A UNIQUE TEMPLE OF MAHAVIDHYAS SITUATED IN BHOJPUR, NEAR BHOPAL
NIKHILDHAM, a temple situated in Bhojpur, 30 km away from Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, was inaugurated in March 2005.
The uniqueness of this temple is that it is spread over an area of 5 acres and has the idols of all the ten Mahavidhyas, specially carved by inspired artisans of Rajasthan. Nikhildham is home to numerous trees, herbs and shrubs which are rare and unique for pure Tantra Sadhana. The complex is serene and surrounded by a flowing river.
Under the guidance and leadership of our beloved Gurudev Shri Sudarshan Nathji and Gurumata Dr. Sadhana Singhji, “MAHAVIDHYA SADHAK PARIVAR” was formed in 1999. Our parivar is engaged in the sadhana of Ten Mahavidhyas (supreme wisdom, supreme goddess).
The pran-pratishtha of chaitanya idol of our beloved Sadgurudev Paramhans Swami Nikhileshwaranandji was performed a year later in June 2007. Nikhildham is a unique place as it has Sarabeshwar, a crystal shivalingam weighing 21kg and other deities rarely found in one location together. In 2008, our Gurudev had undertaken the shila stapana of “Dasa Mahavidhyas”* during the auspicious day of Shivratri. Nikhildham, of course, is a place where lots of pure spiritual energy flows. Gurudev and Mataji are taking a lot of effort to make Nikhildham a distinct place to facilitate spiritual quest.
Our Gurudev launched a monthly magazine “SADHANA SIDDHI VIGYAN” in 1999. It is since regularly published monthly till date. Sadhana Siddhi Vigyan is totally devoted to the teachings of Adi Sankaracharya and Swami Nikhileshwaraanand. Our gurus were intimate disciples of Paramhans Swami Nikhileshwaraanand, our Sadgurudev, a great yogi of the divine land of Siddhashram, a place divine even to gods. Poojya Sadgurudev left his physical form in 1998 and ordered Gurudev Shri Sudarshan Nathji and Gurumata Dr. Sadhana Singhji to promote Mahavidhya Sadhanas and other sadhanas under pure spiritual path so that more and more people are benefited. The ultimate aim is to help the people.
According to our Gurudev, Shri Sudarshan Nathji : Spirituality has a responsibility to spread light. It has to give meaning, to transfer the torch of knowledge, to let one be enlightened, and illuminate one’s mind. Life as soon as it occurs needs light. It needs light in various forms. This is the duty of many gems in our world, those who are the best of their field; politicians, actors, scientists, technicians, intellectuals all are spreading the illumination of knowledge. Generally, a country that has abundance of electrical energy is considered a developed one. Wherever the myriad nuances of light are fathomed that country is a superpower.
Mahavidhya : 10 Mahavidhya’s (Kali, Tara, Chinnamasta, Tripura Sundari, Bhuvaneshwari, Tripura Bhairavi, Dhoomavati, Bagalamukhi, Matangi and Kamala) are independent as well as connected to each other in an embrace. Very few Mahavidhya Sadhaks are left in our country. The Shaktipath is fundamentally based on Mahavidhya. The world is full of energy; even Lord Shiva is incomplete without Shakti. Shakti worship is based on the principle of synergy. Shakti pooja promotes versatility and diversity. Shakti creates something new in conjugation with Shiva as only Shakti is capable of rejuvenation. In the absence of worship of Shakti, the world will wilt, age and collapse under rotten thinking and lack of energy. Shakti worship promotes happiness, rejuvenation and youth in the world.
