THE ABODE OF GODDESS DURGA IN NORTH AMERICA
A few words about my mission:
The most important message I received in my childhood, has always been guiding me towards a specific way of life.
"Do your duty properly. When you are doing it, never bother about anything, except the constructive criticism. Neglect the haunting of evilness created by selfish people. Doing something right. Remember: There are people who appreciate your good services and follow your path. Beyond all of them, God is there to support."
It has been and continues to be a valuable message in my life. I came across many instances which reminded me of this message. I never gave up. I never hesitated to do what is right. I have a purpose. It is determined, not by me, but by God.
My Mother, Sunthara Amma, origin from South India, always wanted me to be a Hindu Priest. I received certification in Priesthood studies in Thiruketheeswaram, Nallur and South India . Living as a Priest with all the relevant disciplines brings a total complacency. Being a priest in many temples in Sri Lanka,Â Malaysia and Canada, I have a satisfaction that I have done my duties properly.
When I landed in Canada, I knew I had a purpose. I had a drive in me to keep on pushing towards meeting that purpose. Even with my other responsibilities, an invisible force never let me to withdraw from my purpose.
That purpose was to fulfill the need of a Hindu temple, to propel the blessings of the almighty Goddess Sridurka and the need of a Hindu organization to foster the cultural values among the Hindu generation in North America.
With the blessing of Goddess Sri Durga, I was able to establish a Hindu Temple in Toronto.
My purpose is not complete yet. It had many tasks intertwined in it. The temple is not fully built yet. The Raja Gopuram project is still in progress. Also, our major task is to generate global awareness of spirituality and teachings of Hinduism.
My hope is we all join together for the wellbeing of people. For peace in the world...
