Shri SaiBaba Dhanyadhivasam Utsav on Monday, August 22nd, 2016

MHT will be celebrating Shri SaiBaba Dhanyadhivasam Utsav as a 2nd step towards Shri SaiBaba Kumbhabhisekam and Prana Pratishtha Utsav. Dhanyadhivasam is done prior to Maha Samprokshanam. During Dhanyadhivasam, the Shri Sai Baba’s Murthy will be completely immersed in Dhanyam (paddy). Bhagavan is saluted through this ritual as “Vishwa-bhuk“, the protector of the Universe. The essence of the manthrams recited at this time is that the Lord is recognized as the Controller, Master and Consumer of the entire universe. It states that the food is a form of nectar and is offered to the Lord.

We have secured Priest Pradeep Sharma from Billerica Temple to perform Shri SaiBaba Dhanyadhivasam.
