Sai Sai Temple – Pleasanton

The Sai Baba temple in Pleasanton is organizing its one year anniversary celebration on Sunday, September 14th. The day is full of activities with Bhajans, Dance Performance by children, etc. Sai Baba Temple PleasantonSai Sai Temple, Pleasanton The attendance at the temple has steadily been increasing over the past year. The weekly high point is considered to be the usual Thursday Aarti between 7:45 and 9:00. The temple is open everyday morning and evening.
The temple was formed as a break away from the Sri Datta Sai Mandir, San Ramon when 6 or 7 volunteers pooled resources and took up a location on rent in Pleasanton at the Hopyard exit, near Home Depot. To their credit, you don’t see any names – only silent volunteer work towards their purpose.
The temple is always looking for volunteers, or you can sign up to contribute towards the wish list.
So if you live in the area, a good place to make a spiritual call to, especially on Thursday evenings. You will also get a feel of the community, see kids helping each other in their own little area with color crayons, volunteers helping with prasadam (food) and some others hanging outside.
