Background: Historically, the Nepalese religious tradition evolved through the amalgamation of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs. Hinduism and Buddhism share common values, tradition and shrine for worship and believe in peaceful co-existence, compassion, forgiveness and religious harmony. The people of Nepalese origin take immense pride in this religious heritage and traditions that significantly define the Nepalese way of life. In light of the growing Nepalese Canadian populace in Canada, particularly in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and its surrounding areas, it is prudent to communally own a place for congregating, practicing and celebrating Nepalese religious rites, festivities, and traditions.
THEREFORE, WE THE PEOPLE OF NEPALESE ORIGIN come together to establish a place of worship called the Shree Pashupatinath Mandir with the goal of advancing Hindu and Buddhist religious heritage and traditions in Canada and thereby enrich the Canadian multiculturalism.
Mission: Advancing Hindu and Buddhist religious heritage respecting the Canadian multiculturalism enshrined in the Canadian Multiculturalism Act.
