JAGADEESHWARA MANDIR SUVARNA MAHOTSAVA (JMSM)
SAHASRA KALASH – ABHISHEKA
10th November 2018 (Saturday)
50th Year of Jagadeeshwara Temple, Powai
Established by Swami Chinmayananda in 1968
On the premises of the Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, Powai, Mumbai is a beautiful and unique Shiva temple called Shri Jagadeeshwara Mandir. From afar one can see the Shivalinga on the temple roof (instead of the usual gopuram), that beckons people to visit it. The “Prana Pratishtha” of this temple was peformed by Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda, on 10th November 1968. It is the ﬁrst temple built by Swami Chinmayananda.
We are celebrating “Jagadeeshwara Mandir Suvarna Mahotsava” – the Golden Jubilee of this temple on 10th November 2018 (Saturday).
In 1968, when the temple was inaugurated, holy water from Gomukh, the very source of Mother Ganga was brought in for the Kalash Abhisheka, that was peformed on a grand scale.
This year also, to celebrate the Suvarna Mahotsava, a Sahasra-Kalash-Abhisheka shall be peformed on Lord Shiva who is pleased with Abhisheka! You are welcome to contribute towards the Kalash of your choice and peform the abhisheka or nominate a representative to do it on your behalf.
Deities in the Temple
The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Jagadeeshwara (Shiva), in spotless white marble, sitting in the meditative pose.
Within the Sanctum Sanctorum, in the centre below the ground level is a Shivalinga. Daily rituals like Archana, Abhisheka, etc. are done to the deity.
Lord Shiva represents the power of destruction and devotees invoke His power for the annihilation of ignorance and attachments and to unfold one’s True Nature which is Truth-Awareness-Bliss.
“As your body requires daily cleansing, so does your mind. Live in the inner temple of Godliness. Surrender the mind in devotion unto the Lord. He will purify it and return it back to you.” – Swami Chinmayananda
Abhisheka is done to express our love and gratitude to the Lord & invoke Divine Grace. May the Lord purify our mind and bless us with more devotion, knowledge and selﬂess service.
Water from 8 sacred rivers including the Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati will be brought together and Yajmans will oﬀer special Abhisheka on the Utsava Linga. You can choose from the various oppotunities to do Abhisheka Seva. (Mentioned in Sponsorship Form)
The greatest and the highest Abhisheka is to pour the water of pure love on the Lord in one’s heat.
The Abhisheka ceremony shall be performed in the august presence of Swami Swaroopananda (Global Head, Chinmaya Mission) and other Swamins and Brahmacharins
The temple is built on the same land where the first modern day Vedantic Gurukul – Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, was established by Swami Chinmayananda in 1963, to impart the philosophy of Advaita Vedanta and Sanatana Dharma to young men and women, FREE of cost for two years. More than 1000 students have graduated from here since then and are the serving the society selflessly. Presently the 17 batch is underway for more than 75 students. Your contribution will go a long way to support the Vedanta Course.
