Namaste. 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, enjoyable and an experience worth taking part in.
We believe that Faith is an integral and important part of most lives and prayer is a personal reflection of time and meditation. Thus, our philosophy is to bring that faith to people in an appropriate, dignified and ethical manner.
We genuinely believe everybody, irrespetive of gender, race, religion, disability or sexual oreintation should be allowed access to prayer.
inclusivity wihout dictat is key. Our purpose is not to convert anyone. When you come to us we accept your decision to marry, andive of any cultural, during a ceremony we try and talk through what it is you are doing and why, both in Gujarati and English. Our standards and discipline are perhaps what makes us unique. We are not here to be told what to do; we are merely messengers.
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 hope you will find all the resources you need from auspicious times, to the samaghri list here. You will also find images from weddings we have conducted. They tend to 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 please do view the content of the pages thoroughly and then feel free to contact via phone or email. Confirmed invitations are taken and on a first come first served basis.
Seva is something we also believe in. For years I have been devoted to anti racism both as a police officer and in life. Please find some links below to articles I have written.
Finally, None of the content of this website has been copy written by anyone else. Nor has any other web content been copied from elsewhere. Here you will find primarily one families ethics and observations.
