IMPORTANCE :
SAKTI (female deity) worship is becoming more popular everywhere. Our scriptures state that SAKTI is the main form of God in the era of Kali Yuga. SAKTI means energy. Hindus symbolize energy as female, and activation of energy as male. That is why the main form of Hindu idol is LINGA which has male and female body parts within it. The ARTHA- NAREESWARA, another form of idol, also has Lord Shiva and Goddess Sakti equally placed within it.

Sridurka is also a form of Sakti (Goddess of universal energy) and worshipped as the main Deity in this temple


SIGNIFICANCE:
Amidst of all Hindu Temples in Canada, Thurkeswaram has a unique and a very special religious feature. One and only temple in North America which is consecrated with highest ranked consecration rituals for 108 days and 33 Homas, performed by 50 priests from 6 countries. Ninety million mantras were chanted continuously for 3 years, first time in North America. In Hinduism, a Temple becomes energized by Rituals and Mantra.

Raja Gopuram (Temple Tower) Project to be completed in 2014

IMG_4591

Raja Gopuram means Royal entrance tower of the temple. It is a spiritually energized structure. Entering through the Raja Gopuram, scans the human body and equip it with proper channels to absorb the spiritual energy inside the temple. It is believed that just having a glimpse of the Raja Gopuram, even from far off, is equivalent to coming to the temple and offering prayers to the deities in the temple.

Let us build a magnificent Temple Tower as a tribute to all who make it possible and as a legacy for our generations.   WITH YOUR GREAT SUPPORT, THIS WILL BE A REALITY SOON
