Temple History

Blessings to Sai devotees

Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Sansthan LA is an amazing organization that came into existence in less than 4months of conceiving the idea of bringing Sai Baba to LA area. It is believed to be truly miraculous how fast paced the developments took place culminating with first Sai Baba temple in Southern California on January 21st, 2007. Ever since that auspicious day, the number of devotees visiting the temple grew by leaps and bounds.

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 Sansthan 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.
