Sponsor the Travel of Three Hand-carved Murtis From India
Your donation helps to bring the Shakambhari Devi Temple Murtis from India.
There is a special opportunity for people to contribute. We are preparing to bring three large black granite murtis from India. Swamiji commissioned these several years back, and carving is being completed in Kanchi, India under the expert guidance of Shri Jayendra Sthapati. We are now arranging preparations to pack and ship the murtis. The three murtis which are being completed are of Ganapati, Shivalingam, and Dhanvantari. Please scroll down to learn more and to sponsor the murtis.
Update - 9-24-2022 - We have raised enough money to pay for all three murtis and money has been sent to the Sthapati to pack them into crates for shipping. Due to the increased prices of gas after the covid pandemic, shipping will cost somewhat more than expected. We still need to raise an additional $1,600 to cover shipping costs to bring all three murtis to Virginia. We are very close to meeting our goal and still expect to have the murtis here soon.
