With blessings from Sri Swamiji and Sri Hanuman, the Hanuman Jayanti celebrations on April 19, 2008 in Frisco were a grand success. Hanuman Jayanti was organized by Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple which is a part of Datta Yoga Center (DYC). DYC is a charitable organization founded by Sri Ganapti Sachcidananda Swamiji of Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Mysore , India . The event was attended by over 1000 devotees from all over the metroplex and other cities such as Houston , Austin and San Antonio .

The function, which is an annual event, was the first public event held by the Hanuman Temple after purchasing the 10 acre land in Frisco. There were 2 beautiful Hanuman moorthies that were worshipped. We truly felt Sri Hanuman's divine presence with us during this auspicious event. The orange Hanuman murthy is a replica of an 85 foot Hanuman which Sri Swamiji built in His ashrama in Trinidad . The 85 foot Hanuman is the world's tallest Hanuman outside of India . The sthapathi who built the 85 foot Hanuman also created this beautiful replica which arrived in Frisco one week ago and was hand-carved especially for this event! The pink Hanuman was sent to Frisco on Thursday by Sri Swamiji Himself. This Hanuman was carved in Jaipur and then was sent to and worshipped at the Trinidad Ashram, and now it is right here in Frisco!!

The full day event had many pujas including Abhikeskam, Samuhika archana, and Vaada mala archana. Two very capable priests lead the function. The morning pujas were lead by Sri Srinivasa Sastry who is the head priest in Swamiji's Baton Rouge temple. The evening program was lead by Ramacharyulu of Dallas. Hanuman Chalisa parayana was offered by many local Hindu groups. This was followed by bhajan performances by over 150 talented children, recitation of slokas from the divine Ramayana, melodious instrumentals on the saxophone and excellent vocal performances by noted local artists. The bhajans were so melodious and heart warming that the audience was spellbound.

Decorative crafts prepared by DYC Members, sarees which adorned Devi at various Datta Anagha kshetras, custom jewelery & book stall booths were set up and were busy all days with sales. A fundraising raffle was inaugurated with the first prize of a 2009 Lexus RX350 SUV from Park Place Lexus; the SUV was on display at the venue.

All day coffee & tea was provided and with maha prasadam was served both in the afternoon and the evening after Arati.
