He applauded these community groups for their contribution to society and called upon them to work together for a greater cause while working within their own spheres. He quoted Hindu scriptures and poets to explain the need for unity in diversity. He emphasised that in today’s world of turmoil and violence, Hindu philosophy can play a vital role in bringing peace and prosperity for humankind. Hindus have never believed in domination of others as they believes that all paths of spirituality are correct in their own ways and we need to respect each other rather than just “tolerate”

The temple will have other Murti’s alongside Bapa, these will include Shree Ganesh, Ram Parivar, Radha Krishna, Shiv Parvati, Shivling, Hanumanji & Amba Maa. The community centre will consist of modern facilities including a well-equipped commercial kitchen, community hall, class rooms & performance stage to promote cultural activities.
