I am a Vaishnava who lives in the U.S. and I want to send a donation to some of the famous Vaishnava temples of India. The problem I keep running into is that the vast majority either have no website or no option for this. The ones that I have found that do, usually only accept Indian bank transfers, few use anything else. Has anyone had a personal experience, or knows of a legitimate and reputable online puja service? Preferably I am looking for something that would allow me to choose options, such as sponsoring garlands, daily aarti, archana, or other seva. Also one that accepts PayPal would be preferable, but not necessary. If possible I would also like one that would ship any prasadam out of country to me, however, again that is not necessary. I am just looking for a way to sponsor seva at some of the Holy Dhama’s of Lord Vishnu and His avatars especially Lord Krishna as I am a Gaudiya Vaishnava. Especially any that are in Holy Dhama locations, such as Vrindavana or Uttar Pradesh, Mayapur or West Bengal, Jaipur, Haridwar, Dwarka, Kerala, Puri, etc.. I have searched endlessly for a full week now. I have found a few sites such as onlineprasada, epuja, Saranam, templeyatri, onlinetemple, ishwarabhakti, etc. I have also found a few government run sites, and tourism sites like gotirupati. My main concern with all these that I have found is that I want to make sure they are legitimate, and that my money will actually go to the seva I have specified. I have read a few articles saying that epuja is a fraud and that your money just gets pocketed. So if anyone can help me or point me in a direction it would be much appreciated!
