WHO SERVE HUMANITY
Now you can connect to the Divine through Serving the Deities at Srinivasa. With this new program, you can actively assist the pujaris who serve the deities every day by sponsoring the deities. For every puja conducted for the deity, the blessing goes to the sponsors. In this way, you are helping the deity to be served while gaining benefits for yourself as well.
CARRY THE BLESSING
We are happy to offer you this unique opportunity to become an integral part of Srinivasa Temple. With Serving the Deities, you can be of vital assistance to the pujaris by helping to make sure the daily needs of the deities and the temple are taken care of financially.
With your contributions, you participate energetically in the blessings of the deities every day. The blessing helps restore balance and harmony to all the five elements of nature. This helps to bring more harmony and stability into our lives, which empowers us to serve others better. Through the blessing given to you, you can be a source of change and support in this world.
YOU MAY ASK, ‘WHAT BLESSING DO I RECEIVE?’
The deities impart their grace and energy to those who have contributed to the puja. For example, when abhishekam is offered to the deity, the Grace that flows from the deity actually purifies and balances all the five elements of the pujari, the people who are present, and those who have sponsored. Purification and balancing of the five elements helps one to become more centered, attain a greater state of health in mind and body, and be in harmony with one’s life path and spiritual journey. This blessing is open to all those who wish to participate.
