GHHF Help the NEEDY Hindu Priests to Feed their Families. Some of them are begging. Please Support them

Since the Lockdown due to the fear of spreading Coronavirus, all the Hindu Temples are closed. Now, many Pujaris / Hindu Temple priests are having a hard time meeting their basic needs. Many of them do not have any salaries either from the government of the private Temples. Most of them do not have enough savings to pay their rent and electricity. Furthermore, many private temples do not have enough income to pay their salaries. Consequently,many Pujaris do not have enough resources to meet their daily expenses to provide meals to their families. Recently, newspapers wrote about some priests begging on the streets as they could not provide meals for the family. That news pained so many people and some organizations are helping them financially. They are facing a grim and grave predicament.

                This national lockdown has negative impact on the lives of the Priests, affecting their health, tarnishing their priestly status, and influencing their moral compass. They have been silently suffering unable to openly talk about their woes.

Hindu Priests/  Purohits/Pujaris / punditsplay a vital and irreplaceable role in the functioning and operation of Hindu Temples. They are the ones who went through a disciplined and rigorous training learning many scriptures and learning how to do pujas in the Temples as well as pujas related to all 16 samskaras as per our scriptures. They are the instigating and guiding force for many Hindus in terms of their living. They help the devotees to deal with personal problems, help them perform various pujas and channel them to spiritual path.

As we all know there is no Hindu Temple without a priest. They perform Nitya Pujas to the presiding deities on a daily basis. Priest are also responsible to do Archana to the devotees and offer Arthi when they visit the Temples. They are also called upon to perform naming ceremonies, Seemantham, Aksharabhyasam, sacred thread ceremony, wedding, and even the last rites.
