Sri Ranganatha Temple Pomona NY

Sri Ranganatha Temple Pomona NY

The idea of having an exclusive place of worship in the USA for Sriman Narayana had taken shape in August, 1985 at the birthday celebrations of the 44th Jeeyar of Sri Ahobila Mutt (His Holiness, Sri Mukkur Azhagiyasingar). Our beloved Founder Acharya commanded Dr. Venkat Kanumalla to build an exclusive temple in the USA for Shri Ranganayaki and Lord Sri Ranganatha to propagate the concept of Saranagati – Absolute Surrender to Lord Sriman Narayana.Sri Ranganatha Seva Samithi was registered in the state of NY on Oct 8, 1987. Soon after, Utsava Vigrahas of the present Sri Ranganatha, Sri Devi, Bhu Devi, Mahalakshmi and Andal prana pratishtha was performed at the Dasavatharam Sannidhi in Srirangam, India in the presence of the 44thJeeyar. These Vigrahas were air lifted to New York. For the next 12 years, the Divya Mangala Vigrahas blessed Venkat Kanumalla at his residence by having Daily Aradhana. During these 12 years, Venkat swamin and several dedicated volunteers reached out to the devotees to raise the much needed funds for the construction work to begin. 5 acres of land in Pomona, New York was acquired for building the temple.

Temple Philosophy: 
The Temple follows the Visishtadvaita Philosophy as given by Bhagavad Sri Ramanujacharya, as elaborated by Sri NigamAntha Maha Desika and as currently followed by the Jeers of Sri Ahobila Mutt, India.

Utsavams (Religious Festivals):
