We are The Joshi family. Three siblings. At Darshan we pride ourselves on a family tradition that spans the last three generations of providing Hindu prayers that are creative, and real. ​​​Faith is an integral and important part of many lives and prayer is a personal reflection of time and meditation. Having faith is a personal responsibility.


Our philosophy is to bring that faith to people in an appropriate, dignified and ethical manner. But in order to do this we need to be allowed to practice our faith freely and conduct ceremonies as we have been taught. ​During any ceremony we try and talk through what it is you are doing and why, both in Gujarati and English. Shlokas are in Sanskrit.

Of course, prior to the event/s we will help you plan your day an understanding of what it's like on the inside; the common pitfalls and the joys. We have tried to help by attaching all the resources you need from auspicious times, to the samaghri list on the resources page.


Many people ask what we as individuals bring. Our role as preachers is to guide; not to be compared, selected or interviewed in the process; we bring our own character to events to ultimately uphold the Vedas. There can be no demands of a preacher when inviting and there are no window shopping or provisional bookings. Everyone has their own strandards and ethics. Respect is one.

You will also find images here from weddings we have conducted. These images give a sense of the type of ceremony we try to perform. ​If you are genuine and seriously considering inviting us to conduct prayers then: (1) Please do view the content of the pages thoroughly and then feel free to contact via phone or email.

Due to increasing covid cases no face to face meetings will take place currently with extended family members. Nov 2021. Contact can be via zoom.
