Does a Temple have to have devotees?

Today, much discussion is about managing temples – their resources, revenues, working structure, administration, and ritual schedule.

These spaces are also complex ecosystems diligently fostered by people of every stratum for millennia. It is also irresponsible and futile.

To understand this ethos, we are presenting a streamlined course on ‘Temple Management in the Agamas‘ that seeks to give the participant a thorough understanding of the temples’ framework through the Śaivāgama canon.
