कोभिड्-१९ को सन्क्रमण हाम्रो समुदायका सदश्यहरुमा पनि भर्खरै भएको ले गर्दा र हाम्रो समाज एक्दमै एक आपस्मा नजिक भएकोले गर्दा दुख पूर्वक हाम्रो मन्दिर २ हप्ताको लागिबन्द भएको जान्कारी गराउदछौ, यसको लागि क्षमा । बाध्य अवस्था ले गर्दा तीज जस्तो महान चाडमा पनि मन्दिर बन्द गर्नु परेकोमा हामीलाई दुख लागेको छ ! हामीलाई बिश्वास छ्, हजुरहरुले यस बध्यतालाई बुझी दिनुहुनेछ |
