Pandit Sri B Rajagopalji was a frequent visitor to various places within US includingRichmond, VA to conduct yantra pujas and help in invoking spiritual values and prayer services for devotees inovercoming their day-to-day stress and tide different crisis. Pandit Sri B Rajagopalji had slowly built up a group of ardent devotees and volunteers that had varied interests in spirituality.
Despite various hardships for many of the volunteer families in the year 2007, everyone was supportive of the ideato build Shridi Sai Temple in Richmond, VA. Though everyone of the volunteer/devotee felt it was a momentoustask, it was everyone’s faith, that as Baba had inspired the thoughts to build a temple, he would continue to guideus in this spiritual journey and jumped the bandwagon with Mama, as Pandit Sri Rajagopalji is affectionately called.Various sites around Richmond, VA was inspected, and finally the current one in Manakin Sabot, VA was chosen byBaba to be his future home in Richmond. Sponsors came in from all directions to provide repayable loans, donationstowards the closing of the 5.7 acres land near the west end of Richmond. The closing of the land was completed inthe last week of May 2007 while efforts already started to hold the first yagnam in July 2007, under the ableguidance of our beloved and lovable, Poojya Sri V V Sridhar Guruji.
