Shri Sai Dwarkamai Mandir-Bandra (W.Mumbai)

Author Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on 6:23 AM

The Making of this Mandir:

Mr.& Mrs.Desai were very devoted disciples of Shirdi Saibaba & used to regularly visit Shirdi every Ramnavami, Gurupurnima & Vijaya Dashami.

Due to aging when Mrs. Desai fell ill for some time, they could'nt make their regular pilgrimages to Shirdi, which really upseted them a lot. At that time a thought arose to Mrs.Desai that like her there might be many a devotees who due to Age, financial problems, ill-health etc might not be able to go to Shirdi for Baba's darshan so why not to have a Mandir of SaiBaba here in their area itself.

It is then that they themselves shifted some place else and converted their this Ground Floor House into Baba's Mandir in 1977 on Sharad / Kojagiri Purnima (its foundation day)

Also, here Baba is enshrined as a big Picture & not as an Idol because Mrs.Desai believed that Baba`s true Resting Place - the place where he used to spend most of his time was "Dwarkamai"so named this temple as"SHRI SAI DWARKAMAI MANDIR" thus a Big Picture of Baba sitting in Dwarkamai is kept here instead of an Idol.

All the works & running of this Mandir is looked after a Trust headed by Trustee (since inception) - Mr.Sharad Sawant (Bandra-Mumbai)

After their Weekly Kirtans all devotees stand up observing a moment of silence infront of Baba followed by combined Prayers to Baba requesting him to Bless All or any one particular Devotee present in the Kirtan, goin through difficult times. (Now, Thats really sweet)
