  4. Bhajan Offering: In order to allow members to derive joy from offering their reverence to Sai, each member family is given an opportunity to offer the flowers, prasadam (food offering) etc. required for the Bhajans. Member families will take turns every week (based on a lot taken at the beginning of the year) to render their offerings. Any one member of this family will have the privilege of offering Aarathi to Swami on the day of their turn. Please click here for more information.
     
  5. Healing Prayer: On the last Sunday of every month, during the Bhajans, members will offer Healing Prayers with chanting of Maha Mrutyunjaya Mantra. If you wish to pray for someone, you can fill the name of the person you are praying for and leave it at Swami's feet. Forms will be available at the Information desk. The form is also available here.
