NTHM's Resident Pundit, Pt. Mahendra Persad

Resident Pundit Mahendra Persad presides over NTHM's Sunday Services and observance of the major Hindu religious occasions. His discourses are well received by the devotees and several members have expressed their appreciation of Pundit Ji's discourses and how they look forward to the next Sunday Service. Here's is a copy of an e-mail sent to Pundit Ji from a family in the Congregation:

Subject: Diwali ki Shub Kamnaaiye

Pujiye Pundithji/Pyaare Bhaiya
May I take this opportunity to wish you and your lovely family a very
happy Diwali indeed. May the Lord grant your every wish and may all the successes in the world be yours to enjoy.
Thank you for all the knowledge that you impart with us in you
discourses. In your talk last night you mentioned how one diya can light up a thousand diyas and remove darkness. How wonderful it sounded and I like to say that symbolically You are that Diya that helps us remove that "Andhkaar". In the opening verses of the Ramayaan, I read this morning, Sant Tulsidaasji states that "Binu Satsangh vivek na hoyi" and now I realize how important it is for us to get that enlightenment. I know that your teachings are going to help me get closer to God and isn't that what we all want.
I really want to acknowledge and thank you for being that guiding
light. I want you to know that it is much appreciated by (name withheld) and myself. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers on this auspicious

Pundit Munelal Maharaj

In September 2002, visiting Pundit Munelal Ji of Trinidad inspired us all with his melodious bhajan singing and superb harmonium playing, his illustrative and sometimes light-hearted presentations embedded with several meaningful messages, and his magnetic yet humble personality. This weekend is a weekend we will always remember. For pictures of this memorable event, please click here.
