On entering the Monastery, set under a massive Audumbar (Ficus) tree, is the Ram Paduka or the
Blessed Insignia of Lord Parshuram. Made out of stone these Padukas are believed to have been
blessed by Lord Parshuram. In the ancient times it is believed that the family of Lord Parshuram resided on the place that is today’s Guru Mandir. The beautifully carved temple today stands on
the same spot, reminding us of the historic and spiritual importance of the site.
The place where Shree lived is called Ram Ramashram. This is a two floored structure standing just adjacent to the Ram Paduka temple. In this building are the room’s personal kitchen, dining room, resting room,etc that Shree used during His 41 years of stay in Guru Mandir.
In the year 1971/72 Shree gave permission to one of His devotees, to build a residence for Shrees use in the left side of the area from the main gate. Up till this time the meditation room was used by Shree for his daily religious austerities and for taking his meals, etc. This two storey building had facilities for Shrees, clean bathrooms, toilet etc.
This a room on the ground floor of the Ram Ramashram. This was the place where He had the
vision of the Holy Fire (Siddhagni). This room was used by Shree for His Meditation and Japanusthan (chanting of Mantra’s). This room was also used by Him to meet all the devotees and followers who came to meet Him from all over the world. The stool and bench He used are still kept in this room.
Inside the Sanctum Sanctorum of the temple is the Samadhi (final resting site) of Shree Balappa Maharaj. All the Blessed Insignia given by Shree Swami Samartha Maharaj to initiate the Guru Lineage are also kept here.
The Samadhi of Shree Gangadhar Maharaj, the spiritual Guru after Shree Balappa Maharaj, is located just outside of the Garbha Gruha.
The four Vedas, the symbol of unlimited knowledge and wisdom are placed on a beautifully carved
This is the place where in the year 1944 Shree took the Vow, “I will rejuvenate the Vedas.” The Sapta
Shloki (Seven Verses), which describes the Panch Sadhan Marga (Five Fold Path) and is considered as
the gist of Vedic Wisdom, was first revealed by Shree. This site is of great historic and spiritual
importance to all the Agnihotra and PSM followers worldwide.
