Sai Samsthan of Central Illinois is Hindu Religious societies engaged in spreading and promotes the philosophy of Shri Shirdi Sai Baba.
We aim at spreading Saibaba's teachings and messages, at our Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Mandir in the Central Illinois (Bloomington) and to facilitate worship services similar to Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Mandir in Shirdi, India.
With the grace of Shiridi Sai Baba, a few of the devotees came together to start Thursday Aarthi’s in late 2009. They took turns in hosting the Thursday Aarthi’s. They longed for a dedicated place for Sai Baba in central Illinois where all the Sai Devotees can come together on a regular basis. A place where all the 4 Aarthi’s can be performed to Sai Baba like Shiridi. Volunteers contacted Chicago Sai Mandir for guidance in starting the Sai Mandir, while looking for a temporary place for Thursday Aarthis. Chicago Sai Mandir agreed to the request to make Central Illinois Sai Samsthan as a chapter of Sai Samsthan USA.
