ॐ सांई राम - World's first glass temple in Malaysia

 
.

 
Today , we will continue our journey to the various temples all over the world and pay our respects to all the Gods and Godessess and shrines.. Due to personal reasons, I have not been able to post messages since the past 2-3 days but Thanks to My Sai-- this message would not have been possible without His grace.. Today is thursday and I had tears in my eyes when I came across these wonderful pictures that I guess Baba wanted me to share with all of You..
 
Imagine 300,000 pieces of finely cut coloured glass carefully placed together to create intricate designs. The sight will amaze any beholder.
 
World's First Glass Hindu Temple in Malaysia. This is just an outstanding Glass Work. A Must See
This is Malaysia's (and World's) first glass temple which is called as Arulmigu Sri Raja Kaliamman Temple. This is loacted in, Jalan Tebrau, Johor Baru. This Temple is going to be the Top Tourist attraction in Malaysia.This Glass temple is scheduled to be opened officially on October 25th, 2009.
95 per cent of the temple's walls, domes, pillars and ceiling have been constructed with over a million pieces of colourful glass imported from Belgium, Japan and Thailand.
 
The total cost of the temple is roughly three million ringgits (approximately $1 Million US Dollars)
All glass pieces of glass pieces were carefully crafted by 9 Myanmar workers, symbols such as Swastika, Namam and Sri Chakra were crafted from the glass pieces in seven colours.
 
Sultan of Johor awarded the land for constructing this Temple in 1922, and it was renovated in 1996.
The funds to construct this Temple was raised through public donations and community programmes.
 
This Temple is completely air-conditioned and can accomodate about 1500 devotess.

May Lord Buddha teach us the importance of good karma in our lives..
 
Now, do u know why these pictures touched my heart and my soul. I hope they did the same for you too. May Shri Shirdi Sai be with us always..
Nine Modes of Devotion-Worshipping Sai's Feet
Worshipping the Feet of Sainath is a mode of devotion. One should overcome one's own pride, self-respect and serve the Lotus Feet of Sainath. During the process of worship and prayer, several devotees used to offer the holy water in which His Feet were washed. That holy water is capable of curing several diseases and even freeing devotees from earthly bonds. To satisfy the desire of Dasganu, Baba caused the confluence of Ganges and Yamuna rivers spring from His feet. Although Dasganu was able to see the miraculous sight and wet his head by sprinkling the holy water on the head, he was hesitant to sip it. Baba's grace was showered on him to that extent only. We, who are sinking in this vast ocean of life and unable to reach the shore, should behold the Feet of Baba and seek salvation.The devotees of Shirdi used to sweep every inch of the path-way touched by the Feet of Baba, sprinkled cow dung water and beautiful patterns in lime powder were drawn on the ground to give a festive look. They used to spread sheets of cloth on the path leading from Masjid to Chavadi so that His tender Feet should not get hurt. This service is for getting bliss. They worshipped His Feet in different forms to derive pleasure out of the service. Let us worship those beautiful pair of His Lotus Feet with fragrant flowers and get blessed by His divine love

Sai SatCharitra - the paanpoyi

 
ॐ सांई राम

Sai SatCharitra - the paanpoyi

Aum Shri Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai!

Most of the readers would be thinking, what is this paanpoyi. Paanpoyi is a word used in Shri Sai SatCharitra for the life story of Shirdi Sai Baba written in Shri Sai SatCharitra. It says, "This life story of Sai is, to the devotee, is a paanpoyi of His nectar-sweet stories. With Sai's grace, drink deeply and to your heart's content, to ward off the scorching heat of this conflagration that worldly life is.

Indeed this is so true. First the meaning of paanpoyi. Paanpoyi is a Marathi word which means " The stand or a shed erected for the purpose of supplying water to the travelers. This kind of sheds were and are used widely in India with the purpose of quenching the thirst of travelers traveling on feet. There are many devotees who visit Temples or a shrine or a pilgrimage on foot. It is heavy on the physical system, and the most required thing during that time is drinking water.

Truely Sai Satcharitra is a paanpoyi. Not a paanpoyi of drinking water but a paanpoyi of Sai Baba's love and grace. It is a shed where the devotee gets to rest in Baba's love. It is a place from where Sai Baba's grace flows constantly, the devotees just have to read the sacred stories of Sai with attention and putting aside all reservation.

The worldly life has it's own set of struggle, agony, striving. The mind and the soul sometimes get too tired in the scorching heat. The sacred stories of Shri Sai SatCharitra does give solace at these times. There are so many incidents recorded of the same.


Those looking for spiritual or worldly contentment. Shri Sai Satcharitra is a source of divine grace. Dig for the wealth and carry it away by cart-loads.   Yes a little digging (reading) is needed. Even if one is neat a well full with fresh ever flowing water, one need to do little and actually drink the water. One needs to drink that deep quenching grace. We are always in need of something. Something for fulfillment. We look for money, good relationships, good health. Even with all these the need of fulfillment still remains. What is this something which we are looking for? Many get the money they need, the relationships they had always dreamed for. Yet not the money nor the relationship bring about the total quench. Many just settles with life is this set of unfulfilled struggle and does not look for something that could possibly quench or bring about a fulfillment. Many just keep looking for more material wealth and more relationships. As these are also a goal for fulfillment Sai Baba grants these wishes to devotees. Sai Baba used to say, "I give them what they ask for, until they ask for what I want to give." Lucky ones finds soon that all they have been asking for is not enough. Even after attaining all they asked for something within is still empty. It needs to be filled. Then they ask for the God's or Guru's grace. To get merged in the God's grace, to experience the fullness of God's or Guru's grace within and without.


