Shravan month starts Sunday July 27th. It is considered one of the holiest month in the Hindu calendar. Indeed every day of this month is considered auspicious. This month is especially significant for worshiping Lord Shiva.
At the Shirdi Saibaba Temple at SRIM center, recently consecrated by our beloved Amma, an 18" Banalinga (naturally formed Linga from the Narmada river) has been placed by Amma in the altar in front of Shirdi Baba.
Performing abhishekam (with milk and water) to Lord Shiva (in the form of Banalinga) is extremely auspicious in the Shravan month. Our resident priest Pandit Hari Kafley is keeping the temple open everyday from 5 PM to 7 PM especially for this purpose.
I would like to encourage all the devotees to visit the temple as often as possible in the Sharavan month (July 27th to August 25th). Somwar (Monday) is Lord Shiva's day, so if possible try to go to the temple every Monday during the Shravan month.
Please call Pandit Hari Kafley (404-453-4937) to get more details.

Dear Amma’s children,
With Amma's grace, on Feb 28, 2013 we had our second Narayana Seva at the Atlanta Pine Street shelter. We prepared 600 sacks containing PBJ sandwich, chips, fruit, napkin, and spoon. We served hot lentil soup along with the sack full of food plus a water bottle to over 450 residents at the shelter, many of whom returned for seconds until all the food was gone! We had Amma's soothing voice chanting Mrutyunjaya Mantra throughout the service. The residents enjoyed the food and thankful to Amma and all you for your care and compassion that makes this Narayana Sea possible every month.
