Transcript of Speech by Gautham Reddy at Edina Temple

The American Hindu Temple has become a vital center for the arts, education, and service work. It is here that traditional forms of music and dance can be performed, enjoyed, and passed on to future generations. Well-intentioned individuals can gather to embark on projects of good will and social justice. The temple is an important cultural resource for our community, not only for youth but for adults as well. Through yoga, meditation classes, and spiritual discourses, it offers us all the opportunity to engage with our cultural heritage in a deeper, more significant way.
