Bhajans is singing to the divine. The voice carries the desire to connect with a higher vibration. Chanting opens the heart like no other discipline. When we offer our love and gratitude to God, it melts away the veil of illusion and joins us in joy.
We chant every Thursday 7:30 – 9:00 pm . For that 90 minutes we focus on the various manifestations of God. We chant to the Guru, Shirdi Sai Baba, Shiva, Durga, Vishnu, Ganesh, Hanuman and many more.
(Every day 10:30 am – 11:30 am)
Doing the holy bathing of Shirdi Sai Baba and many of our temple idols, is more than just pouring water over the deities. Rather it is one of the most auspicious activities to help us to “wash away” our fatigue, obstacles and refreshes us at a soul level. As we participate while watching this puja, many karmas and negative influences are washed away.
Experience it for yourself!

Every Monday we honor and connect to the form of Shiva – RUDRA. During this puja we invoke the aspect of Shiva which protects and removes obstacles in our lives. There are many influences in our lives which are out of our direct control, such as the influence of the planet, our horoscope and the effects especially of Saturn in our lives. Participating in the Shiva Abishek, it helps mitigate all these negative affects on our lives.

Mahishasura Mardini is often referred to as Kanaka Durga. The form of Mother Divine who is a fierce warrior who came into form to bring back balance to the world by ridding the earth of the evils of the negative forces of the Asuras.
Graceful and benevolent: At the same time, this form is her after having finished her dharma and is now in her repose to give blessings to all who look to her for protection.
During this Kali Yuga, her energy is needed to support our efforts to bring dharma, peace and courage in a way that uplifts our spiritual practices in the world.

It has only been a year since we have received our 6 ft black granite statue of Hanuman. His energy and presence has been growing daily. Join us as we chant to increase devotion, faith and clear out all obstacles through this process.
Hanuman is considered one of the most powerful forms of protection we have to influence us and our lives.
(New & Full Moon @ 6 pm)
Every new moon & full moon each month we gather to sit in front of a sacred fire pit. These fire pujas are designed to remove stress and regain lots of positive energy. The fire element was Shirdi Sai Baba’s most important element; he healed and communicated to the divine through his fire dhuni.
For us we enjoy the benefits of removing stress, clearing our mind, regaining our inner strength and charging our soul with positive protection circles. When we connect to the fire, we are connecting to the angels, divine souls, Mother Divine’s shakti and Universal Male Father. In front of the fire we connect to the highest spiritual vibrations to support our lives in very practical and mystical ways.
Come and join us for our fire pujas every month and special occasions. Visit our calendar to see the next time we meet.
