Josh Schrei helped me understand G-O-D (Generator-Operator-Destroyer) concept of the divine that is so pervasive in the Vedic tradition/experience. Quantum Theology by Diarmuid O'Murchu and Josh Schrei article compliments the spiritual implications of the new physics. Thanks so much Josh Schrei.

●► Vishva Shakti Durga Mandir Ottawa in Canada

●► Vishva Shakti Durga Mandir Ottawa in Canada

Vishva Shakti Durga Mandir Association (VSDMA) was incorporated in 1997 as a non-profit organization to promote religious, social, and cultural activities of Indo-Canadians in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. The main purpose of this Hindu temple is to promote Hinduism in Canada and it's membership and congregation is growing day by day.

Vishva Shakti Durga Mandir is the newest temple in Ottawa-capital city region of Canada. It is located on 55 Clarey Av. in Glebe area off Bank Street. Devi Durga Puja is held there every day but special Sunday services are held from 10.30 AM to 1 PM.

A brief historical background:

Mata devotees, Mrs. Leena Shukla and the late Mrs. Rama Juneja, originally conceived the idea of having a Durga Mandir in the National Capital Region of Canada. Thus they became the two founding members of this temple. Inspired by their dedicated efforts, Mr. Surinder Sumra joined them and became a co-founder after a few months. The name Vishva Shakti Durga Mandir Association(VSDMA)for the temple was suggested by Maharaj ji of India.
Pandit Ravindra Narain Panday ji was approached by the members and requested to accept the reins of the temple’s priesthood. Pandit ji brought on the needed impetus and initiated the performing of various services in mid-December, 1997. These included regular Sunday services, other required services as well as services at devotee’s homes. The Community Center at Bellman Street remained the initial temporary location until May 1998.

With the expanding membership, the temple found a more suitable location in the Community Center at the corner of Bank Street and Riverside Drive, and moved there in June 1998. Due to ongoing renovations at the center, the temple had to move once again to yet another Community Center on Somerset Street East. The relentless efforts of the devotees finally succeeded in finding a permanent home for the temple at its present location, 55 Clary Avenue, Ottawa where the devotees reshaped an old church into a vibrant temple in September 2005. During the following year, the auspicious Sthapana of the Moorties of Maa Durga and Shiv Ling took place. Despite several moves and temporary locations, the services were never interrupted.
