Appeal for Contributions for Sahastrar Dham, the Birth Place of Sahaja Yoga at Nargol, Gujarat - India

All Country Leaders


In the history of Sahaja Yoga, it was in the evening of the 4th of May, 1970 that H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi decided to sit in meditation under a Saru (casuarinas) tree at Nargol, Gujarat (India). In the early hours of 5th May 1970, She experienced the opening of the Sahasrara of the Universe. Shri Mataji has described about the splendor, grandeur and Divine happening in Her earlier messages to the World at several occasions in past.

In March 1972 Shri Mataji visited Nargol for a day. Later celebrating the completion of 25 years of Sahaja Yoga activity an international Diwali Puja was organised at Her Holy Feet in Her Holy presence in October 1995. Since 1995, Sahaja Yogis have been performing regular Sahasrara Puja and Christmas Puja in Her Nirakar Form at Nargol.

The forest land surrounding the holy place has been declared as "Nirmal Van" in an official ceremonial function hosted formally by the representatives of the Indian Government along with the State administrative functionaries and the Nargol jurisdiction authorities. A small temple has been built by the villagers near the Nirmal Tree and regular meditation is held on adjoining platform.

Recently the Government of Gujarat has alloted 5 acres of land at concessional rates in NARGOL near the Nirmal Van to the HH SHRI MATAJI NIRMALA DEVI SAHAJA YOGA TRUST for construction of meditation hall and other facilities.

Indian Collective has already contributed Rs. 236 Lakhs = 3.63 million US Dollar for it which has been spent as follows:

1. Cost of land and registration charges Rs. 175 Lakhs
2. Construction of Boundary Wall + Site Development Rs. 45 Lakhs
3. Steel, sand and stone etc for construction Rs. 16 Lakhs
  Total Cost Rs. 236 Lakhs

The construction will be in two stages and nearly Rs. 300 Lakhs (46 Million US Dollar) is needed to complete its first stage. Since it is a Project of great importance for the Sahaja Yogis of the World, it should be our endeavor to collect this amount. Indian Collective is already making efforts to collect it.
