As many of you know, Prasad served every Sunday after the Aarti has been an integral part of our Temple since 1989 (34 years), which upholds a unique tradition and is very popular among devotees. Each year a total of 52 sponsors (families, group of families or groups) from different regions continue the tradition.

This program has been successful only because of your continuous and unwavering support, and for that we are sincerely thankful.  To manage it better so that no family is deprived of getting their preferred hosting date and no Sunday remains without a host; we request you to sign up for prasad hosting at your earliest convenience.  

Below are various links that guide you with  full information as well as to sign up.
