Radiant thoughts of Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale

Why should we oppose Government take-over of Hindu Temples ?

Temple management should be with the devotees; only then will serving God take place in a bhav-enriched manner. This does not happen now since Governments have taken over temples; besides, corruption in Governments is present in temple management too. As a result, God will depart from the temples, and devotees will not get any benefit from visiting temples.
