History

The History of Lord Shiva Temple

The history of this Shiva Temple dates back to the year 1994 when the construction of the 65-feet-tall Lord Shiva idol started. The temple was inaugurated by Sri Shankaracharya of Shringeri on February 27, 1995 on the auspicious MahaShivratri day in Bangalore, Karnataka.

This is no ordinary Temple! One morning, AiR- Atman in Ravi got a vision to build a temple where a huge statue of Lord Shiva would stand, building Faith, Hope and Belief for generations to come. He was surprised because when this inspiration struck him, he had no money, land, and plan. All he had was this vision. But AiR- Atman in Ravi and his father Vashi J. Melwani were completely convinced that the vision was, in fact, a message from God. They tried to make this vision come true. As if by magic, with the grace of God, they got a piece of land, arranged for the funds, and the Temple was soon a reality. With faith, all things are possible!

Mission

The Mission of Shivoham Shiva Temple

The Shivoham Shiva Temple is committed to guiding people towards the true goal of life : Self-Realization, God Realization, Moksh, Nirvana, Liberation and Enlightenment. Very few people in this world go on a search, a Talaash for the truth. Most people believe in God, but they don’t pursue to find out the truth behind God, life, and existence. The temple helps such Seekers or Jigyasus progress on the path of liberation. Instead of just performing Poojas that are not understood by people, the Temple Priests will share the true meaning of the Poojas with the seekers, which will help them to go forward on the path of liberation and Moksh. They could choose a Pooja for Moksh, Jivanmukta or Satchitananda, or they may choose a path, a Pooja for Viveka, Vairagya, or Mumukshutva.

Each of these Poojasare very important for the progress toward liberation. Therefore, the temple will help people focus on the right aspects that will lead them forward on their path of liberation.

The Temple Poojaris will not only guide the devotees to perform the Pooja at the temple, but also “give” the Pooja to them so that they can take it back home. The meaning of Mantras will be explained to the devotees so that they can repeat these Poojas and Mantras back at home to continue their efforts on achieving realization and liberation. The pooja cards are available in Kannada, Hindi & English.
