ICCT Poshaka Parivar

Dharmo Rakshathi Rakshitaha!

Dharma protects those who protect it - Is the basis and foundation on which ICCT Poshaka Parivar program is devised. A program that aims to nurture the sense of family, belonging and connection between ICCT and our community members who supports (generously by various means) the progress and development of India Cultural Center and Temple, more importantly to bring the community of individuals who believe in upholding Sanatana Dharma.

As a community organization, we strongly believe that by bringing broader program where the main focus is to recognize the support, irrespective of form and nature, provided by everyone is important for the growth of ICCT as well as in serving the spiritual needs of the community through various services offered.

ICCT Board of Trustees recognizes and acknowledges that everyone who comes to visit serves a purpose and help support in a manner that makes the positive difference. Keeping that in  view, ICCT Poshaka Parivar is broadly categorized into the categories below to encompass everyone under this program.

Our humble goal is to make everyone be part of ICCT Poshaka Parivar and provide a foundation to develop brotherhood and make a collective impact through selfless service (Nishkama Karma Yoga) in promoting Heritage, Devotion and Spirituality for generations to come. And, ultimately provide a path to uphold the Dharma!
