Hindu Temples in the US have historically served as both cultural and religious centers for their communities. Ritual services have been prioritized based on the desires of the diasporic community. Ritual performance is the specialism of Brahmins and Pandits. Brahmanic priests may engage in teachings but their sacred knowledge serves ritual performance in public Temples and in private homes. Moving forward, Temple managers are considering how to amplify affiliation with American born Hindus who have a very different relationship with their spiritual heritage and how to support their aging constituencies. Hindu chaplaincy offers solutions to these critical issues. Mr. Mathur is a long-time leader at the Hindu Temple of Rochester who has professional clinical pastoral education training. Based on his training, and his work at the hospitals and the Hindu Temple of Rochester, he presents case studies that demonstrate the benefits of chaplaincy practices for Hindu Temple communities and argues for enhancing it to the next level by building Temple-based trained chaplaincy support teams.
