Shri Bhirbhanjan
Mahadevo Vijayatetarām
Shrimat-Swami Vishvatmananda Giri


The Ashram has a Shiva Temple in which the Main Residing Deity Narmadeshwar Shri Bhir-Bhanjan Mahadeva is established along with His Family (Gauri, Ganesh, Kartikeya, Nandi) and Shri Hanuman. A Sacred Lamp is lit continuously in front of Lord Mahadeva since last Akshaya Triteeya, 27th April 2009.

Daily Pooja and the recital of Shiv Maha-Puran is conducted from 4:00 to 5:30 in the morning. All the devotees residing in the Ashram respectfully attend the program.

Rudra-Abhishek is conducted on every Pradosha and Maha-Rudra-Abhishek is conducted during special occasions like Maha-Shivratri and on Akshaya Triteeya (Ashram Foundation Day).

The meaning of "Bhir" is "problems" or "sorrows" and "Bhanjan" is "The Breaker", so Bhir-Bhanjan Means "The Breaker of problems and sorrows" in this case "The Eliminator of all sorrows and problems". There is an apparent effect in worshipping this form of Deity.
