Temple worship is an integral part of Hindu culture, giving people a place to go to for relief and assurance. It is necessary to create unity with each other, and to help get connected to the Supreme Lord within. But does it end there?
Join us for this special session with Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha, as he guides us along the path of devotion, and shows us how temple worship is an important initial step towards living successfully with courage, peace and joy. This talk is organized by Ayyappa Seva Sangam, Federal Territory and Selangor, Malaysia.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
