By Baba’s grace the Trustee’s of Shri Shirdi Saibaba Temple Association of London (SHITAL) are pleased
to inform we have now secured the Wembley Temple premises on mortgage.
As you all are aware, we have been running a campaign Dream Sai Wembley to collect funds to secure the
premises with an intended target to raise £590,000. We are please to inform we have collected £240,000. We
sincerely thank each and everyone who have contributed towards this good cause.
We propose to extend our current campaign of Dream Sai Wembley so that we can raise £350,000 to pay off the mortgage by 11th October 2016.
We humbly request all devotees to help and support us in this extended campaign with an aim to repay the mortgage in full by the target date and acquire the Wembley Temple premises permanently. Together we can make a difference. Be a part of Dream Sai.
By Baba’s blessing and your continuous love & support we’ll get strength to walk towards the aim of reaching our target.
Benefits of participating in Temple construction and Charity
Charity is a virtue in itself and is considered to be a purifying, refining practice on the path of spiritual progress. “The crowning act of charity is to construct a temple. He who attempts to erect temples for Gods is freed from the sins of a thousand births. Even a thought of constructing a Temple is adequate to demolish sins of long standing nature” says Agni Purana.
In chapter 35, Sri Shirdi Sai Baba said to a devotee by name Kaka Mahajani, "If I take one rupee as Dakshina (donation) from anybody I have to return it in tenfold to him". So the best way to receive is to give.
It is also mentioned that Lord Yama (the God of Death), addressed the ‘Yamadootas’ (agents of Death) and said: “Never bring the human beings to ‘Naraka’ (Hell) who constructed and contributed to temples. Never even look at the children or relatives of those illustrious devotees. By building a temple for the Lord one takes his family, a hundred generations past and a hundred to come, to Vaikuntha (spiritual abode)”.
