Hi ,

I had un intentionally posted in one of my posts yday about Sai Baba Temple visit . Have received a few PM s regarding it .

To share it with those CDs who are not aware there is a small Sai Baba temple in Mississauga and Brampton peripehery ( Dixie and Midway Blvd ) which is good and people visit with a lot of dedication ...

Those who are interested can find more on the website sainathmandir dot org .... or the link and the address is 1365 Mid-way Blvd., Unit 23 Mississauga.

I have seen a number of related post on CD about asking details for a specific mandir.

Since religious beliefs vary from individual to individual - especially for Hindus, I am not criticising any of the CDs, but I always wonder what is the difference if a person goes to a Shiv temple or Krishna temple or a Laxmi temple?

Since I am not a religious person, it wouldn't matter to me which temple I go to. I can as well fold my hands and recite a "shlok" in a church. And I always have a problem when somebody asks me about worshiping cows and Hanuman and Ganesha (Thanks Apu!!:( ). I cannot go into a detailed explanation about intricacies of Hinduism.

I still think at least in Canada, temple serves as point of social interaction. A void that is filled partially when a person leaves the social network in India. But beyond that, does it really matter, which idol is in the Mandir??

Mods, if you think this message is inappropriate, please delete/lock it. This discussion may extend beyond the realm of this board, but I just felt like expressing my views.

The point is you have an affection towards a particular God and hence it is out of desire that you would want to visit a temple in which that God is revered. I can always sit in front of a tree, car, or in a church and pray to my God, but wouldn't I feel closer to God if I went to a temple where I would find his/her idol?

Why do we need idols? .. for the very same reason.

Well something unique about Sai Baba which drew me was that he was revered by people from both religions Hindus and Muslims equally . He stayed in a Masjid himself and preached equality ..... Other then Sai Baba's there are no idols here .... as I said maybe thats what makes the temple unque .
