The word Swastika stems from the Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language: SVASTIKAH, which means 'being happy'. In India the word is related to things of good fortune because it means being happy. The cause of all life and all manifestations of life is movement. As such it's also the sign of the circular movement, the sign of rebirth.

Hi, my name is Kamlesh Vyas. Thank you for visiting the site. I am a Hindu priest, based in Bristol, UK. I have been a Hindu priest for more than 20 years having acquired my formal knowledge into Hinduism in India.

I conduct various Hindu ceremonies in and around the South West of England, and welcome whoever is interested in Hinduism irrespective of their views and backgrounds.

I also work with charities and prisons giving them moral and spiritual support as shown in the Vedas.

Though all Hindus believe in the same fundamental beliefs, however like the sweetness of one’s tea, there are differences in the ceremonies and rituals practiced by various groups in Hinduism. As such I also perform custom-made ceremonies to suit the needs of the individuals and non-main stream groups.

My services are delivered in Hindi, Gujarati, and English, and are available both locally and nationally.
