BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandirs, in Lilburn, Celebrated Earth hour by turning off the Lights

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandirs, in Lilburn, Celebrated Earth hour by turning off the Lights

Lilburn, Ga--  BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandirs across North America, including the one in Lilburn, commemorated Earth Hour by switching off all lights within the complex at 8:30 pm on Saturday, March 26, 2011.

“We performed the evening rituals inside the Mandir by candlelight,” said local volunteer Sandip Trivedi. “As a global citizen, I felt good participating in an event that marks our commitment to sustaining the environment.”

His wife, Niketa Trivedi, could be heard nearby, explaining to a group of curious young children why she was placing candles across the Mandir’s inner sanctum.

“It’s to celebrate Earth Hour,” she explained to them. “When we turn off the lights, we save energy. This is good for our planet, and we have to help in any way we can.”
