Maryland Sri Bhaktha Anjaneya Policies
There will be no cost-based system. Whether it is a simple archana or a big Pooja in the Temple or even a private religious event, neither the Temple nor the priests will ask for money. Any monetary contribution for a religious event is purely a donation to the Temple and is totally voluntary.
Strict adherence to all religious ceremonies. Moola Vigraha Abhishekam (religious bath) is practiced in the morning, every day. The deities are presented with Special Nadaswaram Seva in the morning and Evening Poojas.
a) Temple will only use dairy products (milk, yogurt, etc.) from OUR GOSHAALA for all abhishekams, neivedhyam (food offerings) and prasaadams. NO EXTERNAL MILK PRODUCTS WILL BE USED.
b) If the devotees wish, they can sponsor the milk of our Goshaala for the abhishekams. Devotees can bring flowers, fruits or dry items to Poojas.
c) Food served on the premises will not use dairy products from abroad. Our menu will reflect the changes in sweets and other items to reflect that.
Only the food cooked inside the madapalli (sacred kitchen) of the Temple will be offered to the Lord. The Temple will have a religious cook who will prepare prasaadams and neivedyams according to religious guidelines. Devotees who wish to take prasaadam at the Temple will ordain it to the Temple.
