MINNESOTA, USA, May 2, 2013 (Farmington Independent): If things work out the way Satya would like them to, Farmington may soon be a center of Hindu culture in Minnesota. Satya Balroop is the treasurer of a group called Minnesota Hindu Milan Mandir, which has been in the city for nearly a year now, housed in a building that for many years was home to Farmington Lutheran Church. Balroop helped found Minnesota Hindu Milan Mandir, a local branch of an international organization founded in India in 1917, when she moved to the state in 2002. Minnesota Hindu Milan Mandir hosts regular services on Sundays. But it is also a kind of cultural center, hosting both religious services and community events. On May 4, there will be a fundraising concert featuring local and national Indian musicians, food and information. The public is invited to attend. "We're hoping to get the word out to Hindus to come forward," Balroop said. "You'd be amazed to see how many caucasians are really embracing this type of lifestyle and wanting to know more about it and even practice it in their daily lives. Especially yoga and meditation."Balroop hopes to start making changes soon.She would like to bring in two monks to serve the community from the building, and she would like to make Minnesota Hindu Milan Mandir much more a part of Farmington. Changes will come, Balroop said, as time and money allow.
