Dear members of Hindu Samaj of Hamilton and Region,
First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of Hindu Samaj of Hamilton and Region for electing me as the President for the years 2019-2021. It has been my privilege to have served the temple in various capacities for a number of years in the past, but, this will be my first as a President. I am greatly esteemed for the opportunity given to me to serve the Samaj. I would like to congratulate the newly elected Board of Directors. They are as follows.
Mr. Prem Sharma- Vice President
Mr. Vinod Kapoor- Treasurer
Mr. Ramesh Panchal- General Secretary
Mrs. Uma Sharma- Religious Secretary
Mrs. Kruti Desai- Cultural Secretary
Mr. Anand Verma- Project Director
Mr. Satya Chaube- Maintenance in charge
Mr. Jagjit Nayyar- Kitchen Secretary
On behalf of the Board members and the entire Hindu Samaj members, I most sincerely thank the past Board members, who with little or no experience, served the Samaj with hard work, dedication and whole hearted commitment for the last two years.
In his sermon, Lord Buddha said, “Sangham Saranam Gachchham”-means, you merge in the group, (Samaj or Society). Samaj is as important as a family for religious, cultural and social development of human beings. With this in mind our forefathers built this Temple as a place to pray and worship and claim our unique Hindu Heritage with our families. Ours is the only and the most unique Temple in the Region catering to Hindus from all parts of the world. Please contact our priests or any board member for assistance.
I humbly request all the Hindu Samaj members to participate in our religious and cultural activities. Our vision is to involve youth in temple activities and elevate our Samaj involvement in community services to expand our horizon and establish our Samaj as a respected community in the Canadian Society at large.
