The fundraiser was held to support the construction of the  Baba Temple and Cultural Center, which, the organization said in a press release, will be the spiritual abode of not only Sri Shirdi Saibaba, but other Hindu Deities.

Sai Mandir, North Brunswick (Sai Pariwar), has acquired land in Central New Jersey area in North Brunswick Township, on Route 130, next to Shoprite Complex, for the new temple.

The highlight at the fundraiser was a Bollywood musical concert with local talented young and veteran singers and musicians who performed melodies for more than three hours, ranging from old to Golden era to newer songs.

Currently, the temple management is working with the township and architects to get construction permits approved, expected to be done in the near future.

The current temple in North Brunswick is in the warehouse areas and the property is very old with logistical challenges of parking and limited access to special needs and handicapped devotees, organizers said.  The new temple will allow the devotees an opportunity to have facility to worship at a location which is safer with ample parking, basic needs and equipped with technologies required in the 21st century, Sai Pariwar said.

The goal of Sai Pariwar is to raise 3 million dollars to complete the construction of new temple in the upcoming years.   The Sai Pariwar Board of Trustees and committee are requesting all devotees to contribute generously and also reach out to their friends, families and other acquintances for an initiative that promises to provide future generations with a place “to pray at Baba’s feet and to carry on our traditions, culture, values and heritage.”
