August 8th - Grand Guru Raghavendra Swamy Aaradhana - Drive-thru Darshan - Guidelines

Saturday, 8th August 2020 11.00 am to 3.00 pm

With the grace of Sri Krishna, Mukhyaprana, Rayaru and the guidance of Shri Swamiji we are happy to announce that we will be celebrating Guru Raghavendra Swamy Aaradhana Mahotsava on August 8th. The good news is that you will be able to visit the temple and participate in the event. However, given the pandemic restrictions, we have come up with a unique way of allowing our devotees to come to the temple, staying safe and participate. This year, you can attend the Mahotsava in a drive-thru manner!!

Seva/Darshana timings on August 8th - 11.00 am to 3.00 pm. Please wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines and stay safe.

Vehicle Entry: All vehicles/cars to enter the parking lot of the temple from the adjacent building entry access (205 May Street). Vehicles will enter the temple parking lot and line up ("darshan queue") in clearly marked lanes. Entry into the temple premises directly from May Street will be closed. All entry will be from the adjacent building. There will be signs posted and volunteers available to help you.

Brindavana darshana and Utsava Moorthi: Once you are in the "darshan queue", the front desk will be part of the drive-thru where you can sponsor the seva. As you approach the Manatapa please leave footwear inside the car and offer the prayers from the car or stepping out of the car. Please do not enter the temple.

Maha Prasada and Mantrakshate brought to you! Our volunteers will be ready to serve the boxed Maha Prasada and Mantrakshate while you exit onto May street. Please do not park the car in the temple premises.

Sponsorship while you are in your vehicle: Please sponsor any of the pujas and/or Annadana. We will have the front desk ready on August 8th and we will ensure seva/sankalpa is performed on your behalf.  To make it safe and easy, you can sponsor without getting down from your vehicle, our volunteers will come to your vehicle and collect details. We recommend that you bring checks (in favor of SRCF) or cash for your sponsorship to make the process faster.

Vehicle Exit: All vehicles will exit onto May Street directly from the temple parking lot. In other words, entry is from the adjacent building parking lot, exit is from the main parking lot of the temple

Seva/Darshana timings - 11.00 am to 3.00 pm. Please wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines and stay safe
