"Three Things Cannot Be Long Hidden:
The Sun, The Moon, and The Truth"
"Faith Becomes Lame, When it Ventures
Into Matters Pertaining to Reason!"
"No One Saves Us But Ourselves.
We Ourselves Must Walk The Path."
Sri Maha Saraswathi Hindu Temple
was opened by the beginning of year 2013 to serve the devotional, cultural and spiritual needs of the Hindu community in and around Central Illinois.
The temple observes all major Hindu functions throughout the year, along with daily pooja, abishekam, alankaram for the deities performed by the priest with assistance from temple volunteers on auspicious days.
Dakshina is an ancient tradition of those who practice yoga, and it is a display of generosity – a private contribution to the financial support of the teacher and their teachings.
When we experience a pure inner impulse caused by a higher purpose to help others, to express our unconditional gratefulness, it is called Dakshina. We are being guided by our feelings, and, in this case, the amount we give is irrelevant as long as we gain our own true Self.
