CHHINDWARA - Holy Birthplace of H.H. Shri Mataji
Jai Shri Mataji
By the blessings of Shri Mataji, the entire land and the structure at the Holy birthplace of our most Holy Mother Shri Mataji at Chhindwara, M.P., India was acquired by the H.H. SHRI MATAJI NIRMALA DEVI SAHAJA YOGA TRUST, India, on 14 th July 2005. At the time of purchase, the building required massive repair and restoration. It was ensured that wherever possible existing building was restored. Where replacement was necessary, similar material and products were used. Renovation work at the ‘Shrine’ is now complete and the building is restored to its original beauty. Today the Shrine undoubtedly is the best building at Chhindwara.
Besides the stupendous renovation task blended with necessary restoration aesthetics in the Holy Shrine, the Holy birthplace of Shri Mataji, the sanctum sanctorum, a huge meditation hall adjacent to the Shrine has also been constructed within the same premises. The meditation hall provides spacious basement, ground floor and mezzanine floor. It can accommodate about 500 Yogis at a time to meditate. The hall is bedecked with exquisite Rajasthan pink stone work at its exterior and majestic serene interior. The sanctum sanctorum as well as the meditation hall received its blessings by our most Holy Mother Shri Mataji during recent visit to Chhindwara during the 85 th Birthday Puja celebrations.
The Trust has also acquired another 35 acres of land at Linga, (10 kilometer/6.5 miles from Chhindwara on Nagpur-Chhindwara road) to build an ‘International Sahaja Yoga Ashram’. It is situated on a hilly terrain adjoining a dam and a reservoir surrounded by sprawling scenic beauty. The International Sahaja Yoga Ashram was blessed by the Holy Feet of Shri Mataji in March 2008 during the 85 th Birthday Puja Celebrations held at Chhindwara. Shri Mataji resided in ‘Nirmalasthan’ a cottage built for Her. The majestic campus accentuates one’s seeking spiritual ascent by providing adequate tranquility, peaceful and meditative environment. As on date, a few of the proposed permanent structures have already been erected at the site. New Construction is required in the Ashram complex to accommodate about 250 people. Meditation Hall, library, modern museum, seminar rooms, dining facilities, kitchen etc. are also required. A well conceived plan has been made for this.
As approved by Param Pujya Shri Mataji, this Ashram has been named as “H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Sahaja Yoga World Ashram”. Mr. Lim a Sahaja Yogi Architect from Malaysia, a project team headed by Shri Dinesh Rai, Trustee, H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Sahaja yoga Trust, and other Sahaja yogis and Yoginis from India and other countries are working under the guidance of Sir C.P. Srivastava to actualize this project.
This is a historic project as it will be a place of Supreme pilgrimage for all the Sahaja yogis of the world. It is, therefore, most important for us to see that this project is completed as early as possible. To achieve this, substantial Financial help is needed.
An ‘Appeal’ is, therefore, made to all Sahaja Yogis of the world to come forward and contribute to the best of their capability, financially and otherwise so that the Holy task taken in hand by us at Chhindwara is completed quickly.