The paanpoyi is mentioned in Sai SatCharitra Chapter 25. Next is a sacred stories of Sai Baba, which tells why Sai Baba does not fulfill all desires of devotees? Which we will see in following post. 

Shri SadChitAnand SadGuru SaiNath Maharaj Ki Jai!

Akshardham temple[must see pics]


ॐ सांई राम
 

Om Sai Ram!
Akshardham is a Hindu temple complex which has been located near the banks of River Yamuna, Delhi. The complex was inaugurated on 6th November 2005 by the president of India, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam in the great presence of the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the leader of the Organization respocible for the creation of Akshardham Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
This temple has already attracted thousands of visitors from all over the world. Akshardham temple is also known as "Delhi Akshardham" or "Swaminarayan Akshardham".
Entry to the complex is free. But for exhibitions and light and sound show inside the complex, one has to take tickets.
 
Hall of Values
A modern feature of the complex is a set of three exhibition pavilions. The first is a walk-through hall of dioramas with audio-animatronics and light-and-sound shows. Each show shares a message about charity, integrity, non-violence, and other values
"Akshardham is a unique place in India as well as whole world. It is even more beautiful than what I had imagined. Taj Mahal is definitely beautiful, but this place, along with beauty, has a beautiful message."
Stone colonnade
The temple and its surrounding area are garlanded by a 3,000 ft (214 m)-long two-tiered stone colonnade. It features 1,152 pillars, 145 windows and 154 cupolas.
 
Indoor boat ride
A 12-minute boat ride introduces visitors to India's ancient past. Traversing along an indoor river, visitors float by dioramas of a Vedic village and bazaar, the world's first university, and other historic re-creations.
The central feature of the complex is the ornately hand-carved stone temple, or mandir. Built according to ancient Vedic texts, and measuring 356 ft (109 m) long, 316 ft (96 m) wide and 141 ft (43 m) high, it is the world's largest comprehensive Hindu temple.

Giant-screen theatre
A large-format 40-minute film retraces the seven-year journey of Bhagwan Swaminarayan from his teenage years. He travelled alone and barefooted for more than 7,000 miles around India, into Nepal and Tibet, and through Myanmar and Bangladesh.
 
The Garden of India / Bharat Upvan is a huge garden featuring flora and fauna from all over the length and breadth India , from the Himalayas to the Kanyakumari, and the Deserts of Persia to the Jungles of Burma.
 
The Bharat Upvan also has statues and figures of India 's Kings, Warriors and Freedom Fighters, India 's National Figures, and India 's Women Personalities.

Over 60 acres of the complex comprise various forms of landscaping.

 
Lotus garden
One part is the Lotus Garden, a lotus-shaped sunken garden with messages from great world thinkers sharing their faith in God and humanity.
This temple combines several completely different and contrasting architectural styles of temple architecture in India -- Rajasthani, Orrisan, Gujarati and Jain -- into a pleasing whole.
Musical Fountains / Yagnapurush Kund
The Yagnapurush Kund is a fascinating combination of a Vedic yagna kund and a musical fountain. It is the world's largest yagna kund measuring 300' X 300' with 2,870 steps and 108 small shrines.

In its center lies an 8-petaled lotus shaped yagna kund designed according to the Jayaakhya Samhita of the Panchratra scripture.Its perfect geometric forms testify to ancient India 's ancient knowledge in mathematics and geometry.
 
At night, the fountain comes alive with a colourful, musical show depicting the Hindu concept of interdependency between humans, nature and God.

 
The Mandir is built to last 10,000 years.

 
Pari Krama


 
Vibhuti Mandovar
 
Akshardham Temple is a beautiful place of worship which provides sanctum of peace to one and all.

Elephant plinth
The temple stands on a 1,070 ft.-long plinth of 148 full-sized elephants carved entirely from stone. Together, they weigh 3,000 tonnes.

 
Exterior carvings
 
The outer wall of the temple is profusely covered with 200 stone figures of India's sages and intricate depictions of nature.



 

The monument was built after over 300 million man hours of services rendered by 11,000 volunteers, sadhus and artisans.
 
Interior carvings
The temple is a fusion of pink sandstone on the outside and white marble on the inside, but with no structural steel used anywhere. Pink stone symbolizes bhakti (devotion) in eternal bloom and white marble of absolute purity and eternal peace.
The interior is filled with 234 ornately carved pillars, 9 ornate domes, and intricately designed ceilings
 
In total, there are more than 20,000 carved figures.
 

Temple sanctum
Enshrined in the temple's inner sanctum is an 11 ft.-high gilded murti (sacred image) of Bhagwan Swaminarayan, the deity to whom the temple and complex are dedicated. Other images include those of popular Hindu deities and spiritual leaders of the Swaminarayan tradition.
Vedic consecration
BAPS Swaminarayan Akshardham was the vision and creation of His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj, spiritual leader of BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha. He ceremoniously consecrated the temple and complex according to ancient Vedic rituals on 6 November 2005.
 


May all the Gods and Godessess bless our souls and give us all a place near their holy feet.May our devotion towards them teach us to be kind and loving towards everyone we meet.
