Take a step closer to Baba and he takes ten steps nearer to you to erase your pain and sorrow. A sheer thought of Shirdi Sainadh brings utmost joy and peace in our lives.
In order to cater the growing Indian population in and around New Jersey and to serve the community, “Sri Sai Datta Peetham” is grandly opened at 902 Oak Tree Road, #100 South Plainfield, NJ 07080 on the auspicious day of Sivarathri (Feb 27th 2014). Sri Shiridi Sai & Sri Dattatreya Prana Prathista Mahotsavam is going to happen this March 21st till 23rd 2014. The weekend starting Friday March 21st, we get to see Vigraha Jalaadhivaasam and Mandapa Aaraadhanam. On Saturday March 22nd, there will be Yanthra Pooja and Yanthra Sthapanam. And then comes the Big Day Sunday March 23rd we will see Pranapratishta (Sumamuhurtam 9:51 AM). So all the three days are going to be grand gala days for the devotees. Sri Dhira Chaitanyaji also known as Sundar Ramaswamy is visiting the Sai Datta Peetham to conduct this auspicious event.
Sai Datta Peetham is organizing many innovative things with many first of its kind. All the Aarthis and Sevas to Baba are set to happen exactly as per schedules in Shirdi starting with Kakada aarthi at 5:15 AM till Seja aarthi at 9:00 PM. Imagine what an experience it would be watching Baba in the early hours and how good the day turns out to us.
We have a saying “Athidhi devo bhava”, a person who steps into home should be welcomed with warm heart and he should never leave home hungry. Nithya Annadanam is being planned in Sai Datta Peetham. Several Charity works are being planned where the volunteers in peetham will distribute food, clothes to the needy. Sai Bhajans and Satsangs are conducted every Thursday. As part of pallaki seva, Sai Pallaki will be taken to devotees’ houses to bring peace and cure their ailments. And the best part is Archana, Abhishekam and Samoohika vratams will be conducted FREE at Sai Datta Peetham. Sai Datta Peetham is also planning to organize several veda classes and providing courses on Indian culture for the benefit of kids and young generation.
Along with statue of Baba from Shirdi and Sri Dattatreya Statue from Jaipur, Pancha Mukha Siva Lingam (which is only seen in Nepal in Pashupathi nath temple) will be seen in Sai Datta Peetam very soon. Pancha Mukha Ganapati (to bless us for Kaarya Siddhi), Anjaneya Swami and Saneeswara Swami shrines will also be accommodated in peetham. All Navagraha Devathas with their respective Dharmapatni’s and Vahanas (a very rare) will be seen too. Utsava Vigrahas of Ram Parivaar and Ramaa sametha Satyanarayana swami and Lord Ayyappa will be worshipped during festivals.
