|Event Paaduka Puja|
This event is conducted by SRI SAI PADHUGA TRUST, MADURAI, whose President is Shri. Srinivasan Chettiar. This event was started in 1993 and from then on this event has been celebrated every year in Prashanthi Nilayam where the number of members have increased. The members along with their Paadukas assemble together and in the auspicious Presence of Bhagawan Baba perform the Paaduka Puja. There are many devotees from abroad who participate in this event.
What is the significance of the Padukas? Head is the most important part of the body. That is why it is crowned. Such a precious head cannot go anywhere without the help of the feet. The feet bear the weight of the head.
On the next day after the puja the members carry the Paadukas and come in a procession to Kulwantrai Hall. Baba Blesses every memberís paadukas with grains of rice. This event is a spectacular event and the Golden Chariot was presented on this event and all were blessed to see the Divine Darshan of the Lord. The Paadukas are taken back by the members and revered everyday in their homes.
Why should I be burdened with this immense burden of a Golden Chariot? I do not at anytime desire such things. Instead of this, you may spend any amount of money on social service activities.
