Frequently asked questions

The Vedas teach us that the material body is temporary and the soul is eternal.  Most people avoid facing up to the fact that they will die and therefore miss an opportunity to prepare for their departure.

By including the temple in your Will, you can give others the same opportunity of spiritual advancement that you have benefitted from.  By facilitating the temple’s outreach efforts, many people will experience the good fortune of coming into contact with Sanatan dharma (the eternal religion).
