Shri Nand Shiv Durga Mandir is a spiritual, social, cultural, educational & religious non-profit organization that was established in 1992. It was founded by Dr. Vijay Dhawan & Dr. Kamlesh Dhawan in loving memories of Late Shri Nand Lal Dhawan “Father of Dr. Vijay Dhawan” for the purpose of promoting the principles of Hindu Dharma(Sanatan Dharma).
Sanatan Dharma is based on the eternal truth, values and principles of life. This Dharma is also called Human Dharma because it belongs to the whole human race and it is based on the contemplation of such queries such as who am I? Where do I come from? What is the goal of my life? How can I achieve my goal in a righteous manner? Santan Dharma has two objectives: self realization or individual enlightenment and service to suffering humanity. Enlightenment is the main goal of life and can be achieved through yoga, meditation, prayer and related spiritual practices and God’s grace.
The concepts of Tapa, Seva, Sumiran and Meditation are embedded in this spiritual way of life that leads us to the path of Dharma(Righteousness).
Shri Nand Shiv Durga Mandir is open to all persons regardless of nationality, caste, color, creed, sect or race. All persons in the cosmos can travel this spiritual path.
The spiritual philosophy of Hindu Dharma recognizes every creature to be the expression of one supreme consciousness(God) and thus all human beings, animals and plants are potentially divine. We can realize our inherent divinity be sincere and regular meditation, awareness, prayer and sadhana which lead us to the center of our soul the limitless ocean of peace and consciousness and oneness of creation.
Our spiritual scriptures, The Vedas, The Upanishads, The Bhagawad Gita & The Ramayan are the intellectual sources of this foundation. Hinduism believes in one supreme God(Param Braham). It says that God is everywhere and is present in everything. The entire universe is the manifestation of one supreme being. Hindu view of God is expressed in the following revelation from Rig-Veda, the oldest Hindu scripture. “EKAM SAT VIPRA BAHUDHA VADANTI”. Truth is one, the wise ones call it by various names.
