It will take time to achieve our long term vision to open a Traditional Agamic Temple for Goddess Shakambhari Devi on 26 acres of wooded land. To work toward this goal we are establishing Murtis (Icons) of Lord Ganesha, Murugan, Shiva, Dhanvantari, and the Devi in a rented space as we continue to raise funds for the project of constructing a traditional Temple complex. Agamic Temples, consecrated through the prescribed rituals, are endowed with a palpable presence of Divine Shakti (energy). In an Agama Temple, a window is open to the inner realms, and visiting the Temple leads the mind of seekers deep into a meditative consciousness of mental peace. For many, this facilitates the realization of answers to questions and spontaneous healing. Such a Temple stabilizes the consciousness of the whole region where it is located by sending healing energies to the community, helping to avert poverty and dis-ease, and reducing crime and conflict between people. The devotees of such Temples find that their spiritual practices are sustained and energized by frequent visits to the Temple which helps them to work through the troubles they encounter in life. Though it may not be possible for the spiritual energies to build to their full potential within a rented space, establishing a dedicated space will be a major step toward our ultimate goal. We are confident that all who visit this space (or work on the project) will be touched by the grace of the Benevolent Divine Mother.
