As per the directions of MahaSwamiji, it has been decided that a book containing the details of donors with their photographs will be maintained in the Sharada LakshmiNarasimha Swamy Temple premises after the Maha Kumbhabhishekam. MahaSwamiji, after the daily Pooja, would pray for the wellbeing and Shreyas of the donors and bless them with Manthrakshatha on the book. This would be for the lifetime and generations of the Donor. Moreover, as proclaimed by our scriptures the act of serving the construction of a temple frees one from all sins and bestows everlasting Punya. The Skanda Purana mentions that by contributing towards temple construction the sins committed in seven births are wiped off and one gains ten million times the Punya accrued by Yajnya, charity, pilgrimage and other austerities. Also, the individual’s forefathers attain Satgathi.
We invite all to participate in this noble work of temple renovation, by contributing towards any of the above listed Sevas, and become recipients of Guru & Bhagavat Anugraha.
