Our Way Of LifeHinduism is the way of life that deeply influences our thinking, behavior and attitude toward oneself and others. Our Dharma or Godly duties becomes interwoven in our lifestyle. Seeking higher knowledge or enlightenment, living peacefully, expressing gratitude, devotion and exercising moral principles are core practices. The very act of living and core practices becomes a form of worship.
Yoga & MeditationHarikatha, literally " Story of Lord", is a form of Hindu traditional discourse in which the storyteller explores a traditional theme, usually the life of a saint or a story from an Indian epic.
We started a focused experiment with the Seminar Series called “Learning the Tradition of Hinduism” starting from September 14, 2002. This has evolved in 2003 into separate adult and children’s program, in addition to a Frequently Asked Questions of Hinduism on a separate web page, and a Reading Room with a library of books at the temple.
