New Hindu Temple Inaugurated in Newark
Submitted By Ajay Jain Bhutoria
Bay Area Hanuman Temple was inaugurated by Newark Mayor Alan Nagy on April 28 followed by special Hanuman Pooja prayers.
This temple has the unique distinction of having Lord Hanuman facing his Lord, Rama, whom he worshiped with steadfast and selfless devotion. Tradition promises that regular visitors to the temple will gain special favor of Hanuman. According to Vedic Astrology, Lord Hanuman saves human beings from the anger of the planet Shani (Saturn); people with an ill-placed Saturn in their horoscopes visit this temple for astrological remedies. This is supposed to be the most effective way to appease Shani. Some astrologers believe that worshiping Hanuman can neutralize the ill-effect of Mangal (Mars) and practically any planet that has ill effect on human life.
The Temple also includes Hindu Deities Lord Ganesha, Lord Balaji, Lord Rama, Sita, Lakshmana, Lord Siva, Godesses Durga, Maa, Goddesses Laxmi ji, Godesses Sarswati.
This Temple is also a Cultural Center; activities for kids and youth are being organized including educational classes and community services to serve homeless shelters in and around Newark.
Mayor Alan Nagy congratulated the Founding Team and assured his full support. Temple President Dr Pradeep Kumar shared his vision for the Temple and Pundit Govind Srinivasan Ji spoke about the Importance of Sankat Mochan Hanuman Ji and chanted Vedic Mantras for bringing Love, Peace and Harmony to everyone. Community Leader and GOPIO SV President Ajay Jain Bhutoria congratulated the Team and shared that this is great way of passing India's rich cultural heritage, values, traditions and rituals to the younger generation.
