HSS is saddened to hear about the death of Hindu spiritual leader, Swami Jagdishwarand, from New York. He was 70 years old.
Jagdishwarand ji, who started his religious discourses in 1960s and went on to establish Geeta Temple Ashram and Divya Dham in Queens, a Borough of New York City, died on Thursday,. The Geeta Temple was established in its own building in 1970-71 and is incorporated as a non-profit religious organization since 1973. As his congregation grew, the Indian-American Hindu community helped him to buy a new bigger site which became the permanent home of the temple.
We offer our condolences to his near and dear congregation and believe that he will always remain a living legend by means of continued work by his followers for the Hindu Society in New York.
