Why seVak?

seVak - A Volunteer Drive by HTCC

SErVice to mAnKind - SErVice to All Knowing

Ever wonder how everything is always in its place at the temple? Well, we may not conciously realize it, but what we sometimes take for granted is the fruitful result of numerous hours of selfless service by our seVaks.

Our Temple is run by those who have devoted countless volunteer hours in temple doing Seva. As our community has expanded, so has our need for seVaks. By volunteering your time and effort you can make a significant difference to the temple.

The Religious, Food, Cultural, Maintenance, Public Relations and Youth committees are some of the areas where volunteers are needed.

  •     Volunteering helps meet people and make new like minded friends;
  •     Helps the temple increase and improve services; and
  •     Brings a feeling of satisfaction and inner peace in the individual.

 

What can you do?

It depends upon what would you like to do and what you enjoy doing.

  •     Organize Youth programs and Fun activities for little kids
  •     Prepare and / or serve Prasad? Facilitating maintenance activities in temple
  •     Decorate temple during festivities
  •     Maintaining cleanliness in the temple
  •     Help with crowd control during major festivals
  •     Technology Savvy? We need help with monthly newsletter and other automation efforts
  •     Teach Hindi and other regional languages

 

Make a difference by volunteering only a few hours a week / month!

Alternatively, tell us how much time you can devote to the temple and we will try to match up the opportunity for you. Make it a friend and family activity by volunteering as a group or for your favorite festivals.

SHLOKA

When I Asked God for Happiness
He Showed Me Some Unhappy People

When I Asked God for Brain & Brawn
He Gave Me Puzzles in Life to Solve

When I Asked God for Strength
He Gave Me Difficult Situations to Face

When I Asked God for Wealth
He Showed Me How to Work Hard

When I Asked God for Favors
He Showed Me Opportunities to Work Hard

When I Asked God for Peace
He Showed Me How to Help Others

God Gave Me Nothing I Wanted
He Gave Me Everything I Needed

"Tribhirgunamayairbhavairebhih Sarvamidam Jagat
Mohitam Nabhijanati Mamebhyah Paramavyayam"

The whole world is engrossed in the three elements of Satva, Raja, and Tama. This is the reason, people don't recognize the Eternal God who is beyond them.
