About the Book
Temple management is not a new subject; however this is first time ever that a systematic book is written on that subject. Temples as infrastructure of Hindus and its management is vital for the community. They should therefore set benchmarks for temple activity, rituals and administration with a view to aim at a reasonable TSoR (the Temple Social Responsibility) and TSpR (Temple Spiritual Responsibility.) HSIM (Hindu Sanskriti Information Management), Interfaith Protocols and ToTD (the Tragedy of Triple Distillation) on account of inaccurate translations are subjects that Hindus need to take up seriously. With the better-informed gen-next, it is no more possible to carry on temple activity without any accountability. It is time the temple managers think seriously and provide responsible management to their temples. The title of this edition makes the objective and content of this volume obvious; however a few clarifications and ideas that led to its creation would prove useful to the reader.
