Hindu temple plan approved in Florida
City Council of Greenacres in Southeast Florida has reportedly approved the site plan for a 3.1 acre Hindu temple on December 17.

THE TEMPLE will reportedly include a 4,898 square foot sanctuary and there are plans for another 3,510 square foot multi-purpose building connected to the sanctuary by a covered walkway. V.S. and Shanthi Sundaram, founders of the non-profit organisation behind this temple, reportedly plan to launch construction in spring and build the temple in 18 months.

Meanwhile, Hindu leader Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, applauded efforts of temple-project leaders to realize this Hindu temple complex and thanked the Greenacres City Council for the approval.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, further said that it was important to pass on Hindu spirituality, concepts and traditions to coming generations amidst so many distractions in the consumerist society and hoped that this new temple complex would focus in this direction. Zed stressed that instead of running after materialism; we should focus on inner search and realization of self and work towards achieving moksh (liberation), which was the goal of Hinduism.

City of Greenacres, located about five miles from Atlantic Ocean and incorporated in 1926, which calls itself as “A Great Place to Be”, has earned a “Tree City USA” designation for 20 consecutive years and was recognized as one of the 100 Best Communities for young people.
