    A Mandir is a place of paramount peace, a place which inspires a higher way of life, a place which teaches us to respect all, and a place that teaches us to preserve values for generations to come. And when a true satpurush installs God within its wondrous walls, the Mandir comes alive with divinity.

    These qualities of the Mandir, and many others, were discussed by senior saints such as Pujya Viveksagar Swami, Pujya Doctor Swami, and Pujya Atmaswarup Swami in an assembly immediately following the Pratishtha.

    Several distinguished guests were present in the assembly to felicitate Swamishri and BAPS on the inauguration of the Mandir. Congressman Tom Delay, House Majority Leader of the 108th Congress praised the works of Swamishri by saying, "The combination of architectural skill and poetic spirit imbued in this Mandir honors not only the faith that it will serve but the community it will beautify." Among the other dignitaries were Fort Bend County Judge Robert Herbert, Consul General of India S.R. Tayal, and Parampujyapad Satguru Bodhinatha Veylan Swami of the Kauai Hindu Monastery.

    Kishores expressed their joy on this occasion through a dance praising Swamishri, after which Swamishri blessed the assembly. Swamishri mentioned that the Mandir would give inner peace to its visitors, and also increase their dharma. He explained that true dharma is living a life full of good intentions and actions, benefiting all living beings.
