Guru Purnima and Free Health Camp by Hindu Temple on 7/26/08
Guru Purnima was celebrated very healthy by the Hindu Temple and Cultural Center of Rockies on 26th July 2008, where more than 200 devotees have attended with a great devotion. Shiridi Sai Community of Rockies has organized a Free Health Camp by Colorado Asian Health Education and Promotion (CAHEP), where more than 60 people have taken advantage of the health checkups worth about $1300. Most of the visiting parents have participated in the health camp. A beautiful status of Shri Sai Baba decorated with flowers and ornaments, was placed on a silver throne, which was placed by a nicely carved granite stone. The program started with Akhanda Sai Namajapam from 3pm to 5pm by the devotees. Then Pundit Raghavendra Iyer has performed Shirdi Sai Maha Abhishekam with Vedic Chants till 6:15pm. The evening was glorified by various Sai Bhajans by the devotees which then followed by Sej Arati. The New Hindu Temple executive Mr. Narender Kumar has presented a slide show about the new Hindu Temple plan and architecture, and explained the current stages of development. It has been a great achievement that the Sai group has realized a total of $140k towards the new Hindu Temple, out of the total commitment of $225k. All the devotees were distributed the prasadam dinner boxes. After the dinner, all the volunteers were recognized with certificates for the outstanding contribution for the smooth execution of the program and the health fair. Everyone expressed a great satisfaction with the health fair, as most of our parents have no insurance, and this served them with their health check.
