England, Feb 25, 2017: Hindus of Chelmsford are really passionate about Hinduism as a religion and have come together to form Chelmsford Hindu Society in Chelmsford, England. They believe firmly in the values and creeds of Hindu religion, and their objective is to establish a sacred shrine in the vicinity so that it is approachable by the Hindu residents. It is observed that there are no Temples in the area and Hindus residing in the area find it difficult to travel up to 22 miles to visit one, hence the need to establish a temple.

Temples are a place of sanctity which houses positive energies. It sends out the cadence of ragas and mantras synchronized harmoniously. Chelmsford Hindu Society believes that omnipresence of God is not felt until the spirituality is not awakened, and for that reason, followers come to temples in search of tranquility. Promoting Hindu ethos, cultural and spirituality is one of the key concerns for these people.

The Hindu society has been reportedly holding events at Little Waltham Memorial Hall. The events included prayers, recitations, children activities and community lunch. The society is also seeking volunteer donations, and making an effort to register with Charity Commission for England and Wales.

Rajan Zed, the President of Universal Society of Hinduism, cited that it was impertinent to pass on Hindu spirituality, concepts and traditions to the coming generations amidst a myriad of distractions in the consumerist society and hoped that the temple would help in inculcating a holy and spiritual sense in people. Zed further stressed by saying that, we all should focus on driving an urge to create inner peace within oneself and work towards attaining moksha (freedom of soul) by the virtue of karma.

Another belief of Hinduism preaches that people come to the temple to unite with the almighty in the truest sense.

Archaeological Sites Dating Back Thousands of Years Found Around Britain, Thanks to the Heat

The archaeologists are mapping the sites to determine the significance of the remains beneath and how best to protect them.

Britain’s hottest summer in decades has revealed cropmarks across the country showing the archaeological sites of Iron Age settlements, Roman farms and even Neolithic monuments dating back thousands of years, archaeologists said Wednesday.

Cropmarks — patterns of shading in crops and grass seen most clearly from the air — form faster in hot weather as the fields dry out, making this summer’s heat wave ideal for discovering such sites.

Archaeologists at the public body Historic England have been making the most of the hot weather to look for patterns revealing the ancient sites buried below, from Yorkshire in the north down to Cornwall in the southwest.

“We’ve discovered hundreds of new sites this year spanning about 6,000 years of England’s history,” said Damian Grady, aerial reconnaissance manager at Historic England.

“Each new site is interesting in itself, but the fact we’re finding so many sites over such a large area is filling in a lot of gaps in knowledge about how people lived and farmed and managed the landscape in the past,” he said.

The archaeologists are mapping the sites to determine the significance of the remains beneath and how best to protect them. While some may be significant enough to merit national protection from development, local authorities or farmers may be left to decide what to do at other sites.

“We’ll hopefully get the help of farmers to help protect some of these undesignated sites,” Grady said. (VOA)
