Aside

“God rushes to be with those who are pure and devoid of malice. He resides in the hearts of the Realized Ones. He relieves the burdens of those hearts that are filled with compassion and showers his grace on penitent souls. He abides eternally in those who are contented.”  Pujyashri Mathioli Saraswathy

Her Holiness Pujya Shri Mathioli Saraswathy’s (Pujyasri Akka’s) Visit to New Jersey: October 2017

UPDATE – 10/7/17:

Her Holiness Pujyasri Mathioli Saraswathy’s trip to NJ has been postponed. However, the events will take place as planned. We will keep you posted on her trip to NJ as soon as we find anything.

Though she is not going to be here, she has blessed our event and will always be there to bless us spiritually. We’re looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday.

Thank you for all the help and support. With Sri Amma’s blessings this Sankata Hara Chaturthi pooja will be a grand one as we had planned.


Dear Everyone,

We are excited to announce Her Holiness Pujyasri Mathioli Saraswathy (Pujyasri Akka’s) visit to the New Jersey area. We will have the following events in her divine presence. Please let us know if you would like to do sankalpam for the pooja.

Mark your calendars!

Nandalala Mission NJ is extremely happy to announce that Her Holiness Pujyasri Mathioli Saraswathy (Pujyasri Akka) will be visiting NJ area in October.

In the divine presence and blessings of Her Holiness Pujyasri Mathioli R. Saraswathy (Pujyasri Akka), Founder Nandalala Mission, Nandalala Mission is

Location and other details TBD.

#2 – Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 9:00 AM: Lakshmi Kubera Pooja

The Devi made Lord Kubera the lord of wealth and material. Lord Kubera’s responsibilities are to distribute them while we all know that Goddess Lakshmi is the one who creates the wealth. This is why you often see Lord Kubera shown as showering gold coins and navaratnas (gems). Performing pooja to Lord Kubera is believed to enrich one’s life. Hence, Sri Lakshmi Kubera Pooja is performed to have a wealthy and comfortable life.

We have the unique opportunity of participating in the pooja in the presence and blessings of Pujyasri Akka (Goddess herself). This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

  • SANKALPAM FOR BOTH POOJAS: $130.00
  • SANKALPAM FOR LAKSHMI KUBERA POOJA ONLY: $108.00

As is customary on Vijayadashami, devotees are encouraged to honor the guru with a dakshina after receiving Her blessings.

Please plan to arrive early to avail of this rare opportunity. The Vijayadashami celebration will begin with the Aksharabhyas and continue for the first 20 minutes. It will resume after the book release and children’s show conclude. Dinner boxes will be available for attendees at the conclusion of the event.

Date: September, 30th 2017

Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Venue: Columbia Middle School MPR, Columbia Neighborhood Center complex: 785 Morse Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94085
