Temple Priests:

Acharya Shiv Kumar Mishra

Acharya ji was born in Satna district, M.P. He studied Sanskrit (Prathama and Madhyama) in Chitrakoot, M.P. and Vrindawan, U.P. He also learned Jyotish (Astrology) and Music (harmonium) there. Then he moved to Jammu and Kashmir (Katra, near Vaishno Devi temple) where he got diplomas in Yoga and completed his Shastri and Acharya degrees from Sampurnanand Sanskrit University, Varanasi between 1980 and 1985. He worked as a Priest and Preacher at several temples in Delhi and mostly as a Purohit performing various pujas and sanskaars for Yajmans until 2010. In 2010, he came to USA for Pran Pratishtha ceremony of Hindu Samaj temple in Mahwah, NJ and served as priest and in 2015 moved to Ved Mandir in Milltown, NJ.

His knowledge and experience in performing duties of a Priest and Purohit will serve our temple and community very well. His talents in playing harmonium, singing Bhajans and Keertans, reading scriptures like Ramayan and Bhagwat, and giving Pravachans (discourses) should attract many more devotees to the temple. He would also be able to help with Astrology (preparation of Janm Kundali for new borns) and Yoga classes.
