Importance of Donating Money

The path of spirituality and to self-realisation is free but the cost of keeping one of Bhagwaan's spiritual abodes - the Sanatan Mandir Cultural Centre (SMCC) - is one that requires your ongoing financial support. Helping to cover the costs of the SMCC is the obvious reason for donating.

As with all our efforts and activities, donating money can be viewed from a spiritual viewpoint. At its root, money represents power and every time we exchange money, we exercise that power. Sanatan Dharma teaches us that the path to self-realisation and the Supreme Consciousness is best walked by clearing obstacles; power is one such stubborn obstacle.

By donating money, we are pushing ourselves away from acquiring power and closer towards self-realisation and the Supreme Consciousness.

How Your Donations Will Be Used

Sanatan Mandir Cultural Centre (SMCC) is run by dedicated volunteers, many of whom are founding members that have great stories to share of the earliest Gujarati migration to Canada. SMCC exists to serve the needs of the Gujarati-Hindu community in the Greater Toronto Area.

Your donations will be used to cover many different types of costs that include:

  • Promoting and executing new events that our devotees are seeking
  • Continuing to enhance our Baalvidyaalay capability
  • Preserving and promoting Gujarati heritage and culture in the form of language, dance, literature and practice of Sanatan Dharma
  • Providing resources to our Seniors community
  • Administration costs (e.g., building maintenance and upgrades to better meet your needs)
