Gayatri Pariwar
Gayatri Pariwar aims to bring heaven on earth by awakening divinity in man and is inspired by the motto “Hum badlenge, yug badlega (when we transform, the world transforms)” In order to achieve this goal we are building a unique place which will be a place of worship as well as a place to learn the skills required to transform one’s personality.  With this in mind, we have planned to install the idol of Ma Gayatri, the goddess of righteous intellect, Lord Hanuman, the highest ideal of devotion and Lord Ganesh, the giver of discriminatory knowledge. Along with this, we will also have space for various activities that will help the devotees in sculpting their personalities and developing themselves into what truly can be called a divine human being, because we believe that “Apna sudhaar hi sansaar ki sabse badi seva hai (reforming oneself is the biggest service to the world)”. These are some of the activities we are planning to organize at our new temple:  Bal-sanskar classes for kids for ages 4-15  Workshops & Seminars for youth and working professionals  Spiritual discourses, meditation & Gita classes  A platform to celebrate Indian cultural festivals  Gayatri Havan, Satyanarayan katha  Punsavan, Naamkaran, Vidya-aarambha, Annpraashan & other sanskars
