Whosoever puts their feet on Shirdi soil, their sufferings will come to an end.                                     The wretched and miserable will rise to joy and happiness as soon as they climb the steps of the mosque.                                     I shall be ever active and vigorous even after leaving this earthly body.                                     My tomb shall bless and speak to the needs of my devotees.                                     I shall be active and vigorous even from my tomb.                                     I am ever living to help and guide all who come to me, who surrender to me and who seek refuge in me.                                     If you cast your burden on me, I shall surely bear it.                                     If you seek my advice and help, it shall be given to you at once.                                     There shall be no want in the house of my devotee.                                 

Shirdi Sai Mandir Fundraising Appeal

SaiRam Dear Devotees,

We hope and pray with Baba’s grace, everyone is safe and healthy.

Covid-19 has changed all our life’s in some form or the other, but it has profoundly impacted places of worship such as ours with a significant shortfall in donations. On the Gurupoornima day, we started fundraising for the temple and our goal is to raise $54,000 this calendar year. We sincerely thank all the devotees who have contributed so far and appeal to the devotees to join hands in raising this remaining amount to support the temple.

Blessed is Shri Sai Samartha who gives instructions in both temporal and spiritual matters to His devotees and makes them happy by enabling them to achieve the goal of their life, – Sai He who when places His hand on their heads transfers His powers to them and thus destroying the sense of differentiation, makes them attain the Unattainable Thing. – He who embraces the Bhaktas who prostrate themselves before Him with no sense of duality or difference. He becomes one with the Bhaktas as the sea with the rivers when they meet it in the rainy season and gives them His power and position. It follows from this that he who sings the Leelas of God’s Bhaktas is equally or more dear to Him than one who sangs the Leelas of God only.MandalaPooja
