Namaste All

It is with great regret but with paramount safety in mind for the devotees, we as the Temple committee are having to take steps to suspend in-person functions at the Temple for the foreseeable future.

Our optimism was high that people would not catch Covid during functions at the Temple. However, having celebrated Navratri at the Temple, a number of cases have come to the fore, both for some devotees and committee members.

We have some major functions upcoming in our diary where there will be gatherings of a lot of people in a confined space. With the number of Covid cases on the rise within our community, a drastic step is now being taken to suspend all in-person functions. The Temple will remain open for individual prayers and a one way system introduced like what we had during the lock-down period.

What this means is that:

1. Prayers of Karva Chowth, like last year, will be conducted online. You can still come and offer your individual prayers at the Temple but the Karva Chowth pooja will be held online. Zoom details are below.
2. On Diwali day, the Temple will remain open 9am to 9pm for individual prayers and darshan but the evening Diwali fireworks will cancelled.
3. Chopda poojan will be done online.
4. On Annakot day, the Temple will remain open 9am to 9pm for individual prayers and darshan, but there will not be an evening function.
5. No activities where there is a mass gathering. Therefore Mataji Chownki, meeting of Elderly group, Jalaram Jayanti, Sai Baba Jayanti, Tulsi Vivah, etc... will be suspended.
6. Sunday group singing will also be suspended.
7. A one-way system will be re-introduced in the Temple.
8. Mask wearing in the Temple and hand-sanitising prior to entry will be mandatory.

We understand that this is a tough call to make, and the whole committee is unanimous in this decision. The safety and well-being of all our Devotees is paramount and we have to ensure that we stop the spread of Covid within our community. We need to ensure that the vulnerable within our community are kept safe.

Thank you for your understanding.
Vedic Society Committee
