HOUSTON, TEXAS, September 12, 2011 (Indoamerican News): Many years after a group of ardent followers met for prayer, meditation and shared experience in a small house on Cypress Street that Indo American News founder and publisher Dr. K. L. Sindwani and his wife Mohini donated to the cause, the Vedanta Society of Greater Houston has finally constructed its own temple.

The consecration and dedication ceremony will be held from 9:30 am through lunch at 1pm on Saturday, September 24, with worship and religious rituals performed in the morning by Swami Kripamayananda, the Head Minister of the Vedanta Society of Toronto, Canada, and assisted by Swami Sarvadevananda, the Assistant Minister of the Vedanta Society of Southern California, Hollywood.

An evening celebration will start at 5pm with a light dinner and a program that will feature entertainment. In attendance will be senior monks of the order as well as Harris County Judge Ed Emmett and City of Houston Mayor Annise Parker. The next day, on Sunday, September 25, the VSGH will celebrate its annual Durga Puja, with worship performed by the two Swamis.

VSGH is a volunteer, non-profit organization that spreads the idea of harmony of religions and unity of fellow human beings based on Sri Ramakrishna’s (the 19th century saint from West Bengal, India) experience. It was formed in 2003 by the amalgamation of two smaller organizations, the Ramakrishna Vedanta Center and the Vivekananda Vedanta Society.

    You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I believe I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me. I’m having a look forward to your next publish, I抣l try to get the cling of it!
