Sri Saibaba Temple Society Of Ohio Lewis Center
In 1999 three families started Bhajans on Every Thursday and over a period of time to perform Bhajans for Baba. Over a period of time more and more devotees started participating in the Bhajans and soon a need was felt for a bigger place where more number of devotees could pray to Baba on a regular basis.
This led to the formation of The Sri Saibaba Temple Society of Ohio as a non-profit organization in 2002, with the charter to build a temple in Ohio.
In 2003 the Society leased premises in the New Market Mall on a temporary basis to commence Mandir operations on full time basis.
Initially the Temple was being run only by volunteers and later on in 2004 a priest was hired to perform all the services to Baba. Today the temple is open 7 days a week and all 4 Aarathi’s are being performed regularly to Baba.
Shri Sai Baba is revered as one of the greatest saints ever seen in India, endowed with unprecedented powers, and is worshipped as a God incarnate. (SAI meaning Sakshaat Ishwar) – GOD THE ABSOLUTE
This mysterious Fakir first made HIS appearance in Shirdi as a youth and remained there throughout His long life. HE transformed the lives of those who met Him and continuously is doing so even after His Samadhi in 1918 for those whose hearts are touched by His love and who pray and call Him at any emergency in life for HIS blessings.
Baba stated that His mission is to “give blessings” without discrimination to all, and He proves it in myriad ways by healing the sick, saving lives, protecting the vulnerable, averting accidents, granting offspring, facilitating financial gain, bringing people into harmony within themselves and with each other and, above all, in effecting the spiritual evolution and transformation of those who came to him as the last resort.
