Nevada (US), June 10 (ANI): In a remarkable interfaith gesture, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, who delivered the reportedly first Hindu invocation of Boise City Council on June eight since its incorporation in 1866, visited the Boise Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) on an invitation before the historic invocation.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, was received at the Temple by J. Craig Rowe, Quorum of the 70 (Idaho) of LDS; R. Craig Rasmussen, Director Idaho Public Affairs of LDS; Wenden Waite, Temple President; and Laura K. Waite, Temple Matron.

Tallest East Tower of Boise LDS Temple, dedicated in 1984, has gold leafed figure of Angel Moroni and his trumpet and words "Holiness to the Lord" and "House of the Lord" are inscribed twice on it.

According to LDS sources, Jesus Christ is the head of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which has been restored by God through the Prophet Joseph Smith (1805-44). Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. (ANI)
