Temple Services Suggested Donations for Various Ceremonies
Please contact Acharya ji or Pandit ji for more information.
The HTCC Board of Trustees adopted a standard policy regarding performance of various religious and cultural ceremonies by either of the priests at the request of the Yajmans (sponsors). It is requested that the sponsors (Yajmans) donate the amount indicated below, or more, for specific ceremonies. Please pay the amount by a check made to Hindu Temple and give it to the priest who performed the ceremony. If you choose to pay cash, ask and get a proper receipt. The priest will give the money and copy of the receipt to our Treasurer.

* Please Note
1. Above suggested minimum donations are to be paid to Hindu Temple by check or credit card at the time of booking. If you want to pay by cash, please ask the priest for a receipt. Temple will send you a receipt for total donations made by you during the entire year, by following January 31, for charitable tax deduction purpose.
2. It is customary to give separately a Dakshinaa to the Priest at conclusion of the ceremony and get his blessings. Also, it is sugested that you give a mileage allowance to the priest, if you live far from temple. You can combine the two and give him one amount by cash or check.
3. For services performed at the temple, any money donated by you or other attendees, on Deities or in Aarati thali, goes to temple. At services performed off-site, it goes to the Priest.
