects that empower and help many. Historical records indicate that dāna is an ancient practice in Indian traditions, tracing back to Vedic traditions.

The Rig Veda, one of the four sacred texts in Hinduism, contains the earliest discussion of dāna in the Vedas. The Rig Veda relates it to satya (truth) and to the guilt one feels from not giving to those in need.

दानेन भुतानि वशीभवन्ति दानेन वैराण्यपि यान्ति नाशम्।

परोऽपि बन्धुत्वमुपैति दानैर्दान हि सर्वव्यसनानि हन्ति॥

dānena bhūtāni vaśībhavanti dānena vairāṇyapi yānti nāśam
paro’pi bandhutvamupaiti dānairdāna hi sarvavyasanāni hanti

दान से सभी प्राणी वश होते हैदान से बैर (शत्रुताओंका नाश होता है।
दान से शत्रु भी भाई बन जाता हैदान से सभी व्यसनों का नाश होता है॥


Charity can subdue any creature, charity can eliminate enemies and make them allies.Charity indeed is the cure for all bad things.

Annadan seva

Annadan seva

Annadana Seva

Temple is requesting all of the community to come forward and offer donations towards Annadanam at the temple every weekend and during special festivals and events. Temple is offering this Annadana seva as Mahaprasad (preetibhoj) to provide food for all the devotees that come to the temple. We celebrate many happy occasions such as anniversaries and birthdays, ets. So the temple requests that you choose it as a platform to celebrate those events with a puja and Annadanam in the temple and invite all your family and friends and celebrate in the divine presence of the almighty. 

 

Every Sunday we perform the Ganesha abhishekam for the Annadanam sponsor as our token of appreciation. After the abhishekam, we have a satsang and aarti followed by mahaprasad(preetibhoj). For this service to be performed, a prior reservation will need to be made with the temple management. If 100 members of family and friends are invited for the celebration of an event, then the donation will be $201. If you want to invite more than 100 people or you want to come and cook in the temple yourself, please contact the temple management. The donation made in this category will only be used for this purpose. All donations are tax deductible as law permits.
