Priest’s Message

Welcome to

Pt. Harihar Adhikari Shastri Ji at Shree Laxmi Narayan Mandir

Pt Harihar Shastri         Dharmenha hante byadhi; Dharmenha hante graha

Dharmenha jayete dharmoh; Dharmenha jayete dhanam

Righteousness brings good health; Righteousness eradicates unfavourable situations
Righteousness bears good result; and Righteous means enables you to acquire Righteous wealth
Pt Harihar Adhikari Shastri Ji is the newly appointed Resident Priest of Shree Laxmi Narayan Mandir, Burbank, Brisbane. Prior to coming to Brisbane Pundit Ji was the head priest of Gaori Shankar Mandir, N D Pritampura, Delhi. Being the co-founder of this Mandir, he played an important role from its inception to the completion and his expertise was utilitsed for the establishment of 12 (twelve) other Temples in India. His passion in the spiritual field has made him most sought after and we are pleased to have Pundit Ji as our Resident Priest.
Pundit Ji has made a significant contribution to Sanatan Dharma by providing training to approximately 500 students who are now providing their services as prominent Priests to many Temples within India. He very strongly believes that all Hindus should follow their Dharma and disregard negativity that comes as obstacles and hurdles. At the end of the day it is a person’s Karma that makes him what he is through his deeds.  His philosophy is “Dharma ko dharan karte huye satya ko apnaye” (follow your religion through truthful means).
Pundit Ji is a scholar of Sanskrit and has excellent knowledge of rituals & ceremonies and is very versed with mantras and incorporates these into life practices. There are 16 (sixteen) sanskars that Hindus observe and Pundit Ji is able to perform all of these sanskars very ably.  He is also an expert in astrology and well respected amongst the astrologers. The weekly sermons narrated by Pundit Ji at Shree Laxmi Narayan Mandir are not stories but how to live as a virtuous, noble and a religious person – the way of Life one should adopt.
Shree Laxmi Narayan Mandir is very fortunate to have the likes of Pt Harihar Adhikari Shastri Ji to serve this Temple.  Pundit Ji is very much for furthering the objectives and the scientific approach of Hinduism and has lots of plans in mind for the people of Brisbane. There are plans to teach Sanskrit, proper recital of Mantras, the correct procedures and processes for rituals and teaching of our Sanskars (sacraments).
Pundit Ji’s other community services will be booked through the Executive Committee.
Shree Laxmi Narayan Mandir will be celebrating NAVARATRI from 5 October – 13 October 2013 and the pracharak will be Pundit Hari Har Adhikari Shastri Ji. He is looking forward to serving the people of Brisbane with humility, politeness, sincerity, loyalty and patience. Pundit Ji is dedicated to his service and having the right approach to everything.

Everyone is welcome!
