Happenings At NESSP This Weekend

Press Release

Happenings at NESSP this weekend

Friday, May 18th, from 6:30 PM – Devotee meeting (Updates about temple construction project)

Saturday, May 19th, from 9 am – Annual Palkhi Initiation

The annual Palkhi festival organized by the New England Shirdi Sai Parivaar occurs every summer. It is an opportunity for devotees to welcome their beloved Shirdi Sai Baba home. This year's Palkhi Utsav (festival) initiation starts on Saturday, 19/May/18. Sri Sainath Maharaj arrives at each home to bless it and the host family among music and celebrations. Each family prepares to welcome Him with devotion, by preparing for the worship (Puja), food offering (Naivedyam), and Prasad to serve the devotees. Some families choose to devotedly host lavish breakfast, lunch or dinner Prasad to the devotees. The volunteers meanwhile perform devotional music (Bhajans) accompanied by musical instruments.  Some of the knowledgeable volunteers are assigned to function as priests to perform rituals during the home worships

The Palkhi festival cannot succeed without the dedicated service of the temple volunteers. This year about 160 families have registered to welcome Sai Baba's Palkhi to their homes. On average, volunteers cover 10-15 homes per weekend day. Over the past several years, the temple has sent the Palkhi across several New England states as far as New Hampshire, Maine and Rhode Island, in addition of course to Massachusetts. The temple has evolved clear and systematic procedures to make the festival smooth and efficient. Detailed plans are developed well in advance in coordination with each of the host families' requirements. Other logistics such as optimization of travel routes, host family convenience, and volunteer assignments/slots are used to draw up detailed schedules.  The goal is to maintain minimization of delays between home visits. NESSP does not charge any fee for these Palkhi visits from participating families. All donations are voluntary

The Palkhi festival this year continues all through June, drawing to a conclusion on Sunday, 22/July/18, fittingly ending with a grand Palkhi concluding ceremony in the temple.


Please come forward and become part of the “Last Mile Fund Raiser”. All the donors names will be recognized with their names carved on the special donor section wall in the new temple.
