Proposed New Temple

"With Baba's infinite blessings NESSP had earlier crossed an important fundraising milestone towards securing land for the proposed, new Shirdi Sai Temple and Mission Center. We want to share a very positive development towards the realization of our this shared vision. Based on the current financials we have secured a $3.5 Million Line of Credit from a Leading financial Institution. Baba's grace has brought us closer to our goal. We have also obtained the land use permits from the town of Groton and are working to obtain the building permits as well.

Our goal is to inaugurate the temple by 2018 in concert with the centennial celebration of Shri Sai Sansthan, Shirdi. We need your continued help and support and we need to close our Divine Leaf program by raising 1000 Leaves by the Spring of 2018. We also have a matching Donor program and any funds that we get will be matched by a group of generous donors. So please support generously."


The proposed new Shirdi Sai Temple and Mission Center is not merely a structure but a whole ecosystem that provides individual soul nourishment as well as connects the community built around the teachings of Shirdi Sai Baba. It provides an environment for fostering togetherness and a platform and space for cultural, educational, charitable and religious activities. The new Shirdi Sai Temple and Mission Center ensures that our young ones have the opportunity to remain connected to their roots even as they find their place in the world and grow in their achievements.

The proposed Shirdi Sai Temple and Mission Center will have the following features :

  • Temple and Prayer Hall as well as Dwarakamai and Chavadi
  • A Multipurpose Hall to support various community events
  • Classrooms to provide cultural nourishment and education to kids
  • Longer term plans include Auditorium and Library

Current Status

  • Have acquired land and signed the Purchase and Sale Agreement
  • Teams of Architect, Engineering, Legal and Accounting Firms actively engaged
  • Site plan permit obtained. Working closely on obtaining the building permit.
  • Seeking equal amount of devotee contributions to secure the release of $500 thousand matching based donations pledged for next phase activities
