Today we visited the Sri Bhaktha Anjaneya Temple also called as SBAT temple at Fingerboard Road, Fredricksburg, Maryland. One of the many priests Shri. Balakrishna Bhat had performed the Gruhapravesha of our home in 2008. He is from Vidyapeetha in Bangalore. He performs most rituals for us.
The main diety here Anjaneya.
The pratisthapana of the Brindavana was performed yesterday. Attached below are some pictures of the temple and if you are in the DC area, visit the temple.
Mantralya Swamiji is in Bangalore, and performed the Narasimha Jayanti Celebrations at Bangalore 5th block Rayara mutta. Take a look. Amazing pictures of Lord Narasimha.

The common interpretation of Pushyaarka Yoga is the combination of Pushya Nakshatra and Sunday.This common interpretation is when moon entering Pushya nakshatra on Sunday is PushyArka yoga .
Raghavendra Mutta says “On this Holy day one should Recite or Chant Guru Stotra ( Raghavendra Stotra)s, Singing songs will bring happiness and prosperity in your life.”
The significance of this day is also mentioned in Rayara Stotra – 27th Stanza.
Anyone who recites this holy Sri Raghavendra Stotram 108 times with intense devotion, on the occasion of solar/lunar eclipse or the combination of Sunday with the star Pushya, will be relieved of all evil influence, e.g., haunting etc. (27)
