Sri Sharada Temple, Cays Rd, Stroudsburg, PA 18360.
Sringeri Vidya Bharati Foundation (SVBF) is established as an international extension of the ancient Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri, Karnataka State, India.
The Foundation functions under the direct guidance of the Jagadguru Shanakaracharya, His Holiness Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamigal of the Sringeri Sharada Peetham.
Its name combines the names of Swami Bharati Tirtha, the presiding Jagadguru of Sringeri, and His Guru, Swami Abhinava Vidyatirtha. The word Vidya means "knowledge" and Bharati means "Sharada, the Goddess of all learning". This is the first affiliated Shankara Mutt of Sringeri outside India.
The Foundation purchased a 35 acre property in the scenic lush green Pocono mountains of Pennsylvania at Stroudsburg to set up the Sringeri Sadhnana Center.
The Pratisthapana Utsavam of Goddess Sharadamba, Maha Ganapati, and Adi Sankara was conducted on July 13, 1995. It comprises:
A Shrine for Sri Ganesha, Sri Sharada and Sri Adi Sankara and Sadhana Center for the understanding and propagation of our philosophy, and values.
It is extremely committed to foster our Sanatana Dharma among global communities in general, and in the Continental United States in particular.
SVBF is in the process of constructing a new temple in the same property. The Bhoomi Pooja Ceremony was performed on August 6th 2005 and construction of the temple and priest quarters commenced on April 16th, 2006.
