      2. Namaskar Maha Mantra Shibir (Part 2) January 26-27, 2013


      Those of you who attended the "Namaskar Maha Mantra" Shibir on October 20, 2012 and those of you who did not or could not attend that Shibir are going to get another chance on January 26/27 (Sat/Sun), 2013. We have received several requests for a Shibir of this kind from our members. This is in continuation of the Part 1.

      After knowing the vast, deep and profound meaning of this "Maha Mantra", many of you must have experienced better understanding and as a result when chanting the "Navakar Mantra" felt you could do with more "BHAV" (

      Param Pujya Panyasji Maharaj Saheb has done profound thinking on "Navakar Mantra" and fortunately (
      આપણામહદપુણ્યનાઉદયે) we have his writings available to us. We have, therefore, decided that we should try and explore some more for our own spiritual benefit (આઘ્યાત્મિક લાભ). This also will help us become a better person and our relationship with those who come into contact with us will improve for better.

      We are hopeful that you will take advantage of this opportunity to enrich by attending the Shibir with such enthusiasm that you all had shown last time.

      This is a TWO DAY Shibir and like last time, Breakfast, Lunch, Tea & Dinner will be served on BOTH days.

      Please click on the following link OR fill out the attached form to RSVP for Shibir.


      Thank you

      4. Tender Care Community Outreach Program (TCCOP)-Sunday, December 16th TOY DRIVE 


      Charity is not "giving" a DONATION..... of x amount of dollars, x minutes or x things....Charity is a feeling of contentment  that spreads in your heart when you are connected to the person you "help", a feeling that makes you feel worthy !! 


      We are pleased to announce that a non profit organization - Share-a-smile is joining hands with TCCOP for this worthy cause.  Share-a-Smile is a non-profit organization, started in the year 2002, by a group of youngsters to help, nurture and create better life around us. The organization aims at doing regular activities, drives, workshops year around along with other reputed organizations working in the areas of Child development, Women Empowerment, Health Awareness etc.


      We have chosen 2 organization with whom we will closely work and make our donation to.


      1. Toy Loan Program, a division of LA County- It is a unique Toy Library, which supplies toys to 73 other smaller centers across LA. This program is an incentive based program which develops a sense of responsibility in children through the observance of an honor code and merit system that gives praise and recognition when toys are returned on time and undamaged. 


      2. Nino Lations Unidos, Inc, is a private non-profit organization that recruits and trains Spanish speaking foster parents, and places Latino foster children in their homes, while monitoring their general welfare and attending to their many and varied bio-psycho-social needs, all under the guidance and supervision of the agency's multi-disciplinary professional staff.


      A Toy bin will be placed at the Temple from 10am-1pm on 16th Dec ,Sunday. We accept GENTLY USED and NEW toys.
