Our Temple was founded on Aiya’s unique vision that all sincere devotees have the right to chant the Vedas, to chant Lalita Sahasranama, and to learn and perform the worship of the Divine Mother. In keeping with this vision, we encourage all visitors and volunteers to participate in the Temple rituals to whatever extent they are capable. It is our mission to help everyone learn about the worship of Sri Rajarajeswari as well as the beautiful and ancient Saiva culture.
As a Learning Temple, we believe that devotees receive maximum blessings when they are educated and engaged in their cultural and spiritual traditions. During programs, our pujaris often pause to explain what is happening or comment on how the puja or homam is benefiting us. In this way, we come to understand the greatness of Sanatana Dharma firsthand, and we can then pass on these noble traditions to our children.
