I am 80 years old and putting diligent effort to realize the dream  to  SERVICE for  Universal Peace, National Integration and Unity, in these Corona Virus times to mobilize pundits and materials is a BIG challenge.

During Ganesha Navaratra our Puttaparthi Ganesha Suggested a silver crown for him. Because of security  problems I did not give much thought, Again repeated now-so we can have a silver crown made to use during festival day time.

                            The budget estimated about  $750

Theme - Don’t be afraid of failure and never never never give up.    Let’s all pray  for Siddhi  Buddhi Ganapathi to Shower His Galloping Grace.

 Dear Embodiments of  Eternal Energy,

     Energy is  Eternal, The science dealing with Eternal energy is called Eternal Science that is Yagans. Every Yagna has unseen positive effect on all beings. Many have performed the Yagnas throughout time.  

Ganesha yagna was performed by:

1. Lord Siva during Tripurasura Samhara  his chariot's king  pin broken and suffered defeat; Then he rendered Ganesha yagna and destroyed  the demons. (Bhagavatam) 

2. Sri Rama at Dharbha Sayanam (where Rama slept on Holy Grass) in Tamil Naidu,  want to start the bridge to Lanka and failed several times. Then Ganesha came to HELP Rama and suggested this is NOT the right place. You go little down and start from  Dhanuskoti (like a bow) and reach at  Ravana palace directly,  which is now called  Ramapada inSri Lanka near Ketheswaram. Then Rama installed Ganesha statue  and  Ganesha Yagna, Then Rama successfully constructed bridge (Setu) and conquered Ravana. One should visit these places in Sri Lank. (Ramayanam) 

3. Amba Parasakti- Parasakti who is  Eternal Energy  fought against Bhandasura and defeated by the demon  several times. He was holding Ganesha Yantra. So Amba destroyed the Ganesha Yantra and then she eliminated the demon.( Devi Bhagavatam) 

4. SPIDER web is an example of success after repeated failures
Jarasandh failed 17 times-18th time He succeeded after  Lord Krishna vacated Madhura and gone Dwaraka.

5. Chandra Gupta and Chanukya many times failed to establish united Bharat.
The mistake was to start  the war in the middle of the enemies, they  attacked from all round and consequently they were defected. Then hearing from  Pedarasi Peddamm’s  advise  during journey,  to start war from one end and establish rule. They rendered Ganesha Yagna and able to establish Mourya Samrajya (Mudra Raaksha book - practical guide for life)

     Saint Sri Panduranga searched for Veda Patasala site for 20 years and after rendering Ganesha Yagna for one week in Kakinada then Veda Patasala established overcoming in surmountable challenges, unthinkable problems, non-comprehensible difficulties.

 After 14 years of obstacles and  continuous effort we are able to establish the temple in the present site in 1991 Monroeville Pa USA, The existing building is more than 100 years old and additions are completed in 1997, 98 and 2000 . We are trying for these 30 years to modernize the existing structure many times failed.

Failure is a stepping stone for success. Until you fail success has no meaning.

We always analyzed and identified the reasons for FAILURE and modified the strategy. It is NOT easy to put effort, time and resources diligently for 3 decades.

So the Goal of this Ganesh Yagna is to modernize the temple. We are sure now that we will reach the goal.

Please support this noble cause for ourselves and future generations.
