During one’s journey from mother’s womb to the last breath of life towards God, Vedic rituals are to be performed at the appropriate time, for a particular life event, to achieve great punya in one’s life time and for the next.

The present day time-starved busy life style does not allow many to preserve the teachings and Vedic rituals which are meant to be religiously followed to lead a peaceful, blissfully happy and prosperous life, facilitating a very content material life and to awaken and advance the soul towards spiritual upliftment.

Vedic rituals are being performed at the Temple daily with the prime goal of your peace, happiness & satisfaction in your life, for special days of your life & your time of emotional, physical & financial struggles.

You may e-mail the personal information required for this pooja: your Name, Gothram, Nakshatram. If you are not aware of this information, we can determine it if you provide your date of birth.

On the important day of your life, you are welcome to personally attend the ritual. If you cannot join us, the Center can include your name during daily rituals at the Center & mail the prasadam to you.

On appointment, the priest can perform the pooja at your preferred location. For providing your services & benefits, donation can be offered to the Center & dakshina to the Priest.

May God Bless you, your family & the entire humanity.

Srimad Bhagavad Gita verses 3.13 & verses 17.8,9,10 explain the nature of food. In summary, it reiterates the adage, “You are what you eat”. In essence it says that the food that is offered to the Lord or consumed must be pure and must be sattvik in nature. Also food is something that brings people together. SBAT is pleased to offer the devotees food prepared at the temple for the private religious events at temple, a pooja at home or even for your special occasions.

Jai Sri Ram!

This temple is known for bestowing better health to the devotees. The idol is believed to have special power and is considered a healer. The main Temple building has path-ways all around the sanctum sanctorum and also a large covered space (Mandapam) for devotees to assemble in front of the Lord for offering worship. On the North-West corner, a full-fledged Sannidhi for Sri Rama has been built and here He has taken abode with Seetha and Lakshmana with Anjaneya in attendance. The Gods are facing East. Rama’s role as the protector and ruler is signified here as Rama is seen carrying his bow, hence the name “Kothanda Rama” for the Lord here.
