Offering Prasad

The Mandir cooks Prasad in house, no outside food offered to Baba.

The objective is to cook healthy, fresh vegetarian food, on a daily basis and reduce cooked food brought by devotees and sourced from caterers / restaurants.
Devotees who wish to participate in the Prasad program are requested to donate items like Basmati Rice, Ghee, Wheat, Rava and Dal etc., which can be used for Prasad preparation in Baba’s Mandir. Please consult the Prasad coordinators listed below or on the Contact Us page before bringing food donations to the Mandir.

  1. Satya Kolluri             (416) 786-7835
  2. Subbarao Korapaty  (647) 294-0455
  3. Surya Polimera        (416) 451-0925
  4. Raghu Manjapra      (416) 575-5312

Distribute Prasad to devotees

Devotees may offer Prasad to devotees at the Mandir to celebrate personal occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and other milestones. This is one way of celebrating your special occasions with Sai Bandhus in Toronto.  This is also a way to serve Baba by feeding His devotees.

Devotees may book any day of their choice for Prasad sponsorship, to celebrate personal occasions  as below:

  1. Morning Prasad (after Baba’s Abhishek)
  2. Noon Prasad (after Madhyan Aarthi)
  3. Evening Prasad (after Dhoop Aarthi)

It is not necessary that the entire cost of Prasad sponsorship has to be taken up by any one devotee. Devotees may donate any amount that they are comfortable with and the Prasad coordinators will do the rest. The Prasad coordinators may either try to find somebody else to join the sponsorship or arrange food as per Mandir’s guidelines.

The following are very popular days for Prasad sponsorship as there are many devotees in the Mandir:

  1. Thursdays: Noon (Madhyan Aarthi) and Evening (Dhoop Aarthi)
  2. Saturdays: Noon (Madhyan Aarthi) and Evening (Dhoop Aarthi)
  3. Sunday: Noon (Madhyan Aarthi)
  4. Monday to Sunday: Morning (Morning Aarthi)

Please ensure that you discuss and understand Mandir requirements (Prasad quantity, quality, consumables, etc.) with Prasad coordinators.

If you plan to bring Prasad for more than 50 people on any day, please inform the Prasad coordinators by email at prasad@theshirdisaimandir.ca. This will prevent wastage of Prasad.

Ensure that only fresh, home cooked vegetarian prasad is offered to Baba and His devotees.

Inspect food bought from restaurants as it could be stale and foul easily. There is also a likelihood that meat products may have been mixed with your order.

If possible, please take only one container per person and do not waste Prasad.

After eating Prasad, dispose off garbage in the waste bin and stack used plates / containers / glasses near the garbage bins as directed by volunteers.

Do not throw garbage on the Mandir premises or Mandir parking lot.
