On November 21, 2009, Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols visited the Hindu temple of Neasden, a suburb of London, the largest outside of India. Nichols was greeted by the pagan hierophant Yogvivek Swami, who is leader of the temple, and received a “blessing” on his forehead, made with a red ointment.
The Archbishop was given a tour of the temple, where he offered flowers to the deities and lit a candle to them while participating in a religious ritual. The tour ended at the main altar where Vincent Nichols paid homage to Pramukh Swami, spiritual guru of an international Hindu organization. Then, he stopped to meditate in front of the altar of the deity Bhagwan Swaminarayan.
After these religious compromises, he delivered a speech to the 2,000 Hindus present on religion’s contribution to the common good and the importance of the understanding of one another’s cultures and traditions. His presupposition was that Hindus worship the same god as Catholics, which is blatantly wrong and raised strong reactions even among commentators in the secular media
, such as a journalist of the Daily Telegraph. The website of the
Westminster Archdiocese
first posted the news admitting that Nichols had “offered flowers to Hindu deities,” but soon removed this phrase.
A photo gallery of the event can be seen at the website of the Hindu temple

November 23, 2009

The Most Rev Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster and President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, has made an official visit to the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Europe’s first traditional Hindu temple in Neasden, north London.

 

 

 

The visit took place on Saturday 21 November 2009 during Interfaith Week and on the birth anniversary of the worldwide spiritual leader of the Hindus who pray at the Mandir (Hindu Temple) at Neasden, His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj.

Archbishop Nichols was greeted by the Mandir’s spiritual leader, Yogvivek Swami, (Head Sadhu, BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha – UK & Europe) and the Trustees of the Mandir. He was welcomed in traditional Hindu style – with a red vermillion mark applied to the forehead and the tying of a sacred thread* on the wrist, symbolising friendship and goodwill

 

*Ezekiel 13:20: Therefore thus says the Lord God: See! I am coming at those bands of yours in which you entrap men’s lives; I will tear them from their arms and set free those you gave caught. (New American Bible)
