Gurudev said, "a temple is that which gives an atmosphere for the human mind to quieten itself into the contemplation of the higher Reality".
Name of Deity: Bhakta Hanuman
Location: Rambodha, Sri Lanka
Consecrated on: 8th April 2001
It was Gurudev's Sankalpa, when he visited Sri Lanka in 1980, to set up a spiritual centre at Rambodha. Chinmaya Mission Sri Lanka, with the blessings of Gurudev, purchased 10 acres of land in 1981 at Wevanden Hills. He named the land "Rambodha". It is situated in the central part of Sri Lanka 3,200 ft above sea level, at a distance of 150 km from Colombo (3 and half hour). It was believed that Sri Hanumanji set his feet in these holy hills when he was in search of Sitaji.
Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda consecrated the temple on 8th April 2001 by performing Maha Kumbhabhishekam. This grand temple is now a great monument where the 16 ft idol of Lord Hanuman is the Moola Murti. Vinayakar, Dhyaneshwar and Sri Rama with Mother Sita and Lakshmana are the parivara murtis.
