Our Aim - Canberra Hindu Mandir

 
Dr Krishna Nadimpalli, President

 

The aim of the Mandir is to provide a platform based on Agama Sastra (traditional temple architecture) in meeting the religious and spiritual needs of those who seek God realisation through His various manifestations, in accordance with traditional Hinduism following the doctrine of Sanatana Dharma.  

As a Hindu practising community, we are an inclusive and peace loving community.  This temple will complement the services of the existing temples in Canberra serving the needs of the Hindu Practitioners living in Gungahlin and surrounding areas. We are united in voicing our needs and we would like to have 2 hectares of land away from the residential area that will cater for our current as well as future needs, without disturbing the residents.

Our Objectives

Spiritual Centre

We aim to meet the spiritual, ritual and ceremonial needs of steadily growing Hindu population in the Gungahlin district, North Canberra and interstate & overseas visitors.

Centre for Ceremonies

Once the facilities are built, people will find a place for regular religious activities, cultural learnings, marriages and other ceremonies.

Cultural Centre

In addition to conducting deity worships and religious classes, it will encourage learning of arts, such as music, traditional dances, yoga, meditation and ethnic languages

Centre of Learning

We will provide comprehensive state-of-the-art educational services include Indian languages, ancient scriptures, fine arts and cultural activities.

Religious Centre

There are many manifestations and most importantly the belief of trinity of Gods - Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, Hinduism believes in one and only one supreme God

Yoga Centre

Yoga is aimed at overall well being of the individual in harmony with nature. This helps in spiritual progression through internalising the senses and embracing the universe as one family - Vasudaiva Kutumbakum.

Hindu Heritage

Mandir will publish magazines and maintain a library of religious books and resources that will be used as a Hindu Heritage Museum and educational centre for researchers

Activities for Retirees

Provides a common platform for meeting spiritual needs of aged Hindu population through activities incidental to the spiritual well being - such as group prayers, discourses, talks on ancient scriptures.

About Us

About Us
Hindu Practitioners of Gungahlin (Canberra) district require a temple closer to their home to meet their spiritual and cultural needs complimented by the services provided by other temples in Woden and Belconnen districts. The need accentuated with the steady growth of Hindu Practitioners in Gungahlin (North Canberra) as reflected in the last Census. Strong demand by residents and their visiting families, relatives and friends from overseas and interstate has brought members of various Hindu Practitioners together to come up with a plan and proposal for a temple in fast growing Gungahlin district.
