TEMPLES & SHRINES

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: Lord Veera Hanuman
  • Location: Sidhbari, Himachal Pradesh, India
  • Consecrated on: 10th October 1982
 
 

The valley of the Siddhas, Sidhbari nestling in the lap of the Himalayas is an awe-inspiring showcase of nature & soul. Swami Chinmayananda chose Sidhbari as a suitable location for a Sandeepany in the Himalayas. Pujya Gurudev must have felt the divine vibrations of the place where Kapila Muni once lived.

Construction began in 1979 and as per Gurudev's Sankalpa, a Veera Hanumanji's idol was to be installed. The well-known sculptor, Sri Kashinath of Shimoga sculpted the cement concrete idol of Hanumanji in Veerasan posture. It is 25 ft tall and rests on a 7 ft granite pedestal. The idol was consecrated on 10th October 1982 by Pujya Gurudev.

Veera Hanumanji is seated at Sidhbari under the milky sky, open to the embrace of his father, Vayu, the Wind God. Hanumanji successfully keeps the damaging winds at bay. By worshipping the deity, one gains strength, courage, fame, alertness, eloquence and wisdom. As Swami Tejomayananda says, 'Lord Hanuman is the embodiment of all great divine qualities put together - Devotion, Dedication, Service, Dispassion, Strength, Humility, Knowledge and every other virtue!'

Once in five years a consecration ceremony (Mahamastakabhishekam) of the idol is performed for which devotees from all parts of the world gather.
