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 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 19 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  with the blessing of  his Gurudev Pujapada Nischalananda Saraswati  Shankaracharya.His vast experience of more then 16 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.

Few lines about the site: As a spiritual site and non profit site this services are performed in a good faith and for the satisfaction of the Supreme Lord and not for the money .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. 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. Whatever service might be that you need  it requires priest,knowledge,energy ,effort,money ,items ,additional material ,travel expenses etc…Wedding  services  what we offer is for or  from the local Hindu Gaudiya Math temple in Traiskirchen  and like that non profit.We help people and we acccept donations and that is how we function.Nowadays people do not 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 .In those days 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 thanks to king and his protection. Now nobody cares for the priests in fact people make fun of  them and accuse  them for being greedy just because they  ask the money for  pujas .When  somebody needs a puja or wedding   first question which they will ask is following how much you will charge for Puja?.In this age  priests  are forced to work in companies to maintain themselves and this is reality.Everyone  wants to fill up the pocket but  no one   thinks about the God. Nowadays people tend to demand  low cost,express Puja just for the name sake so they can say we did it . People having Restaurants  and Companies  are pretending to be very poor and do ceremonies for the name sake trying to exploit the priests . Purusha Sukta says  : brahmanosya mukhamasit From His face (or the mouth) came the brahmanas.So Vishnu eats through brahmins and except through brahmins. Between two leg beings brahmins are the best.Not to be mistaken we are talking about genuine brahmins who are practicing and living pious and good life.Ceremonies are meant to improve the purity in the heart of the people and not the fill up the pockets.
