Atman Nityananda at the Babaji-blessed Mahashakti Dhuni in Hairakhan in the Himalayan foothills of India.
Babaji’s words about Mahashakti Dhuni,
Extracts from the book, The Teaching’s of Babaji
10 AUGUST 1983
The dhuni down below has living consciousness. In the name of Lord Rama (Rama Ji Ki Nain), the Divine Light is always present in the dhuni. For the sake of Lord Rama (Ram Ji Ki Tein) (Babaji began almost all statements with either of two phrases which he used like mantras.) everyone should attend Aarati there and do meditation. In the name of Lord Rama, during the night of 16th August there will be all-night vigil and kirtan and 108 candies will be lit for the opening ceremony. In the name of Lord Rama, on the morning of 17th there will be a havan ceremony. In the name of Lord Rama, everyone should always be sincere and attentive to do bhajan and satsang for the attainment of spiritual knowledge and do other spiritual practices at the dhuni.
The dhuni is one of the wonders of the world!
You may see many types of dhunis in the world, such as parsi dhunis, but nowhere else will you find an eight – sided dhuni. The eight sides symbolize the eight arms of Jagadamba, the Universal Mother. As long as there is creation, the dhuni will be there with living consciousness.
A boon has been given to this dhuni-that whosoever comes to have its darshan, whosoever meditates and does puja there, will be relieved of all ailments, whether physical, mental or spiritual. For the sake of Lord Rama anyone suffering from whatever disease, if he takes vibhuti (sacred ashes) from the dhuni and sits regularly for meditation and concentration, will be relieved from all his chronic diseases.
Mountain Kailash in Hairakhan
In the name of Lord Rama, Rishi-Gautama came first to this place where the dhuni is now. This is why the river bears his name. Vasishta (the guru of Lord Rama – one of the seven rishis from the beginning of creation – and writer of many sacred scriptures) also came here.
The Kailash you see before you is the main Kailash. Lord Rama also came here. Now, after thousands of years of creation, this place is in its most degenerated state. There was a time when there were no hills, no earth here. But, in the name of Lord Rama, now there are both earth and hills. In the name of Lord Rama, even the sea was here. When Lord Rama came with the Rishi Vishwamitra to visit Rishi Gautima’s ashram, He drank from the spring by the dhuni now called ‘Ram Dhara’. For the sake of Lord Rama, goddess Durga with eight arms also came here to bless Rama. This is the place of eight – armed Durga – this is why the dhuni has eight sides.
