Happy Thursday and Happy Baba's day ,
After a long gap Baba has helped us again to come up with Shirdi Sai Baba temple details which has its own leela behind it and we are well aware without Baba's grace nothing happens .This temple is also proof of his divine will .
I feel Baba has His blessing on sister Asha and made her instrumental in getting all the details of Shirdi Sai temple. Ashalatha sister has been really taking lot on initiative and travelling extra mile to get Baba's temple information on her own and helping this temple resource blog furnished with Shirdi Sai Baba temple details.Here is detail information of Shirdi Sai Baba temple Texas . Like Ashalatha sister other Sai devotees can also contribute and send Shirdi Sai Baba temple information located in their area or city at this e-mail ID email@example.com
Jai Sai Ram .
Guru Ramachar S Mukkotipuram who was blessed by Shirdi Sai Baba in coming up with a Sai mandir in Texas, was a priest in Sai temple, Florida for 4 ½ years. He says that he actually came on a deputation for a period of 15 days to perform some pooja and at the completion of the pooja he was supposed to go back as the temple could sponsor for only one priest and they already had one, as everyone know that Sai’s ways are just unfathomable.
Sai wanted even Ramacharyulu to serve him as a priest and made necessary arrangements for his stay in the temple itself as a priest.
In the end of the year 2004 Ramacharyulu went to Shirdi for Sai darshan and he wanted to have Sai Vigraham (Pratima), he went to a shop and he bought the pratima of Sai, to his surprise the shop keepers without being requested took the Sai pratima to Samadhi Mandir, kept in the lotus feet of our Sai Maharaj and then gave the same to Ramacharji.
Meantime, two other Sai devotees by named Satish Rangarajan and Govinda Rangarajan were also been inspired by Sai with the thought of coming up with Sai temple joined hands with Ramacharji.
Before things could fall in its place another group of Sai devotees set up a Sai mandir and inaugurated in Plano, but Sai wanted one more in Irving and made these three devotees instrumental for coming up with the new mandir and fulfilled the heartfelt wish of his Sai children.
Sai mandir was registered in the year 2005 and baba had blessed Satishji to be instrumental in getting the pratima from Jaipur. Sai’s pratima traveled From Jaipur-Bangalore
(Shri. Gopal Baba in Bangalore performed pooja to Sai)
From New York by road to Texas.

On the 13th April most auspicious day being the Vigraha prastistapana Baba performed his leela by not getting placed on the basement made ready for him.
I felt so happy that the priest too wanted to share the same mystery and he said,”Baba did not get into the asan for so long ….” the pooja started with “Navami” and baba waited for “Dashami Muhurtham” and exactly when it was Muhurtham(auspicious)time without any pressure or much efforts he went and sat in his asan.
Believe me my hairs stood at their end, not knowing what to talk and was just looking at Sai thanking him to make us a witness for all these incidents. Still those scenes are very fresh in my eyes and memory, in fact some of us felt may be Sai was waiting for one of his beloved devotee to come. Of course, none can contemplate his ways! Sai wants to bring to the limelight of his devotees these informations in order to enlighten them.
After all the Pratistapana of Sai ,it was time for Madhyana Arati and when the priest asked a volunteer to play the Arati CD it did not work it was working very well even the previous day, and so the priest said if anybody can sing the arati please go ahead and others can follow . Sai blessed me to sing the arati I felt so blessed infact, I was not singing I was just trying to read out the arati lines from my memory. .
