Shri Vallabh Nidhi UK

Welcome to Shri Vallabh Nidhi UK

Shri Vallabh Nidhi UK is a registered charity (Charity No: 277833). The administration and control of SVN UK and its assets are vested in a Board of Governors.

Keeping Hinduism as its prime focus, the charitable objects of SVN UK are to:

  • Advance the Hindu religion in accordance with the teaching of Shri Vallabh and in furtherance thereof to provide and maintain a temple for public religious worship and other religious charitable purposes.
  • Educate the public in the Hindu and English cultures.
  • Relieve poverty sickness and distress.
  • Promote religious welfare of Hindus in and furtherance thereof to provide guidance and advice.

In 1974, Shri Krishna Centre organized a 7 day sacred recital of Shrimad Bhagwat Gita. Shri Krishnashankar Shastriji was invited by Krishna Centre for the narration for the first time. Various halls and rooms were then rented for the gatherings in order to deliver comfort and space to the people. Inspired by the holy ambiance and spiritual devotion in the masses, Shastriji thought of building their own halls for the holy reciting as the Indian community did in East Africa.
It was in 1977 that this seed was germinated.

During his second trip, the celebration of fifth centenary was organized in reverent remembrance of Shrimad Vallabacharya. Such a prestigious occasion invited the idea of the grand establishment of temple which was further strengthened in July 1977 at the farewell function of Shri Shastriji at Ramanbhai Patel’s place in Chiswick when over 125 Vaishnav devotees from all over London proposed him to establish a Hindu temple in London.

The proposal of Shri Vallabh Nidhi was thus implemented under the name of Shri Vallabh Nidhi – U.K with Shastriji as its founder trustee. In order to strengthen the functioning of the institution, various office bearers and executives were appointed. The constitution was framed and the institution was registered as a charity by the trustees.

In the year of 1978, grand ceremony called Shri Yamuna Maharani Lotiji Mahotsave was organized which turned into a memorable celebration in Vaishnav Hindu community. The proposal for the installation of Sanatan Temple during the holy narration by Shastriji enhanced the spirit of celebration.

All the presents of the gathering was donated to the temple raising fund as was declared by Shastriji. The auspicious beginning was marked with the collection of £5,20,000 for the fund. The institution received registration as charity and was thus declared a charity institution.

In accordance with the above objects, the principal activity of SVN UK is the building up of the places of worship for the Hindu Community in the UK. To this end, SVN UK runs two temples, one in Ealing Road, Wembley, Middlesex and another in Whips Cross Road, London, E11.

SVN UK arranges periodic religious functions (Kathas and Saptas) and celebrates all the major festive days in the Hindu calendar.

In furtherance of the objects of SVN UK, the Board of Governors undertook a project to build the new temple in Wembley, Middlesex which was opened in May 2010. It has been built using ancient techniques based on Hindu scriptures. Famous spiritual leaders and forms of Gods from other religions are featured in the carvings

The temple covers 2.4 acres (9,700 sq m) on the Ealing Road and, at its highest point, is 66ft (20m) tall. Its bright sand-coloured walls stand out in stark contrast to the unassuming surroundings, thus spreading its spiritual aura.

The Faith

The Governors of Shri Vallabh Nidhi UK says that the temple provides a place of worship for all Hindus and welcome those of other faiths. Thus, the temple promotes a message of ‘big family’. The message being promoted is of Vasudev Kutumbakaum, a Hindu term to describe the world as one big family. Each morning and evening there are prayers at the temples in line with Hindu tradition.

hought of the Day

As written at Prashanthi Nilayam on 23 - 8 - 2012

Most people spend the lifetime allotted to them or earned by them in partaking of rich yet harmful foods and drink and indulge in glamorous, harmful pastimes. What a pathetic waste of precious stuff! Though belonging to the animal kingdom, human beings have much more in terms of physical, mental and moral abilities. They have the glorious chance of visualizing their identity with the Mystery that is manifested as this Universe. Human beings forgetting their nature to progress towards Godhood is akin to fire forgetting its capacity to burn or water its nature to wet. Every human being has the capacity to seek and secure the Truth of the Universe of which they are a part of; they have the wherewithal to train themselves in virtue, justice, love and sympathy to escape from the particular to the Universal.
- Baba
