After sharing the experiences of devotees at Roopen Agrahara Shirdi Sai Baba Temple ,today I am sharing the recent developement that has taken place in the sanctum sanatorium "Roopen Agrahara Shirdi Sai Baba Temple". Many devotees have visited the temple after the details of the temple was published in this website and have witnessed Baba's grace .From the time the details have published more changes and developement has taken in the temple .Details of the development in the temple are provided by Shri Rama Rao ji and posted here for one and all.Jai Sai Ram .
I am Rama Rao from Bangalore.Hope you and your family are doing well.
It is long time since I communicated with you.But you , our web site and the devotees are always in my heart.
I could not be very active for the last one and half year .
I could not even go to Roopen Agrahara (shivammathayee Baba temple) temple all these months though the priests invited me for all the occasions.
Yesterday I happened to read the devotee's narration about the activity she had in the temple last year
Very nice and appreciable service.
Today morning I went to the Roopen Agrahara BABA temple.
It was nice to see the renovated temple and the premises when compared to the condition a few years ago when I sent the history of the temple.
Priest told me that devotees are spending money and getting the changes done either on their own or by giving donations to do the job. One devotee has given the prabha(arch--. see the photo),one devotee got the entire roof and flooring repaired and got the inside painted.
The entry gate, which was a small rotating type has been replaced by a nice gate and the area is cleaned and cemented(see the photo).
Even the main door has been replaced(see photo).One devotee has given TV .A new "Harathi- Drum"(which plays drums and bells while giving Harathi)was installed. One devotee gave silver crown. One devotee gave bureau(metal cupboard).
Priest Sri Venkata Raju garu said that ever since the web site published the history of the temple,slowly it is becoming popular to many by reading it and devotees are coming even from abroad and giving things to temple.
It is HE who got it done .We are all tools .We should be only glad that HE chose us at that time like many devotees do different things at different times chosen and initiated by BABA.
The temple is being maintained with Poojas, functions, annadanam on some occasions, prasadams,supervision of renovation work etc. by the devoted and committed priests Sri Sampangi garu and Sri Venkata Raju garu ,They are supported by:
Mrs. Kamalamma garu(wife of sri Gopal reddy garu) and their son Sri Narendra babu garu and also Mrs. Sharadamma garu ( wife of sri Narayan reddy garu)they are the members of the family of land donars which donated land to Shivammathayee.
We are all thankful to all of them and appreciate every devotee for their contribution to the temple.
I enclosed a few photos ,just to show the change.I leave it to you to decide whether to put this in the blog or not.either way it is Ok,
This is just to show that BABA takes care of us, inspires us and gets the things done by us for the benefit of all to get into the grove of his teachings which are driving force to lead a pious life.
Thanks and Regards
