Celebrations

shiva1Shiva Sai Mandir celebrates holidays based on calculations specifically for the Western hemisphere, so our timing may be one or two days different from the Indian calendar.

Our celebrations are simple, family oriented and joyfully participatory.  Each celebration is connected with a community seva project which brings the blessing of our celebration tangibly into the world.
