Happy New Year 2023.
It’s exciting to note that we are starting the year 2023 on a strong note of prosperity and promise. Year 2023 shows renewed devotee commitment to HTA. Great opportunity for constructive progress with the prospect of Kumbhabhishekam and a chance to complete long pending projects and embark up on the new ones to benefit the devotees.
With the stellar record of performing major pujas/yagnas of the spiritual magnitude of Koti Kumkumarchana, AtiRudram and Sri Yagam, HTA is established as the best Religious Institution in Southeast USA. We will strive to continue that tradition by planning religious events for health and prosperity of our communities in consultation with our learned priests.
Spiritual activities and praying should be a part of life that needs to be learned early in life. HTA Balavihar program gives children the necessary education and training to be prepared. We are working on programs and activities to be integrated with spiritual and religious practices to bring youth to our temple and make them an integral part of HTA community. Such interaction with spiritual education and training will benefit them for life. We will continue the initiatives like the Srinivasa Kalyanam that we performed at GA Tech during Deepavali 2022.
We are making necessary repairs for the temple gopurams in preparation for Kumbhabhishekam. Temple maintenance and upkeep is one of the key focus areas for the next 2 years. Improving the appearance, upkeep of the interior of temples along with facilities including Nitya Kalyani, Mahathi (Auditorium) and Akshaya Hall (Banquet Hall).
Devotee and Trustee contributions funding is critical for HTA to survive and thrive to provide the necessary spiritual experience and service to our community. Happy to announce that we stabilized financially and need to build further to strengthen the celebration of festivals, Karthika and Dhanurmasa Pujas and other Temple functions including Balaji and Shiva Brahmotsavam and Pavitrotsavam. HTA is by the devotees, for the devotees and of the devotees. Please Join us by volunteering, contributing, and participating in HTA services.
We thank the dedicated team of prior administration and volunteers. Looking forward to a successful 2023 with rejuvenated devotee participation and encouragement.
