Blessings to Sai devotees…
Sri Sai Narayana Organization is an amazing organization that came into existence in less than 3 months of conceiving the idea of bringing Sai Baba to Richmond area. It is believed to be truly miraculous how fast paced the developments took place culminating with Sai Baba temple in Richmond, Virginia on January 18th, 2007. Ever since that auspicious day, the number of devotees visiting the temple grew by leaps and bounds.
Pandit Sri B. Rajagopalan used to live in Canada and would drive from Canada to Richmond to perform pujas in the house of various devotees. Everyone who participated in the puja were spell bound with his spiritual energy and his mastery of the puja rituals. Eventually as days and months passed by, more and more people started participating regularly in these yantra pujas. In December 2006, few of the devotees showed interest in having a Baba temple and Pandit Sri B. Rajagopalan suggested that people could get together and offer aartis to Baba and read Sri Sai Sathcharitha regularly in devotee’s homes. On January 14th 2007 Pandit told to register “Sri Sai Narayana Organization”. Thus on January 18th 2007 this organization took birth. If not, this temple would have still been a vision in the minds of many devotees.
This miracle is possible only because of the overwhelming devotion displayed by the Sai devotees, volunteers and donors. The temple is in existence because of the devotees who visit regularly in large numbers participating in the religious activities. It is primarily the Sai devotion that translated the idea into a full-fledged temple for Sai Baba. The day-to-day activities in the temple are sustained by community participation of volunteers. They are to support puja, decoration of temple, maintenance of temple surroundings, organizing major events, fund-raising, communication to devotees, financial support, accounting, development and maintenance of web-site and devotee database etc.
One of the primary supports for the temple is obviously financial support. Every single dollar that is donated is extremely important to the temple for its sustenance. There has been overwhelming contribution to the temple fund by numerous donors so far this year.
The Sai Narayana Organization would like to extend heartfelt thanks and blessings from Sai Baba to the donors for being part of the devotional experience of Sai Baba, each individual in their own unique way.
