Shiva Sai Mandir
The mandir is a two floor building which contains the Baba temple on the ground level and the Jesus temple on the first floor. This is a very unique constellation in India, having Christian and Hindi deities in the same building.
The Shiva Sai Mandir is a quiet powerful place, with cool marble floors and a very peaceful divine vibration permeating the entire sacred space. Many students have spent many hours and days and months meditating here. There is also Swami’s Chair, the wooden rocking chair which Swami would sit in while he spoke to his students and while the Bhajans were going every night.
Each morning before sunrise the Priests wash the gleaming white marble Baba murti (enlivened statue), and this washing, called an Abishek, not only washes Baba every day, watching this process also is an opportunity to wash your own karma through Baba’s loving soul dharma. As this morning Abishek is finishing up, the eastern morning sun shines through the front doors. Many students like to sit in the Mandir garden facing east and meditate as the sun rises in the supremely quiet peaceful setting.
There is a noon Arathi, and at 9pm after an hour of Bhajans, the gentle Priests conduct one more Arathi for Baba and then they close the curtains around the Baba stage for the night, and lock the doors to the temple.
"This place is born with the Sri Chakra. This place is the Lakshmi place. Whoever touches this ground or enters inside the mandir, automatically Maha Lakshmi she attacks as a virus, no problems. It's an open confidential secret. The main Mula Maha Sri Chakra is buried here nine feet two inches below the marble (pointing to the marble on the floor in front of the steps leading up to Baba's padukas). It is there! True." - Sri Kaleshwar
The Baba-Temple (Baba-Mandir) is the main temple of the ashram with a very powerful statue (Murti) of Shirdi Sai Baba. Baba here is a supreme caretaker and well wisher. It is easy to connect with him in meditation because of all of the devotional love (bhakti) expressed to him from Sri Kaleshwar, his students, staff, family and Baba’s Priests every day. Communication with Baba in your deep consciousness in the Baba Mandir is a true soul blessing and boon.
Sri Kaleshwar said: "He needs to call you to come. Even if you try your maximum best, it’s impossible to come here unless his order is there, ‘Yes, you can come. You can enter in the Shiva Sai Mandir.’ It means there’s a bond. If you want to see him, of course he also wants to see you too – that’s my strong surrender and belief system.”
“When I look at Baba’s whole life, he’s living in a small tiny temple in Dwarkamai and he’s taking a begging bowl and going in the street. When I look at that, it makes me remember to be humble, be polite, be conscious - never go egoistic." - Sri Kaleshwar
Sri Kaleshwar said: "Whenever I come down from my steps, I have a big picture, it makes me remember. He’s holding the begging bowl and a lady is offering the food. I don’t want to forget that picture, that scene. Whenever I keep remembering that, I’m simple, humble, that I know my limits, that all things are given from him - any day he can take it back. Whatever you’re suffering - that’s coming from him. Whatever things you’re winning, that’s also coming from him. He brought you here. Without Baba’s grace, it’s impossible for you to come here. He needs to call you to come. Even if you try your maximum best, it’s impossible to come here unless his order is there, ‘Yes, you can come. You can enter in the Shiva Sai Mandir.’ It means there’s a bond. If you want to see him, of course he also wants to see you too – that’s my strong surrender and belief system.”
The Jesus-Temple with the statues of Jesus, Mary and Dattatreya is located on the first floor above the Baba-Temple. Sri Kaleshwar spent a lot of time here, meditating near the Jesus murti (enlivened statue). It is a super high energy power spot with peaceful vibrations, and soft melodic spiritual music barely audible. Meditation here evokes deep trances and offers a unique chance to understand your soul dharma as a much deeper level. During programs the Jesus temple is open for special meditation hours and candle lighting processes to connect to the energy of Jesus Christ.
Some of Sri Kaleshwar's words on Jesus:
"I’m describing Jesus’ greatness here. He’s purely a man of true love with a forgiving nature. Jesus Christ was one hundred percent pure unconditional true love. ... He had incredible powers in his hands. He had the strongest high abilities; Jesus was pure love and forgiveness."
"Basically, the Jesus Christ is the most marvelous person on the planet and what he taught and what he experienced and what he really learned from India, from the ancient tradition, it is the supernatural formulas. The formulas are linked with the deep, deep, beautiful powerful vibrations of prayers.
"So, the point is, the Jesus Christ, the Buddha and Shirdi Sai Baba, any divine spiritual soul who came on the planet, they have a lot of amazing power to understanding the nature. To who really understands the nature, they really can command on the Mother. Command means that through the love they can change the karmic, the illusions, they can recycling the birth and death."
