Bharatiya Temple of NWI, Merrillville, Indiana

 Coming together is a beginning, Keeping together is Progress and Working together is SUCCESS..Anon    
Indian American Cultural Center of Northwest Indiana (IACC) took a key step towards centers “A dream becoming a reality”. The moment they planned to buy the land they felt ambiance at the site that “This site is meant to be a place for us to preserve, nourish and advance our Indian culture, heritage, religious values and social values.” The center acquired 14 acres of land on March 1999. On an auspicious day May 6th 2000 we performed Bhoomi Pooja and broke ground for construction to begin. This is a great day as we broke ground and began a process of building a living congregation through the contributions of this community. I hope that through the years the grandchildren and their children will come here to learn the richness of the past. For so many of us who have toiled arm in arm for countless hours over almost two decades to realize our dream of building a cultural center in our area, this day marks dawn of the new era. We performed Vastu pooja on October 2001, and opened the center on March 9th 2002. Despite facing multiple challenges at the construction site, and under leadership of few community members the center was successfully completed.

We mark a key milestone as we turn the page in the next chapter of expansion. We planned for expansion of the existing building and a shrine, which ended up into another vision of courage to give the community a priceless legacy in the form of a truly magnificent Temple. June 9th 2009 we broke ground to build our Temple and the expansion of our existing building.

We named our Temple as Bharatiya Temple of NWI. This is a historic landmark time for the Indian Community of Northwest Indiana, as we are celebrating the Grand opening of our Temple – Bharatiya Temple of NWI. Maha Kumbhabhishekam celebrations of the Temple are scheduled for June 18th – 20th & Jain Prathistha Mahotsav for July 17th 2010. We are honoured to invite you to be part of this historic event. This will be the first Temple of its kind in the great State of Indiana. We, as a community are grateful to the Lord for bestowing upon us this wonderful opportunity to build this Temple for HIM. We are proud of being part of this great legacy, which will be passed on to generations to come.

Gokulam is where lord Krishna’s magical childhood days were spent. It was here that his divine powers came to light.
“Every child has that spark of divinity within.” –Swami Vivekananda
Balagokulam is a forum for children to discover and manifest that divinity. It will enable Hindu children in the US to appreciate their cultural roots and learn Hindu values. This is done through games, yoga, stories, bhajans, shlokas, arts and crafts. Balagokulam and Chetna (Youth) programs are of 90 minutes duration that includes various activities related to physical, intellectual and spiritual needs. We have a dedicated team of teachers who are willing to work with and teach our children. Balgokulam is a HTCI sponsored program. The child needs to be registered for Balagokulam and the registration form is available here. The parents of Balagokulam students must be members of HTCI and the membership form is can be downloaded from here.
Balagokulam classes are conducted in five groups, Grades – KG (Druv), 1st (Eklavya), 2nd (Prahalad), 3rd and 4th (Arjun), and 5th and 6th (Krishna). The Chetana classes are for children in Grade 7 and above. Balagokulam classes are held every Sunday from 10:30 to Noon. The Chetana Youth Classes only meet 2nd and 4th Sundays (10:30-noon).

Every year the Balagokulam (for children) and Chetna classes are conducted based on a theme. The theme for this year is “Seva”. Using the links shown below, you can download the detailed flyers about Balgokulam, and Chetna programs and the calendar of events for this year.

Also, the temple is offering Hindi classes as well - conducted by Anita Mahesh Gupta. You can reach her at 317-291-0718.

SaFoster love in your hearts and redeem your lives!
What is it that men should acquire today? It is the broadening of the heart so that it may be filled with all-embracing love. Only then the sense of spiritual oneness of all mankind can be
experienced. Out of that sense of unity will be born the love of God. This love will generate pure bliss in the heart that is boundless, indescribable and everlasting. For all forms of bliss, love is the source. A heart without love is like a barren land. - Baba
