Welcome to Sri Siva Satyanārāyana Swāmi Temple!

  You have reached the Website of Canada’s newest Temple - Sri Siva Satya Nārāyanaswāmi Temple, located in the beautiful city of Mississauga in Ontario! The Kumbabhishékam of the Temple took place, in a consecration ceremony lasting for five days, on November 29, 2009, with the blessings of Pujya Sri Ravi Shankar, followed by 42 days of Mandala Pujā. The temple is consecrated with the Murthis of Sri Saundra Nāyaki samédha Sri Kailāsanāthar (Sri Sivā), Sri Lakshmiramā (Sri Mahā Lakshmi) samédha Sri Satyanārāyana Swāmi, Sri Ganesā, Sri Muruga, Ashta Bhuja (8-handed) Sri Durgā, Sri Guruvayurappan, Sri Anjaneyā, Sri Kāla Bhairavar and Navagrahās. All the Vigrahams installed in the temple are very exquisitely carved . Please see the Deities page for additional information.

  The unique feature of the temple is the self-contained 'Vision of Vedās' teaching school for those keen on learning Sāstrā and Vedās. Sri Chandrasekara Gurukkal, the founder of the temple, is an accomplished Vedic scholar, Priest and Teacher who has created a number of Vedic students in the GTA over the past several years. While there are plenty of temples in Toronto, there are no learning centres where one can learn Vedic recitation, rituals and Sastrās. The Canada Siva Satyanārāyana Swāmi Temple fills this void, and "Vision of Vedās" school is being created with the aim of teaching Sastras. We invite you to experience the ancient teaching tradition of India that has been in vogue for thousands of years. The speciality of the temple is that it caters to the needs of every segment of worshippers - like Saivam (worship of Siva), Vaishnavam (worship of Vishnu), Sowram (worship of Sun), Ganapathyam (worship of Ganesa) and Sāktham (worship of Sakthi).

   We hope to present, through these Web pages, as much detail as possible about the temple and the Deities consecrated therein, daily Pujā schedules as well as happenings of important events through photographs. You will be able to plan your next visit as well as send E-mails to the temple with your questions or suggestions.

Sri Vaikunda Ekâdasi on December 31, 2014

Newsletters    We are delighted to inform you that we will be celebrating Sri Vaikunda Ekādasi on December 31, 2014 in a grand manner at our Temple. This day corresponds to the year Jayā and 16th day in the month of Mārghazhi, during Sukla Paksha Ekādasi period. It is believed that ‘Vaikunda Dwāram’ or ‘the gate to Lord's Inner Sanctum’ is opened on this day. The significance of Vaikunda Ekādasi is mentioned in the Padma Purānā, according to which Devas were unable to bear the tyranny of demon 'Muran' and approached Lord Siva, who directed them to Lord Vishnu. A battle ensued between Lord Vishnu and the demon and Lord Vishnu realized that a new weapon was needed to slay Muran. Lord Vishnu retired to a cave named for the Goddess Haimavati in Bhadrikashrama. When Muran tried to slay Lord Vishnu, who was sleeping, the female power that emerged from Lord Vishnu burned Muran to ashes with her glance. Vishnu, who was pleased, named the Goddess 'Ekādashi' and asked her to claim a boon. Ekadashi, instead, beseeched Vishnu that people who observed a fast on that day should be redeemed of their sins. According the to Vishnu Purānā, fasting on Vaikunda Ekādasi is equivalent to fasting on the remaining 23 Ekādasis of the year. Lord Vishnu declared that people who observed fasting and worshipped on Ekādasi, would attain Vaikundā. We plan on observing this event in a grand manner for Sri Satyanārāyana Swāmi at our Temple.
