According to reports, the banquet facility which is used to be Woodland Hills Country Club having an 18-hole golf course, might be converted into a Hindu temple if approved by the Township Council.
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 upcoming 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.
