Annadanam - Feeding the Poor
For the last thirty years, Sri Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, Pittsburgh, has been conducting annadanam in India. The Temple has supplied tens of thousands of free meals each year to the needy. This year, the Temple hopes to supply 50,000 free meals in rural India. These are delicious, nutritious meals provided to local villagers, many of whom are elderly, young, or otherwise unable to always procure enough food. A typical meal consists of a large helping of rice, dahl, a vegetable dish, and a sweet. Everyone is served until they are satisfied! We kindly ask your donation of any amount to help the needy (Click links below to sponsor).

The theme of 2018 Yagnas: World Peace and individual peace can be accomplished simultaneously. When the hand takes food to the mouth where it is chewed and swallowed, the nourishment spreads to every part of the body. To address the individual problems to achieve mental peace and family stability, the sound (Mantras) and Light (from Fire) of Yagnas will cleanse consciousness in all levels of creation, confer Peace, bliss to all beings, eliminating the wickedness, animal tendencies and enhance integrity. The following Yagnas will address individual problems. Choose the one (s) that will help you achieve your mental peace.:
January12 – Ganesh Yagna - To overcome obstacles and disappointments. Suhasini puja - Marriage and Family stability
January 13 - Manyu (Hanuman) Yagna – For Resolution of Disputes (court), removal of envy, wicked animal tendencies and for peace of mind.
