Maha Rudra Dev Mandir (MRDM) was created to provide a place of worship for our Hindu community. This was a dream of many Hindus in the Toronto area, especially the youth community. Our religious practices were slowing dying because the youth community found it very difficult to read and interpret our religious books that were written in Sanskrit. There were not many Hindu priests who could expound the teachings of our religion in a manner in which the youth community could understand. The members of Maha Rudra Dev Mandir saw the need to reach out to our youth community and provide support so as to help them to understand and accept the teachings of our great religion. We approached a young and very enterprising Hindu priest, Pundit Ravi Sharma, to assist us in this mission. Pundit Sharma graciously agreed to volunteer his service and help us in this mission his our Spritual leader. Since our opening on August 15, 2014, the Mandir has been filled to capacity. The congregation is made up of 70% youths and 30% adults and elders. We commenced religious observances on August 15, 2014 with the installation of our Hindu dieties.
