Norway’s Hindu temple offers matchmaking

August 27,2014  IST


A Hindu temple in Norway offers a matchmaking service for the

Scandinavian Hindu community.

“Those who may be interested to find his/her life partner or

parents interested to find bride or groom for their children can register

themselves in our register of match finding”, website of Sanatan Mandir Sabha

Hindu Temple of Slemmestad (Norway) states.

“Matrimonial Personal Data” asked in the registration form,

besides other information, includes hobbies, appearance (in addition to photograph)

and family information. Registration and service charges are 500 Norwegian krone

(about $81).

In addition to this matrimonial service, this Hindu temple

also offers various other services in all of Scandinavia, including first

haircut of the child known as “mundan”.

Meanwhile, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a

statement in Nevada (USA) today, commended efforts of temple management and

area community for realizing this Hindu temple complex.

Rajan 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 Scandinavian temple would help 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.

One of the aims of Sanatan Mandir Sabha Norway, first

registered in 1988, is 'to promote piece & harmony in the Norwegian

society'. Harkesh Sharma, Harvinder Prashar and Vijay K. Sangar are

President, Vice President and Secretary respectively of the temple Executive

Committee; while K.R.Mishra is the Priest.

Slemmestad, west of Oslo, is a village on the Oslofjord in

Royken municipality. It is home to a Cement Museum and Norwegian female

footballer Melissa Wiik was born here.
