The sacred Maha Shakti Dhuni, located by the Gautami Ganga river in the gardens below the Haidakhan Ashram was built with Babaji’s own hands and inaugurated in August 1983. Babaji enrolled the much loved Harigovind Baba, who lovingly nurtured the dhuni constantly for many years. Many people have experienced the power and love of the Divine Mother that has been evoked both during and since that time.
Many inspired devotees have done great service for Ma and the Dhuni over the last thirty years. During its recent history, the Dhuni and the sacred fire were not attended to during high summer and monsoon seasons. But once again the Dhuni fire burns continuously, due to devoted and inspired pujaris and pujarins and the work of a local villager Bachhi Singh – himself a village pujari.
The ongoing maintenance of the Dhuni not only takes constant work, but it also requires our help with funding. The Shakti Dhuni is financed by donation only. Donations pay for maintenance, puja items and supplies, firewood (Rs 30,000 per year). We also provide a small allowance for our long term pujaris and a small wage for our Indian caretaker.
