Join the Dollar Seva program
Hanuman Setu Bandha!
as a member of the Hanuman Setu Bandha project - it is a
wonderful way to do seva for the temple while reducing your karma
by personally supporting Lord Hanuman's temple.
Imagine what we can achieve when everyone makes a
pledge of $1 or $2 or a few dollars a day. The vision and hope for this
temple is that it should be built by devotees - many, regular people,
coming together for this cause.
Lend your support to the Temple
through the Dollar Seva program. Choose a level of donation that is
right for your family whether it is $1 or more a day or perhaps $1 per
family member. All proceeds go directly towards the construction costs and support of Lord Hanuman's Temple.
Registered members will be recognized annually with a special Archana on Hanuman Jayanti.To make your pledge and for more details, please visit the Hanuman Setu Bandha / Dollar Seva
