Holy Thirukkural

'Humility and pleasant words are the jewels That adorn a man; there are none other.
If a man seeks good works while speaking sweet words, His virtues will wax and his vices wane...'



Welcome to our temple's website. Amongst the many Challenges we face as Tamilians in South Africa, trying to demystify our religion is one of the most difficult.

Unfortunately we are a very small community and it is important that we make a significant contribution to our community, as well as our country. Tamil culture is a culture of great antiquity and it has made, and will continue to make, a rich contribution to world civilization.

That is not to say, Tamils have not gained, and continue to gain, by their interaction with other people and other cultures. This is where our children, grand-children and future generations are going to take shape. Our children ought to be the torch bearers and who can learn from our very strong background from which we come.

The mission and motivation behind this website is for the sharing of information regarding the Tamil culture and religion. In addition this site will allow you to direct contact between the Guru of Lenz Shree, the Tamil Community and the world. There is a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation that exists between these various dimensions and we hope to bridge this enormous gap.

This site will also be used to created awareness regarding events hosted at the temple as well as the significance of the event. This also allows you the opportunity to raise any questions, suggestions or concerns you may have, kindly submit them on the contact us page.

Be proud to be a part of this journey, what unites us is far, far greater than what divides us - so let us join hands and work together.
