There are at least 5000 Hindus living in Chelmsford itself and double the number in the Essex. But there is not even one Hindu Community Centre or a Mandir in Chelmsford or even in ESSEX. Chelmsford Hindu Society is working to fill this gap. The Society put an offer on the above property and the offer has been accepted.
Why Community Centre
A community centre helps community to strengthen its traditions and gives it a chance to exchange cultures. It’s a place to experience and learn meditation, yoga, spirituality, to teach our children about our values and practices, and to be at peace. A place to celebrate traditions and culture. Knowing each other’s culture brings better cohesion by accepting our diverse background. It gives confidence to the community members hence providing for better mental health
Lack of temple deprives Hindus not only of a regular place of worship & meditation but also causes hardship during life events such as Christening, Marriages, Prayer Meeting, upon death in family, Renewal of Vows etc.
Deities in Mandir
SaiBaba, Shiv Pariwaar with Ganeshji, Ram Sita Lakhsman & Hanuman, RadhaKrishna, Durga Maa, Murugan, Venkateshwara with Bhudevi & Shridevi, Navgraha
