Mahwah Hindu Samaj Temple Guidelines for Prasad Offering:
We make this conscious demand completely of the feelings of the devotees. We also asked the priest to follow the guidelines detailed below. Lots of Prasad sweets, fruits and prepared foods that are brought as an offering are wasted because other devotees do not wish to receive them from priests for various reasons, such as food, health and sanitary. We feel terrible when we are compelled to throw it away because of health code and liability reasons. We are therefore requesting:
1) Bring only Almonds/Raisins/Cashews (dry-fruits) as offerings
2) If sweets and other perishable food including fruits are brought, please do the following: a)after it has been offered to the deity , take it to the kitchen and distribute it to your family and friends b) take the Prasad home. Please do not distribute any food in the Mandir area.
3) We request that instead of sweets and other perishable food, please make a donation either by cash or check deposited in the donation box. Checks written to Hindu Samaj is charitable tax deductible. If you deposit cash in a sealed envelope with your name, and address, we will send you a receipt. Such donations will help the temple to pay off mortgage which is over $4million.
We deeply appreciate your understanding, cooperation and generous donations.
