Namaste Panditji 🙏,
My father in law passed away in June 2020 and we could not travel to India due to the corona issues and no flights . We were feeling sad and searching in the UK if there is some place to do the 12th day rituals and luckily found your website who does all the 4 days rituals in 1 day and glad we decided on the 12th day morning and you asked us to travel same day as its done on 12th or 13th day. We were really pleased that even during this corona time you were taking up only private appointments for rituals per family and the way you performed all the rituals, even explained us the meaning and did the Pinda kriya, Shuddi, Shraddh and Havan was so nicely done and highly recommendable . Thank you so much :-)

Pranaams Panditji Dipak,
I have now returned to Norfolk. I didn't have your number on my phone and so I am letting you know
Much gratitude 🙏🏿 to you for conducting the prayers at home and at Mortlake. You made us feel at peace even though our minds felt so turbulent. I am very grateful for the care and sincerity that you showed us at this difficult time.
I hope you are well and that Shakti Temple in Talbot Road continues to spread a beautiful aura around all those fortunate enough to benefit from it.
We would like to thank you and your wife for the ceremony that was carried out for us - very good explanation of the mantras and sincerity in carrying it out as per religious rules. Please upload this email as feedback

All of our guests and family absolutely loved how funny and relaxed Dipak made the ceremony. Dipak was amusing, entertaining and insightful and really made our day. My husband and a lot of our friends are British so it was very important that Dipak was able to explain the traditions of a Hindu ceremony simply whilst involving a lot of different people.
I was worried that a Hindu ceremony may be quite long (including translations and explanations) but after discussing with Dipak we identified the important parts of the Hindu ceremony that we wanted. Dipak was always available either by phone, text or email and helped us have a truly memorable day especially traveling a long distance to carry out our ceremony in Sussex in the summer of 2019.
Thank you so much for making our day so enjoyable.

Text: Please add my testimonial Panditji.
We needed an authentic funeral service performed professionally by a well practised priest to allow for a smooth journey onward for our departed mother. We received that and much more from Panditji Dipak, a kind , helpful and knowledgeable soul who put us all at ease . We are grateful.

RE: JSK, as per my promise I would like you to add my testimonial to your website.
Thank you ever such a lot to perform a Vaastu Havan and a Satyanarayana Kath at my new home in Bracknell Heath. I have witnessed many of the Hindu Rituals with my friends and relatives since I was a young child.
My family and friends really talk a lot about you and discuss the rituals you performed on the day with through explanations of Vedas and the Puranas the difference between divine and mortal earth the ethos. You were simply great.
You captivated us with your humour as well the explanations of contemporary sciences in relations to Shree Sanatan Dharma which was so great would like to invite you again.
I am sorry you were fined as we are on a new estate I have emailed to the council and spoke to them we will be fine as regards to the fine.
We enjoyed seeing you again on Holi at your Shree Shakti Mandir had a great darshan and thank you for your blessings while playing Holi with us.

Highly recommend for Hindu Wedding.
Dipak bhai was our priest for our Hindu wedding in July 2018. I came across Dipak bhai using Google search engine and called the number on his website. I was quick to choose Dipak bhai as my Maraj as he came across friendly, passionate and very knowledgeable. He was always easy to reach by phone, emails and WhatsApp messages.
Dipak bhai performed a small Hindu ceremony at my house in London and at our wedding in Iver; for me it was very important that my Maraj spoke English as my husband is not Hindu and I wanted his friends and family to understand the ceremony. The ceremonies were traditional and well explained on the day. Dipak bhai is very helpful in catering to our requirements and timings of the day.
He helped us build a schedule for the main day so that proceedings could run as smoothly as possible. Dipak bhai is very likeable and delivered exceptionally on the day and this was greatly noticed by all our guests who continue to tell us how much they enjoyed the ceremony because of Dipak bhai's fun and warm nature.
My husband and I were very happy with Dipak bhai and would recommend him to our friends and family for their religious ceremonies as he brought to our traditional Indian wedding, joy, humour, warmth and blessedness.

Hi Pandit ji,
I hope you remember me from mine and Joseph's (not Simon!!) wedding last July at Syon Park.
We wanted to write you a testimonial for your website:
We absolutely loved your ceremony as did all of our family and friends. You were the true rock and roll of the wedding - witty, entertaining and insightful. We found that you performed our wedding ceremony perfectly, capturing the essence of the true elements of a Hindu ceremony whilst catering to both Indian and British cultures. Above all, whilst maintaining the decorum of a traditional Hindu Punjabi wedding, you still entertained us all - everyone was engaged. We can't thank you enough for making our day special and for making us smile the whole way through. Thank you pandit ji.

Message : Dipak Pandit ji did house warming ceremony for us at our flat in Chertsey in dec 2011. We found pandit ji's details by searching for hindu priest on internet. That was the first time we performed Havan and we felt so blessed after completing the ritual. Pandit jis attention to detail, doing every ritual as it should is marvellous. English translation of mantras is the highlight, which made it so easy for us to understand the reason for each ritual, some how when blessing us he said next I will be comming to bless your house .
We visited to Shakti Mandir to get blessings from pandit ji when we bought new car.
And now we bought a house in Ashford August 2014 its Dipak Pandit ji who did hosuewarming for us i.e Ganapati Puja followed by Havan. Also did puja for our Kuldevta and our ancestors it made us so contended after the process to be able to worship them & get blessings. We see the same dedication,enthusiasm and sense of humour in pandit ji which we witnessed three years ago.
Our family n friends who attended the Puja were all praising Pandit ji for the wonderful ceremony. This time Panditji said I will come to bless your palace next ,we said we only want your blessings we felt the precesnce of Gods and Goddess each time , that in it self is a real blessings.
Thankyou very much Pandit ji for your blessings & coming all the way to Surrey.
Thanks and Regards,

sorry for the late response as we have just about recovered from the wedding and the honeymoon please find the attached photos of the wedding ceremony which was conducted so well , truly amazing the way you explained everything in English, everyone present had a good time especially our English guest . Nisha sends you her regards and apologize for not being nice to you initially, at first she thought it would be an ordinary wedding ceremony but you went beyond her belief, she says you brought a new dimension to the Shree Sanatan Dharma, while entertaining with your spot on sense of humor , from bottom of our hearts thank you very much for being our priest.
