Ordaining New Priests In Vibrant Fiji

Wednesday, 25 Augest, 2010

FIJI, : About 40 priests of the Shree Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji were given certificates indicating their ordination yesterday.

Sabha General Secretary, Vijendra Prakash, priests are be well trained before they went out into communities to perform prayers. All the priests fcome under the Shree Sanatan Dharm Brahman Purohit Sabha of Fiji, the governing body of all Hindu priests in the country. Mr Prakash said the idea was to get all priests under one roof. “Our next step will be getting these priests registered as Hindu marriage officers and Justice of Peace,” he said.

The ceremony started with a march from Gyan Mandir to Shiv Mandir in Samabula. The priests were also given identification cards. The youngest in the lot is 18-years-old and the oldest is 55-years-old.

Mr Prakash said the right people with the right training are needed as they would be leading and teaching people in communities.
