|Bharatamata Mandir Album|
Adoration and worship of Bharatamata, our Jamabhoomi. Punyabhoomi, Karmabhoomi, and Mokshabhoomi, is the hallmark of Hindu Dharma. The Vedas and Puranas proclaim the glory and greatness of our Motherland. Sri Rama extols Mother and Motherland as greater than the Heaven—Jananee janmabhoomischa swargaadapi gareeyasi. She is the Mother of all our Gods and Goddesses, saints, seers and holy men and women whom we worship and for whom temples have been erected all over the country and abroad. However, rarely we find a temple dedicated to Bharatamata whom even modern saints and savants like Bankim Chandra, Swami Vivekananda, Mahayogi Sri Aurobindo, Sister Nivedita, Swatantrya Veer Savarkar and Mahakavi Bharati eulogized as the manifestation of Mahashakti and presented before us the concepts of Ananda Math and Bhavani Mandir.
Sister Nivedita Academy, founded in 1977 with the blessings of stalwarts like Acharya J.B. Kripalani and Swami Chinmayananda, and dedicated to the task of spreading the glory and greatness of Mother Bharat and our most ancient culture and heritage in India and abroad, has been rendering yeoman service to Hindu cause in India and abroad. The official organ of the Academy, TATTVA DARSANA Quarterly, is in the twenty-first year of publication.
Bharatamata Gurukula Ashram & Yogi Ramsuratkumar Indological Research Centre, a wing of the Academy, named after His Holiness Yogi Ramsuratkumar of Tiruvannamalai, the deeksha guru of the founder of the Academy, Sadhu Prof. V. Rangarajan, and set up at Srinivasanagar, Krishnarajapuram, Bangalore, in 1999, is dedicated to train a lay order of missionaries of Mother Bharat to serve Her children all over the world.
The Academy has now set up a unique SRI BHARATMATA MANDIR in its premises at Srinivasanagar, Krishnarajapuram, Bangalore 560 036. This temple is a place of congregation of all children of Mother Bharat, irrespective of caste, creed or nationality, to offer worship to the Loka Guru, Bharatamata, and to spread Her message, Vasudaiva kutumbakam—the whole world is one family. An exquisite idol of Bharatamata has been consecrated in the temple where Deshamaatrukaa Pooja and Havan are performed by all devotees directly. For details, contact Sadhu Prof. V.
