Dear devotees,

Hari OM

Happy New Year and blessings from Sri Lord Venkateswara Swamy and Sri Lord Rama Lingeshwara Swamy.

2017 was a very blissful and fruitful year for HTA and our community. HTA celebrated Rajatotsavam in May 2017 for Balaji and Durga Prathistapana with 19 priests. So many volunteers worked unbelievably hard to make this event successful. We also celebrated Maharudra Yagam with Lalitha Sahasra Nama Homam in November. This event was a grand success because of the strong efforts from both our devotees and our volunteers. God bless you all.

As we continue to ensure the Temple is a great venue for community worship the HTA board of trustees has decided to implement a dress code for HTA visitors. Going forward, Indian clothing will be the preferred attire – in addition, clothing such as shorts, athletic gear, torn jeans, and short dresses (e.g., shorter than knee length) will not be permitted. I would like to request all devotees to spread the word in making sure friends and family worship in appropriate attire. The temple continues to offer Bala Vihar, Yoga, dance classes, language and spiritual education classes. Please consider enrolling your children and grandchildren in any of these classes as these skills are defining elements of our culture.

Our endowment funds are doing well due to the strength of the financial markets as well as generous contributions from our devotees. Key areas of expenditure worth noting include:

  • Community Support and Outreach:
    • HTA provided shelter to hurricane victims in need
    • HTA awarded scholarships for students in October
    • HTA helped build a home for Habitat for Humanity
    • HTA assisted people who are in dire need for health and financial aid

  • Temple Security and Perimeter Wall Efforts: In order to continue to ensure visitors to our Temple a safe and peaceful experience, HTA has plans for the construction of a perimeter wall in early 2018. We welcome your donations for this critical project.

We appreciate your continued support and involvement for so many years and look forward to working with all of you for years to come. On behalf of the Board of Trustees & Executive Committee, we would like to wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018

Best Regards,
Kusuma Kotte
President, HTA

May Sri Venkateswara Swami and Sri RamaLingeswara Swami Bless you and your family!!!!
