Annual Puja Sponsorship

As we celebrate and usher in this New Year we again invite you to become an annual sponsor. The Annual Sponsorship is a unique opportunity; the sustained performance of such Seva will enrich you in all respects. When you are unable to attend a puja, the priest will perform the Puja on your behalf so that you and your family still benefit from it.

We urge you to generously participate in the Annual Sponsorship program this year to help us provide services and facilities to Houston area devotees during these difficult times. Click here to sponsor and view the various annual sevas available.
