SAINATH DHARMASHALA, Siddhagiri..
The Siddhagiri Sai Mandir was established a year ago on the auspicious day of Guru purnima. The temple, presided by the magnificent presence of Shirdi Sai Baba at 7.6 feet high stands as the largest pure marbled statue in the world. The siddhagiri hill has hosted the Svayambhu Lingam for decades, which now remains at its original geodesic placement, constantly growing and right in front of the Shirdi Sai Baba statue. The hill vibrates with the energies of Vishnu, Raghavendrar, Krishnar, Panchamukhi Hanuman, Hethaiamma and Goddess Lakshmi. Over the last year, annadhan has been served everyday, with Baba’s compassion.
History goes over a few decades back when local elderly folks observed that the herd stopped everyday at a specific spot in the hill on their way, giving an impression of being in prayer. The folks grew curious and dug up the spot to find a swayambhu lingam. When the lingam was carried away from its original spot, it grew heavier and heavier until the lingam had to be finally placed at the current geodesic location.Ever since, the swayambhu lingam has been growing in dimensions, indicative of the powerful sacred and consecrated space it owns and blesses His ardent seekers.
Divine mothers Annapoorani and Lakshmi graze at the base of the hill, amidst virgin natural geography and wildlife. The valley has the Shirdi Sai temple on one side, and the Sadguru ashram located on the other, showing a distinct divine plan of the energies facing each other across the valley.
