Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me as I recognize the New Jersey Arya Samaj Mandir’s first annual special event, the “Arya Swaranjali”, which will take place on Sunday June 4, 2006 in Jersey City, New Jersey, my Congressional District.  The “Arya Swaranjali” will be a time when the New Jersey Arya/Hindu community will gather together to showcase the works of talented artists in order to raise awareness and resources for less fortunate children in the South American country of Guyana.

Arya Samaj, which means a Society of Noble People, is a global community of organizations whose mission, based on the ten Vedic principles, is to improve the physical, spiritual and social well-being of mankind.  The New Jersey Arya Samaj Mandir, incorporated in 1987, is an organization that provides cultural, educational, religious, charitable and social links between the Arya/Hindu immigrant community and the United States.

However, the New Jersey Arya Samaj community understands that “…to whom much is given, much is required…”  Under the leadership of Pandit Suresh N. Sugrim, the “Arya Swaranjali” will help Guyanese children who are unfortunately without parents.  Due to their beneficence, many orphans will be afforded an improved quality of life which includes better food and clothing, comprehensive education and full medical care.

Mr. Speaker, I applaud the New Jersey Arya Samaj Mandir, Inc. for their support of the Arya/Hindu community.  Specifically, I would like to commend them on the “Arya Swaranjali” and the good works they will achieve through this event.  I am proud to have them in my Congressional district and wish their organization never-ending success in their future endeavors.
