Shree Lakshminarayan Temple
this joyous and auspicious occasion, as Hindus all over the
world celebrate Krishna Janmashtami, it gives me great
pleasure in conveying my heartiest felicitations to the
members and devotees of the Shree Lakshminarayan Temple.
As we take
on the new and varied challenges that confront us in this
Millennium, it is essential that we continue to recognize
the relevance of religion and the paramount role it plays in
the promotion of peace, love and harmony. In a
multi-cultural, multi-racial and multi-religious country
like Singapore, these attributes can never be
over-emphasized, and every effort must be made to constantly
enhance and uphold them.
in a world that otherwise seems obsessed with materialistic
gains, it is critical that the values, morals and cultural
traditions handed down by our forefathers are not lost but
passer on with Treat care and reverence, from one generation
to the next. Only then can we be assured that a world of
tranquility and harmony w-I, prevail for cur children and
regard, I am glad to note that the activities of the Shree Lakshminarayan Temple are focused
towards the fulfillment of such noble objectives and
conducted in a very commendable manner.
of the management & members of Singapore Indian Chamber of
Commerce & Industry (SICCI), I would like to congratulate
the management committee and devotees of Shree
Lakshminarayan Temple, for their selfless efforts and total
dedication towards service to the community as well as
