Krishna Valley Temple

The High Desert Gita School was founded in 1996, and this became the seed to build the Krishna Valley Temple (KVT) in Apple Valley. KVT is the only temple in the... Inland Empire built from the ground up, and it all started in 2004 when Megha Nayyar and other attendees of the Gita School had the vision of building this temple. Swami Satya Prakasha Nand Saraswati Ji worked closely with the board of trustees, architects, and builders so that KVT could truly reflect a traditional Hindu Temple. Manmohan Nayyar, MD, Founding Chairperson of Board of Trustees of KVT said, the KVT will play a valuable role in the ethos of the Hindu community. Multicultural center built on the 2.4-acre property with 250 dining table setup capacity, which the public can rent if they agreed with the KVT rules. The center is open to the public and people of all religious affiliations. Nirmala Murthy, MD, First President of KVT said the objective of KVT is to promote religious understanding based on peace, love, truth, and harmony, to promote friendship and goodwill among all people.

Dakshina (Spiritual Donations)

When we experience a pure inner impulse caused by a higher purpose to help others, to express our unconditional gratefulness, it is called Dakshina (Spiritual Donations). We are being guided by our feelings, and, in this case, the amount we give is irrelevant as long as we gain our own true Self.
