Bromley Mandir is a fantastic place to celebrate, praise and appreciate our religion; Hinduism. The mandir gathering, held once a month, gives Hindu families- living in and around Bromley- a chance to come together and pray- through performing poojas and singing bhajans. It also provides a platform to discuss religious, cultural, spiritual as well as current issues.
Each one of us have our reasons to visit a temple, the occasions to visit a temple, the gods we feel close to. Some go for solace, some to seek answers, some for the positive energy, some quiet and peace and some because their parents have asked them to!
For many of us, a regular visit to the temple has been an integral part of growing up, of bonding with friends, of celebrating festivals. Seeking God’s blessings in happiness and in sorrow, whether it be a birth in the family, a marriage or the loss of a dear one – we go to the temple, to re-affirm our belief that all that happens is part of God’s plan!
An overwhelming majority at recently conducted public consultation session emphasised that our community needs a specific venue for faith and cultural activities in an accessible location. A place that can be part of our daily lives – for our families, children and elderly to pray, meet, celebrate and learn!
We now have the opportunity to create such a place – having recently identified a potential location for the temple. Like all great temples in India and elsewhere – bringing this task to fruition will completely depend on active participation and financial support from all of us – hence this appeal.
