Tips for Getting Started (Native Hindus)

Try to respond to an email from your temple buddy within 48 hours

Try to make a plan to go to the temple at least once a week (unless your buddy is only looking for a one-time experience)

Meet at the temple itself and let your buddy know how to recognize you

If your schedules allow, try to make your first trip to the temple during a quiet time like during a weekday

If you can, introduce your buddy to the pandits at your temple
