Description


I have been a priest for the past 20 years and had been the head priest in the Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago, Lemont, IL. I have been teaching Veda throughout my priesthood. I have studied Krishna Yajur veda, Shaiva Agama, BA in History and Shiromani (MA- Lit) in Sanskrit. I have been teaching Sanskrit in several schools and colleges in India and USA. I have performed kumbhabhishekam at Aurora temple, Lemont temple, Levermore temple,California, Wisconsin temple and Ganesha temple, Texas and Bharatiya Temple, Munster, Indiana. I have conducted Maharudram with my disciples at Chinmaya Mission, IL and Hindu temple of Wisconsin. At present, I am teaching Veda for children and adults. Performing priestly services like Grahapravesh, Marriage, Upanayanam etc throughout United States and India. Daily services and special events like, Navaratri, Sree Rama Navami, Shivaratri, Ganesha Chaturthi, Krishna Janmastamiand, Diwali and all our Hindu festivals are being conducted at Shree Ganesha Gayathri Temole, Locport, IL. When I was teaching the Veda, I had a vision about the Goddess Gayathri. As per her direction we are blessed to establish this unique temple in the USA. Many people have seen only pictures of Gayathri but the goddess has given us this opportunity to appear herself in the form of Deity for all to worship. Finally, in the year 2005 we purchased a property on a 5 acre land in Lockport, IL. After a long battle with the city, the city did not pass for establishing a temple. After a lot of initial hurdles, we have purchased another property on a 2 acre lot in 151st Street, Lockport, IL. At present, we are conducting daily prayer and services at this location. One of our major plan is to conduct a Veda Pathashala for the young and for adults. I have been conducting Veda classes for the adults for a long time at various locations, now I will be imparting vedic knowledge to the young ones as well as adults in our temple. It will be one of its kinds in the USA. Our future plan is to move the main temple to a new building with a basement by the year 2012. Therefore, we humbly request your generous contribution to establish our Temple.
