The religious activities and celebration of the various festivals are provided by IAO where the Hindu community from Oldham, Greater Manchester, the UK and abroad visit the Temple for darshan. It is for the spiritual advancement of every soul to receive the visions of the divine deities of the Temple.
In maintaining the services for the Sanatan Hindu followers the IAO organizes annual festivals, Yagnas, poojas and various events. Devotees come for darshan, prashad and learning more about forthcoming activities and how they can participate in pujas. By doing this the devotees are able to heighten their spiritual consciousness and re-energized themselves. During the very auspicious month of Purushottam we organize a Bhagvad Saptaha for the benefit of the devotees. Listening to the katha gives profound insight and vision into the true meaning of atma, the soul and liberation from the cycle of birth.
Annual events such as Navratri and yagna, Diwali and Annkut, Tulsi Vivah, Jalaram Jayanti, Shivratri, Holi, Ram Navmi, Hanuman Jayanti, Hindola Mohatsav, Janmashtami, Radhaashtami, Ganesh Chaturthi, to name a few are celebrated. The weekly bhajans are held on every Saturday evening at 7.00 to 9.00 pm in the temple.
A daily service which takes place at Mandir is the complete Sewa offered to devotees. Devotees select a day of their choice (this can be a birthday, wedding anniversary or other memorable day/date) and a deity to perform this Sewa for a one off payment of £251.00 . Every year on the selected memorable day Arti is offered to that devotee.
At present , out of the 365 days in the year 239 are still available for devotees .
We sincerely appreciate all the help and support from the devoted community and volunteers for their time and energy and of course everyone’s financial support. We strongly acknowledge that the Mandir is OURS and it is every ones duty to regularly bring all the family members to the Mandir and participate in other activities to maintain our religion and rich culture.
