About Temple

In Hindu tradition, Guru is looked upon as an embodiment of God himself. It is through Guru’s grace and guidance that one reaches the highest state of wisdom and bliss, and Guru Seva (service) is regarded as the highest and noblest of all the actions in this Universe.

Clarity is seeing the holy body of Guru, saying the holy name of Guru, listening to the holy words of Guru, and contemplating the holy form of Guru. Sadguru Shirdi Saibaba is the ultimate master and Guru. Saibaba continues to protect, guide, and bless His devotees even after His Samadhi. The central message of the life and teachings of Saibaba is: Love, which is synonymous with universal brotherhood, transcending all manmade barriers of segregation; Unassailable faith in the existence and mercy of God; If you take one step towards Me, I will take ten steps towards you. Sai never sends anyone empty handed from His doorstep, a promise He made at the time of His Samadhi which he continues to fulfil. Baba is ever merciful to shower His devotees with material benefits or spiritual guidance according to their desires. Arizona did not have a temple for Shirdi Saibaba, where devotees could gather to offer prayers. They either prayed alone or formed small groups to perform Aarathis to Him; a few ardent devotees even regularly flew to other states to pay their homage to Him. With blessings from Sadhguru Shirdi Saibaba, and under the guidance of Shri Saipaadha Meiyadimmai, an ardent devotee and disciple of Shri Shirdi Saibaba, a few devoted families started to get together regularly and perform Aarathi every Thursday evening in their homes.

Other devotees in the area soon heard of this and started joining in large numbers, making it a challenge to accommodate the worship in a house setting. Such is Baba’s love drawing everyone in, always assuring of His protection and blessings… and He showed a solution! Under the direction of Swami Shri Saipaadha Meiyadimmai , on March 19th, 2011, a new place of worship was started in the Phoenix area, which could hold a bigger gathering. We are blessed to have this beautiful temple as a nodal center for all Sai devotees to offer prayers, serve Him, and receive His blessings. Thanks to the tremendous patronage of His devotees, we’ve continued to grow and are in the midst of building a bigger, dedicated temple and prayer sanctuary.

The Vishnusahasranama is one of the most sacred and commonly chanted stotras in Hinduism. Vishnu Sahasranama in Sanskrit means “Thousand names of Vishnu”.

The Vishnu Sahasranam is one of the three jewels of the Mahabharat and is found in the Anushasanika Parvam, the chapter relating to orders or rules to the kings. Anushasanika Parva is in the form of questions and answers between Yudishtra and Bheeshma Pitamaha. To a question as to what is the best possible stotra, Bheeshma answers that it is the Vishnu Sahasra Nama and teaches it to Yudishtra.

Every Name of Sri Vishnu has a meaning to it and the phonetic vibrations by chanting the stotra produces positive vibrations that strengthens the brain neuron chips and also rejuvenates one’s energy leading into divine path.

Lord Shiva is one of the most revered and worshipped Gods in the Hindu religion. Shiva has many hymns and chants to His name. The most famous devotional hymn chanted to invoke Lord Shiva is Sahasranama Stotra. Derived from Sanskrit language, Sahasranama means a thousand names, and Stotra means a devotional hymn. There are various different versions of Shiva Sahasranama Stotra in the Mahabharata, Linga Purana, Shiva Purana, Vayu Purana, Brahmanda Purana and the Mahabhagavata Upapurana. Shiva Sahasranama Stotra that appears in Book 13 of the Mahabharata is said to be the main hymn that is used by Shiva devotees and those who follow the Hindu traditions and rituals. In this version, when Yudhisthira asks Bhishma about the thousand names of Lord Shiva, Bhishma proclaims his ignorance and Lord Krishna recites the 1008 names of Lord Shiva to Yudhisthira.

Among the poojas performed to the Graceful Lord Shiva in Shukla Paksha (15 moon days from new moon to full moon) and Krishna Paksha (15 moon days from full moon to new moon) the evening of the Trayodasi (thirteenth moon day) is called "Pradosham". Pradosham means the removal of sins. It comes once in fifteen moon days. These times are the windows of opportunity to remove karma or karmic energies that limit our potential in this current life. It is the time that Shiva absorbs the karma from people. Be in a meditative mode during Pradosham time and Pray Lord Shiva to invoke His Blessings. Praying in this time, chanting Shiva Sahasranama, will free us from sins and gives Moksha, hence the name Pradosha.
