England, Feb 25, 2017: Hindus of Chelmsford are really passionate about Hinduism as a religion and have come together to form Chelmsford Hindu Society in Chelmsford, England. They believe firmly in the values and creeds of Hindu religion, and their objective is to establish a sacred shrine in the vicinity so that it is approachable by the Hindu residents. It is observed that there are no Temples in the area and Hindus residing in the area find it difficult to travel up to 22 miles to visit one, hence the need to establish a temple.
Temples are a place of sanctity which houses positive energies. It sends out the cadence of ragas and mantras synchronized harmoniously. Chelmsford Hindu Society believes that omnipresence of God is not felt until the spirituality is not awakened, and for that reason, followers come to temples in search of tranquility. Promoting Hindu ethos, cultural and spirituality is one of the key concerns for these people.
The Hindu society has been reportedly holding events at Little Waltham Memorial Hall. The events included prayers, recitations, children activities and community lunch. The society is also seeking volunteer donations, and making an effort to register with Charity Commission for England and Wales.
Rajan Zed, the President of Universal Society of Hinduism, cited that it was impertinent to pass on Hindu spirituality, concepts and traditions to the coming generations amidst a myriad of distractions in the consumerist society and hoped that the temple would help in inculcating a holy and spiritual sense in people. Zed further stressed by saying that, we all should focus on driving an urge to create inner peace within oneself and work towards attaining moksha (freedom of soul) by the virtue of karma.
Another belief of Hinduism preaches that people come to the temple to unite with the almighty in the truest sense.
