A Beautiful Home for Hanuman!

How has Hanuman touched my life? It would take a poet like Tulsidas to explain. But Hanuman has been my ishta dev since 1986, when Ram Dass first came into my life, years after I first read "Be Here Now," through the grace of a Seva project in Los Angeles. 


Time flew by, and the river kept flowing, and eventually, kneeling next to Ram Dass one day on Maui, I was blessed with a name. "Anjani," he said firmly, his hand resting on my head, "that's who you are." Holding me with his timeless gaze, he said, "You are Hanuman's mother, Anjani, the Mother of Compassion, giving birth to compassion."  


For the past five years, a 3-foot tall, 90-pound Hanuman has stood on the altar at my little house in Oregon. He came through grace and magic, this embodiment of service and devotion, and his presence inspires, comforts, encourages, delights, and overwhelms me. Jai Jai Jai Hanuman!


The temple in Taos where Hanuman has lived is heavenly and singing to him there is grace. But Hanuman is growing! His love and his power are growing, and his family in America is growing. So to welcome all who come to him for shelter, for blessing, and for his grace, he needs a much bigger temple in order to serve.


For this reason, I invite you to dip your cup in the river and pour the water that flows into it into this great bowl. The love in your heart will help build this temple for Hanuman!  Tiny chipmunks and great bears all helped Ram in his epic journey. Love is the key.


Every gift is a miracle of love. Any amount that warms your heart, that shows your love, whether a few rupees or centavos, or a thousand dollars, it is a miracle of love. Every gift, whether tiny or grand,will amplify the beauty and grace that Hanuman brings into our world and mirror the love in your heart.

ABOUT SRI PUJANIYA SIDDHI MA



While She usually referred to Herself as an ordinary woman, those close to Sri Ma knew She was anything but ordinary.

She embodied the highest spiritual attainments, having thorough mastery over subtle planes while conveying a deep human

compassion and love that elicited spontaneous tears and surrender in those who were in Her presence. 


 


     Her service and devotion to Maharaj-ji were utterly exemplary -

She lived Him, breathed Him, embodied and radiated His Shakti;

Her life was evidence of complete devotion to His teachings to love, feed, and serve all.


She was empowered by Him to serve at the highest possible level; those who came in contact with Her had their cares and burdens removed from their shoulders and were effortlessly and immediately uplifted into a state of spiritual bliss. 




     After Sri Maharaj-ji’s mahasamadhi, Mother guided the growth and running of His ashrams with profound determination

and total devotion. The Taos ashram and mandir were developed to a large extent under Her guidance. 



We are graced to have a simple shrine and memorial garden built to honor Her on the premises.












ABOUT THE SRI PUJANIYA SIDDHI MA SHRINE

AND MEMORIAL GARDEN


Construction has at last begun on Sri Pujaniya Siddhi Ma’s shrine.

The shrine to Mother will be a small octagon shaped structure designed to fit in with the local

northern New Mexico style of building and the other ashram buildings. 




The interior of the shrine will have a small altar upon which

Sri Ma’s Feet resting inside a lotus, carved in beautiful rose quartz, will be installed.




There will be a central large photo of Sri Siddhi Ma with a photo of Maharaj-ji and Jivanti Ma on either side.




Sri Ma’s shrine will be located at the west end of the pond with the entry facing east, with a view of the mandir.




The pond itself is where the ashram has already begun installing the landscaping for Sri Siddhi Ma’s memorial garden.



When the shrine and garden are complete, there will be paths that circumambulate the pond with

beautiful plantings of flowers, shrubs and trees all along the paths and around the pond.




Construction will proceed as the funds are available with the hope that it will be complete in the spring of 2024.

The ashram has budgeted up to $100,000 for the shrine’s construction and interior finishes.
