Connecting society with divinity is the main goal of the temple: Brahmeshanand Acharya
New Jersey : The influence of Sanatan Hindu Dharma is spreading globally. The temples serve as a significant medium to connect society with the divine. Today, there is a great need for spirituality in the world. Selfishness cannot lead us to victory; to serve the world, love, and spirituality are essential. Sanatan Dharma considers the entire world as its family. There is no discrimination in this religion, be it high or low, rich or poor. The ascetic way of life has kept Sanatan Dharma alive. The nature itself is considered divine, and places of worship are provided for it. Mutual respect will lead to peace and love. This message was delivered by Shree Datta Padmanabh Peeth, Peethadhishwar Padma Shri awardee Sadguru Brahmeshanand Acharya Swamiji.
In New Jersey USA, under the guidance of Pujya Mahant Swamiji, the inauguration of the Akshardham Hindu Temple took place on a grand scale. On this occasion, Pujya Swamiji was specially invited and he addressed the gathering.
Furthermore, Pujya Swamiji mentioned that this Akshardham Hindu Temple is a revolution initiated through the Swaminarayan organization by the founder and esteemed Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
