Exeter Hindu Temple Trust




The Temple provides a spectrum of approaches to God. Since the human body itself is veritably a temple, Deities within can be invoked and worshipped. One has only to delve deep within to reach God who dwells in each one of us. The path of Bhakti or Devotion is an easier method. Worship of a Deity or Deities of one's choice "Ishta Devata," helps the devotees to focus their attention and relate to God. The consecrated Vighrahas or idols, when worshipped continuously, acquire a capacity to respond. They also glorify specific attributes of the Absolute.
