Amidst the stress and daily fast paced lives, there is a need for spirituality. For all devotees of Sai Baba, Shirdi, the abode of Shri Sai Nath till He took his Samadhi, has been the ultimate peace seeking destination. If you haven’t got an opportunity to travel to Shirdi, Sai’s abode … Gurgaon has Sai Ka Angan in Sushant Lok built as a replica of his Shirdi abode!
Built in 2000, the temple is run through dedication and devotion of the Sai Prakash Spiritual and Charitable Trust, culminated by Dr. Chandra Bhanu Satpathyji.
As you enter this devotional haven, the Neem tree planted at the site offers a symbol of spirituality and purity. The area around the Neem tree is fondly called the ‘Gurusthan’ by the devotees visiting the temple. The Dwarka Mai temple replica, spread over an area of 4000 square yards, opens to a life size idol of Sai Baba in a sitting posture in front of the Dhuni.
Providing a sanctuary in a bustling sector 29 of industrial Gurgaon city, you can enjoy serenity and observe a dhuni lit in front of Sai Baba’s figure. Observe devotees perform mesmerising aarti and admire the lilac tree within the premises that stands at an elevation of 245 m (804 ft), offering a dazzling view of the city too!
Anna Dana is done on every Friday by sending food for over a hundred people in a Spastic Home close to The Temple. The Trust also runs a Charitable Homeopathic Dispensary having two qualified doctors to examine the patients and dispense free medicines.
Apart from the Pujaris and workers, there are a number of devotees who provide their helping hand in the smooth running of the temple and its associated activities.
Towards this end, a club for children has been formed called ‘Bacchon Ke Sai’. With a view to imbibe the values of Sai Satcharitra in our little ones, fun-filled activities based on the life of Shri Sai Baba, are organized every Saturday between 5.30 pm and 7.00 pm. These include painting competition, story telling (on Shri Sai), and screening films on Baba, theatre and much more.
The main functions celebrated annually here are the Mahasamadhi Diwas, Gurupurnima, Ram Navmi and Dattatreya Jayanti. Keeping with the tradition of the Shirdi Samadhi Mandir at Shirdi, the temple performs four Aartis’ daily- Kakad Aarti, Madhyan Aarti, Dhup Aarti and Shej Aarti.
