This is the first time our Family is visiting Baba Temple in New Jersey.As we entered Baba temple ,after a few minutes, my husband said ,he wanted to do Aannadanam Donation , it was sudden but the vibes in the temple made him take that instant decesion of donating.
We did 101$ Annadanam donation for which they gave us the Baba Padukas seen in the pic below .The Pujari  performed  Ashotram  and nice elaborate puja of the padukas too.I wanted Baba Padukas for a long time now but getting them in this suprise manner made me even more happy.If you live near Or visiting NJ ,do visit the temple because seeing BABA ‘s huge beautiful idol so close is unbelievable !
Let us pray at the feet of Sai Baba who is the incarnation of all gods and protector of all, to show mercy on us, and increase our devotion towards him.

My Trip to Shirdi Sai Baba Temple ,Pittsburgh

Pittsburgbabatemple

 

Hello all my Sai devotees , I visited Sai Temple in Pittsburgh ..the Ugadi weekend.It was a beautiful day and there are two things memorable about this trip.

Firstly, I am a proud mother because my 4 year old son did everything in the temple before me telling him anything , like the sastang namskar,touching holy feet of Baba and chanting Om Sai Ram. Constant Thursday bhajan and puja at home have helped Ashrith develop devotion and faith in SAI. I want to write more on this topic but not right now …just come back to read more on developing faith and devotion in kids …soon 🙂

A speciality of Baba Temple ,Pittsburgh  is the stick used by baba has been brought from Shirdi. This holy stick is being used to bless all devotees who visit the shrine.For more info on temple visit here
Secondly, I met an elderly lady in the temple, a huge Sai devotee, who shared her experiences about BABA  and  a Sai Baba temple in Coimbatore.
The Sri Naga Sai Temple in Coimbatore where SAI appeared as a shining and lustrous Cobra small in size but possessing an unusually big hoad with divine marks of Tripundra, Shanka and Chakra.
Another interesting thing she told me was about reading Sri Sai Satcharita (holy book).On completion of the book most of us distribute BABA books ,which she has also done couple of times but now she sends a cheque to India for orphan kids education especially for buying their school supplies. Next time you finish reading the book ,pls think about donating ,as Baba always said “Charity is ornament of hand and give charity as much as you can afford”

Double Celebration: Holi and Women’s Day

Dear Friends and Readers, Happy Holi and Women’s Day !!

Kids were having amazing fun with colors and why not? The weather was so perfect for some outdoor fun.
Happy holi to everybody,may these holi add new colors to everybody’s life.

International Women’s Day
Today, March 8th is celebrated as Women’s Day all over the world, there’s always a debate as to what is the importance of this day or why we celebrate it .Some celebrate it on big scale with get together, some ignore and others have no clue as to what the day is.
Most of us….the modern educated women celebrate Women’s Day because it makes us feel special.
In my books, It has a message more than just feeling SPECIAL …………………
Wherever women are honored, there is prosperity and happiness. Let’s us be a strength, help& encourage others and spread the message of joy and peace.

A Woman I admire the most …….Mother Teresa ,
She quotes   “What I do you cannot do; but what you do, I cannot do. The needs are great, and none of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.”

Please share your thoughts on Women’s day and also mention your Holi celebrations .
