Please follow us at our temple Facebook page or YouTube page for live events.

                                                                                                                              March 24th, 2020

Dear Devotees,                                                                                                                 

In order to stop the spread of Coronavirus, though it is painful, we have closed the Temple for all Devotees until further Notice. Nobody comes-in and Nobody goes-out.

Here is what we are doing now:

First, we wish you all a Very Happy and Healthy Saarvari Yugaadhi (New Year - March 24) and may our Divine Parents - Sri Mahaa-Lakshmi and Lord Sriman-NaaraayaNa Bless you and all your loved ones with good Health and Prosperity in this Saarvari New-Year.

We know you cannot come to the temple but we are continuing all the religious events in isolation, and you can watch them on line, using our Facebook link. We are celebrating Yugaadhi on March 24th, Sri-RanganaaTha's Birthday on March 25th, Sri-Raama-Navami on April 2nd and Sri-Mahaa-Lakshmi Birthday on April 6th, 2020. All these events will be live on Facebook and please join us for these events on Facebook. Please send us your Gothram, birth-star and names of all your family members and we will do Archana for the Physical and Spiritual Well-Being of all of you (send to contactus@ranganatha.org).

Social Distancing has become the norm these days as that's the only way we can win this war between the virus and Humanity. This creates tremendous stress and mental anxiety to many of us. But in this stressful time, we should not lose our Faith in God. We need Social-Distance coupled with Spiritual-Connectivity. It is very stressful being away from friends and in isolation but we can always be connected to God. It is easy to lose our faith in God or we begin to question why our beloved God is punishing His own children - all the human beings. If you have questions like this or need a boost to your Spiritual-Connectivity, please feel free to call Sri-Krishna Desika Jeeyar at 551-500-3601.

When we started the Temple, we did not have land or a plan but an idea in some people's mind. You may ask how did we achieve this. Lord RanganaaTha helped us to achieve this through all of you. We not only built the beautiful temple, and paid off Millions of dollars of loan we took to achieve in building Lord's house. Thank you all for your generosity which made us embrace a very unique No-Ticket policy for all religious services for past 15 years. You all made this YaTha-Sakthi policy a reality, so that nobody bothers you to pay certain amounts.  Now, if no devotee is allowed to come to temple due to the virus, we shall have NO income but must meet all the expenses such as paying salaries and accommodation expenses to priests, insurance, maintenance and utilities bills etc. We must meet over $50,000 as expenses, on a monthly basis.

We are not certain how soon we can open the Temple for your visit and in the meantime we are appealing to you once again to help us by donating on YaTha-Sakthi basis, to meet our monthly expenses (YaTha-Sakthi - $116, $1,116, or more or whatever we can). We anticipate $150,000 shortage for the first 3 months. Please DONATE GENEROUSLY.

Ways to donate :  You can visit our website(www.ranganatha.org) and donate On-Line, using PayPal (http://www.ranganatha.org/donations/online-request), or mail a check to above address, or call the Temple at 845-364-9790 EXTN 101 (sometimes no one may answer due to shortage of volunteers, Please be patient) and donate with Credit-Card.

 

Thank You. Srimad Azhagiyasingar ThiruvadigaLe SaraNam.         

Board of Trustees, in the service of Sri-Mahaa-Lakshmi & Lord Sri-RanganaaTha.
