Not only is Sri Mandir the oldest Hindu temple in Australia, but Hinduism itself is one of the oldest religions in the world. It is not just a religion but rather a way of life.
Even though a majority of Hindus reside in India, it is practiced all over the world and there are many different philosophies and beliefs that are driven by different communities. But all these philosophies share a common belief as to the crux of their spirituality and faith. This is that a person’s purpose in life is to achieve dharma (a person’s true purpose or duty), kama (love and desire), artha(prosperity), and moksha(salvation). If a person continues to strive for these goals, he/ she will not stray from their path and their faith shall not waiver.
