Hindu Astrology in Salzburg


www.austriaviennapuja.com and Puja Services in Vienna (Austria)  was founded by Austrian Sahadev Pandit in 2014 as a non profit site . As a child, all that Sahadev Pandit could dream of, was becoming a priest. This led him to join the local Pancha Tattva Temple in Slovenia in 1999. Having met his guru Pujapad Bhakti Vaibhav Puri Goswami Maharaj  (Odissa) and received instruction under the tutelage of  Pujapada Nischalananda Saraswati Shankaracharya (Odissa), Sahadev Pandit studied mantras from the Rig and Yajur Vedas, Astrology, healing methods that incorporated the use of herbs, and the know-how of performing Pujas/Homams.  His devotion bore fruit when he established Austria Vienna Puja site  in 2014 to meet the religious needs of the Hindu community in Austria. He is considered to be the best Hindu priest in Austria. With over 17 years of experience to his credit, Sahadev Pandit has traveled internationally to perform pujas, religious ceremonies, weddings, homams and has also been a part of grand functions.

One of the most beautiful places what he visited was a Mantralayam where he  received special blessings from Madhva Sapradaya Shri Raghavendra Swami (Mantralayam).At present he lives in Vienna where he is planning to open Shiva Temple  with the blessing of  his Gurudev Pujapada Nischalananda Saraswati  Shankaracharya.His vast experience of more then 17 years with different clients in his work as a Pujari(Priest) and Astrologer makes him a highly competent person or the instrument in the hands of God to help Humanity.

This site is meant to educate and en-light the people to follow the path of spirituality and righteousness. This is not a business making web site. As you may see we are not selling any products.You will also not find any advertisements on our site. Services which we are providing are the essence of the Hindu Religion . We provide guidance and  inspiration for all who are interested in self realization.  Nowadays people don t have the appreciation or  understanding for  Vedic  Hindu Ceremonies .In olden days people used to be generous  towards  priests so priests was very inspired to perform all the ceremonies free of costs  .Also priests was independent, no any priest worked in company or in hospital  because they were protected from the king and they had their own land and resources of course  thanks to king and his protection that was functioning nicely. Now nobody cares for the priests in fact people make fun of  them and accuse  them for asking the money for  Pujas .When  somebody needs a Puja or wedding  then they call priest and the first question they will ask is how much is costing ?Just like in supermarket.Since we live in the age where everything is valued by the money including persons such a question is completely normal to expect in this context and in this age .In this age  priests  are forced to work in the companies to maintain themselves  instead of living fully to the spiritual level .Unfortunately that are  undeniable  facts.Everyone want to fill up the pocket but nobody  thinks about the God. Nowadays people tend to demand ceremonies with blessings below the  price of Alu Subji .That is how much priest services are estimated to be worth of.People having Restaurants  and Companies  are trying to bargain for 20 Euro on the pretext that they are very poor. Purusha Sukta says  : brahmanosya mukhamasit From His face (or the mouth) came the brahmanas.So Vishnu eats through brahmins and accept through brahmins. Between two leg beings brahmins are the best.Here we are talking about genuine brahmins who are practicing and living pious and good life.Ceremonies and Priest  are meant to improve the purity in the heart of the people and not the fill up the pockets.
