Sai Pariwar, North Brunswick celebrated Ayyappa Swamy Padi Puja (Sastha Preethi) on December 4, 2022, at Sai Mandir in North Brunswick where more than 200 devotees attended the event to receive Baba’s blessings.  More than four hours of spiritual activities including Sai Baba Kakada Aarthi, Lord Ganesha & Lord Murugan Puja, Abhishekham, Parayanam, Alankaram, Bhajans & Archana were enjoyed by the devotees followed by Sai Baba Madhyana Aarthi and Prasadam were part of the blessed day.  

The Sai Mandir, North Brunswick (Sai Pariwar), has acquired land in the Central New Jersey area in North Brunswick Township, on Route 130, next to Shoprite Complex, to build Baba Temple and Cultural Center, which will be the spiritual abode of not only Sri Shirdi Saibaba, but other Hindu deities.  The current temple in North Brunswick is in the warehouse areas and the property is very old with logistical challenges of parking and limited access to special needs and handicapped devotees.  The new temple will allow the devotees an opportunity to have the facility to worship at a location that is safer with ample parking, basic needs, and equipped with technologies required in the 21st century. The new temple will bring Indian communities and devotees together so that our future generations will have a place to pray at Baba’s feet and to carry on our traditions, culture, values, and heritage in the Central Jersey area.   

The goal of Sai Pariwar is to raise $3 million to complete the construction of the new temple in the upcoming years.   The Sai Pariwar Board of Trustees and executive committee are requesting all devotees to contribute generously and also reach out to their friends, families and other acquaintances for their generous support, so they can start meeting financial goals of construction and also becoming a volunteer in various temple committees.  The temple management under the leadership of President Shiva Kolli and a dedicated executive committee and trustees is sincerely urging everyone for extending their generous contributions and support in this project while offering them the chance to reach our affluent and growing Indian community in the Central Jersey area.  A new temple construction will begin soon which is only five minutes away from the current location in North Brunswick.
