The upcoming Sankata Hara Chaturthi is right after Vinaya Chaturthi.

Performing the Sankata Hara Chaturthi Pooja is auspicious.

You can sponsor any number of pearls beginning from $31.00 (10 pearls).

Nandalala Mission SFO Chapter: Group Satyanarayana Puja on Saturday, September 6th

Jai Shri Nandalala!

With the blessings and guidance of our Guru and Founder of Nandalala Mission, Her Holiness, Pujyashri Mathioli Saraswathy, we plan to conduct group Satya Narayan puja once every four months.

Accordingly, the first such puja will be conducted on Saturday, September 6th at 10:00 am.

Location:
‘Aamla’
423 Summercreek Lane
San Ramon, CA 94583

Based on the number of responses, we may have to move the puja to a bigger venue.

Only married couples are to perform the actual puja in person. Devotees who are remote or unable to perform puja as a couple can sponsor the puja; their names will be included in the Sankalpa. Puja will be instructed by a priest. Additional information about what to bring for the puja will be provided to the couples who register to perform the puja.

Each sponsor will contribute US $27/-.

Please provide us your details such as family Gotra, Name, Nakshatra, and Rashi. Please note that one sankalpa may include either an individual or at most a couple and their unmarried children. If you wish to pay for sponsorship via Nandalala Mission website (http://nandalala.com/donate-now/), please send copy of your donation receipt to either Umesh Apte (umesh_ma@hotmail.com) or Namrata Apte (namrata_apte@hotmail.com).
