                    A MESSAGE FROM THE COMMITTEE
It is hard to believe that we are almost at the end of the year. This year’s committee brought a
combination of experience and youth, vigilance and confidence, and most importantly, a sincere
passion and dedication to serve which made 2009 a very fruitful year.

We are delighted with some very successfully activities this year. We have completed many
projects aimed at enhancing the facility for broader use. Among them were roofing work, re-
painting the upper hallway, power-washing the downstairs floor, installation of a canopy at the back
entrance, and more. The temple grounds have been attractively maintained, assisted to a great
extent with enthusiastic participation was being admirably helped by many volunteers and HARI
school youth.

This year, with two scholarly priests, the temple doors are now open more hours and HARI priest
services were extended for your home seven days a week to fulfill all of your religious needs. We
are also thrilled to announce that we have successfully concluded obtaining green cards for the
priests and their families.

In addition to our regularly celebrated functions, we introduced new events such as goddess
Lakshmi puja and Shiva Abhishek during shravan month, Rakshabandhan and Yagnopavit
ceremony. We also invited renowned scholars and artists from here and abroad for religious
discourses and classical performances. We held an exciting and very entertaining social gathering,
India Fair, celebrating the HARI Anniversary. The success of these was evident by the large
attendance to these events.

We continued to focus on the long-term sustenance and growth of the organization through the
“HARI Trust Fund” efforts. HARI held its first Gala early this year attended by more than 250
patrons – it was a great evening enjoyed by all. The event was held to raise funds for the Trust
Fund with over $30,000 raised!

With excellent services provided by priests as well as a growing group of new volunteers for the
Executive Committee and the Board of Trustee positions, we are convinced that the HARI Temple
will continue to remain a vibrant presence serving the cultural and religious needs of the Hindu
community in this region.

This year we will celebrate “Diwali – Annual Day” on Saturday, October 17, 2009. This is an actual
day of Diwali which makes it a very special day of celebration for HARI. Please plan to attend and
enjoy the function and seek the blessings of Lord Rama for “Good Health, Peace, and Prosperity.”

                                        Yours in service,
Mr. Janak Amin                                                            Mr. Pallav Bhonde

                         HARI Trust Fund…
            Providing Growth, Financial Safety and Stability
Hindu American Religious Institute “HARI” has been
blessed with a congregation that has supported it
unstintingly since the inception in 1975. That support
has led to one of the most prominent Hindu landmarks in
the capital of Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We thank
the founders and senior members of HARI congregation
for their vision and commitment.

This legacy must now be nurtured and preserved for
future generations. In 2004, the Board of trustees had
initiated a “HARI Long Term Self Sufficiency” initiative. In
2005, “HARI Trust Fund (HTF) Steering Committee” was
formed, which developed a strategy and an action plan.
In 2006, an agreement was signed with “The Foundation
for Enhancing Communities” to manage the funds for
HARI. HTF, being an Endowment fund, the principal is
preserved. Only the earnings is used based on the need of the Temple and the Board of Trustees approval.
Under Donor advised funds, Donors, have a choice of naming the donation and say in as to how and where
the funds can be used.

                                  Symbolism in Hinduism
                                      by Mrs. Lakshmi Shrikantia

Hinduism is often labeled as a religion of thousand gods. This misunderstanding arises when we
fail to grasp the symbolism of the religion. Supreme Reality (Bramhan) as we all know is formless
and these different aspects of one reality are symbolized by the many gods and goddesses. For
example, Brahma is that reality in its role as creator of the universe; in Vishnu it is seen as the
preserver and the upholder of the universe; and in Shiva that same reality is viewed as the
principle of transcendence-destroyer of evil. These are the Trimurti, the ' three forms,' and they
are not so much different gods as different ways of looking at the same God. Each emphasizes a
particular aspect or function of the one reality. "Ekam sat vipraha bahudha vadanti" or "Truth is
One, the wise call it by many names." The forms are many, the reality is one; the principle is very
deeply rooted in Hindu thought, and was stated at the very outset in the Rg Veda: “The Supreme
Being has no form at all and yet is inherent in all forms.” Idol worship is a tool for harnessing the
eye and mind on God. The Vishnu Samhita (ch 29, v 55-7) an ancient ritual text explains idol
worship                                                                                           as:

"Without a form how can God be mediated upon? If He is without any form, where will the mind fix
itself? When there is nothing for the mind to attach to, it will slip away from meditation or will glide
into a state of slumber. Therefore the wise will meditate on some form, remembering, however,
that the form is a superimposition and not a reality." Images of God are not necessarily idols. We
do not actually worship the statues, icons, or symbols themselves, but rather use the images as a
point of focus for devotion.
"Aham Brahm asmi (I am Bramh/the spirit or essence of everything)," "Tat twam asi (Thou art
that/Bramh alone exists and is the essence of everything), "Aham sa (I am He (Bramh)/an
individual is a soul wrapped up in a physical body),"? Since the unenlightened mind hasn't the
capacity to perceive these statements as proceeding from the ultimate refinement of
consciousness. The teachings of the Vedas and Upanishads had to be clothed in symbolism, and
presented in allegories. According to the Bhagavad Gita, even those who worship other gods
(anya-devatah), ancestral deities, elemental powers, if they do so with faith, then their faith is
justified, for the Divine accepts every form conceived by the worshipper.
