BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Temple Indian Wedding By Aaroneye Photography

 

 

The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir: California’s well  Known Indian Temple

Meera and Vikas’s wedding was awesome  at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir.  This temple is located in Chino Hills California. Meera’s stunning traditional Indian red wedding dress and Vikas’ handsome complementary garb perfectly matched the visions of majesty, love, peace, and harmony of the temple, as it is beautifully described on its website. There was magnificent colors, flowers and spirals that reach for the sky. If you’re planning a traditional Hindu wedding, visit this temple!

Truly Magnificent

This BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir temple in Chino Hills reflects its kindred sites around the world.  The USA itself houses more than 60 of these Mandirs or ‘Houses of God’ and they are open to all faiths, welcoming people into – and reaching out to become a vital part of – the community through the following activities:

  • First, becoming involved in the welfare of the youth.  They have diversified activities that guide the youngsters back to God via cultural presentations, religious practices, and even language training.  Weddings such as that of Meera’s and Vikas’s are perfect examples of the temple being a place of ‘love, peace, and harmony.’
  • Second, nurturing a morally, spiritually, and socially strong society.  The Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha, the organization behind the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, involves themselves actively in this aim.  Right after 9/11, they deployed doctors and volunteers to provide immediate relief as well as pool together resources to give financial aid.  The family of Meera and Vikas were engaged in these activities themselves and it warms my heart to see this love of family and community radiating in their smiles!
  • Third, their love for the environment.  The temple structures, its grounds and gardens are a sight to see!  They convey balance, rhythm, and harmony in their lines and designs.  You can’t help but be calm and at peace when in their temple grounds!

A Fascinating Faith

This BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir temple is a reverent manifestation of the Swaminarayan faith, a 200-year old socio-spiritual organization, which counts more than a million followers around the world!  Meera and Vikas and their families are beautiful representatives of their faith!  True joy and love emanates from their beings as seen in the images I’ve captured in their wedding: smiles that come from the soul, the holiness felt from their prayers, and the happiness that embrace the event were manifested!  No wonder the organization flourishes!

It’s awesome to be a part of this wonderful opportunity to cover a wedding in  BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. Can’t wait for the next one!
