PETITION AGAINST THE MANDATORY RESERVATION SYSTEM INFRINGING ON FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS

 

I, _________________________________, am opposed to the Mandatory Reservation System at the Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple located in Watsonville, CA, because it violates the Fundamental Right to exercise freedom of religion.

 

The Mandatory Reservation System is enforced by the governing body and community at Mount Madonna Center who are predominantly not Indian and not observant Hindus.  Recently, this public-benefit non-profit organization is requiring devotees, who are mostly of Indian origin, to make appointments for worship at the temple located on their grounds, despite their founding principle of turning none away. They claim this is being done for two reasons: First, to assure capacity for fee-for-service programs such as Yoga Teacher Training and Ayurveda. Second, to extend quiet and privacy for the benefit of resident staff.  I petition against this cultural misappropriation and violation of Fundamental Rights.
