108 Suryanamaskar (SN) is a yoga marathon. We need to prepare ourselves for this event with daily practice. To encourage and prepare for this event, we are starting a daily SN challenge of 8 weeks starting from Sunday Nov 21. This is also the Thanksgiving week and beginning of festive season. The best way to thank yourself is by making a promise (Sankalpa) to do SNs everyday.
For this 8 week challenge, please enter your name and weekly target in this Google sheet.
Dear HTW Devotees and Patrons:
November is the time of the year to be thankful. We give thanks for all the blessings we have received from above, but most of all we are thankful for the support of our devotees and HTW community. We are almost to the end of 2021, and this has been a challenging year for many of us. Without your support and commitment, the temple would not be the rich and vibrant community that it is today.
As we make our way to the year end, we reflect on the joyous events we celebrated throughout the year.
- From Pongal to Ugadi/Bihu/Baisakhi/Vishu we celebrated Vasudaiva Kutambakam. – The World is one family.
- Krishna Janamashtami, Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratri was celebrated with enthusiasm and vigor.
- Diwali brought us many opportunities to spread the love and light at the temple with the festivities and fireworks at the Mela.
We look forward to several exciting ventures at the temple in the coming years as we take the road to Kumbhabhishekam in 2023. We look forward to creating the Gopurams and carvings to enhance the exterior of the temple. The expansion project to build the classrooms, multicultural hall and Kitchen/Dining space has finally taken shape and the inauguration is planned for April 2022.
We offer you a unique opportunity to become a part of the temple community by contributing to any of the above-mentioned projects. All donations until 2026 will count towards the opportunity to have your name engraved on the wall as a valuable contributor to the temple.
We also invite you to be a sustainer to HTW programs by sponsoring an annual Puja or Annadanam for 2022 for any of our deities. Through the blessings given to you, you can be a source of change and support in this world.
As you shop this holiday season don’t forget to add us to your list of charities at Amazon Smile, Kroger (NPO A/C 45857) and various company matching programs.
Please send your suggestions and/or complaints to the executive committee to help us serve you better.
