Grand inauguration of Sai Temple is on Dussehra

The wait is over, Grand inauguration of Largest Sai Temple is on Dussehra Day.

New England Shirdi Sai Parivaar announces the grand opening of the largest Shirdi Sai Temple in North America on Saturday, the 30th of September 2017.

On the auspicious occasion of Dasara, as well as the commemoration of Sai Baba's 99th Mahasamadhi Day, NESSP invites all devotees, far and near, to join us as we welcome our beloved Sadguru Sri Sainath Maharaj into His New Abode at the majestic new temple at 99 Shirdi Way, Groton, MA.

As part of the inauguration, NESSP is planning a Sahasra Kalasha (1008 Kalashas) MahaKumbhabhishekam for the RajaGopuram of the temple. Kumbhabhishekam is a temple consecration ceremony conducted to purify the temple by bathing its crown, Shikhar or Gopuram in sanctified water, honey, milk, and other libations at an auspicious time accompanied by chanting and other religious rites.

Devotees can participate in this MahaKumbhabhishekam ceremony by sponsoring a Kalasha, the holy waters from which will be used in purification rituals and for Abhishekam of the RajGopuram on their behalf.

The upcoming temple complex promises to be a cultural and community center where devotees as well as their young ones will have the opportunity to remain connected with their roots even as they find their place in the world and grow in their achievements.

In addition to the main prayer hall, the shrines of Lord Ganesha, Shiva, Lord Venkateshwara, RadhaKrishna, Sri Ram Parivaar, Vasavi Maata, Kashmiri Sharika Maata, Nava graha, Dwarkamai and Chavadi will be installed in the respective areas.

Temple will be equipped with classrooms and multipurpose hall for cultural events, with plans for additions such as an auditorium and library.

Please join us on this blessed day for a festival of worship, celebration, music, dance and other cultural events. And last but not the least, to catch a glimpse of the holy sanctuary, that by His Grace, will serve as a portal for devotees everywhere to receive the Grace and Blessings of their Sadguru from Shirdi, 8,000 miles away.

Our scriptures say: "The ceremony will bring in peace and happiness to all the people who reside in that area, and who participate in the celebrations". Do not miss this blessing of participating in Pranapratishta, Kumbhabhishekam and other Poojas on the day of Inauguration.
