A Short Description
With all blessings of Sadguru
Shirdi Sai Baba here is short description of making trust
for a temple of Shri Sai Nath at village Nakronda, Gullar
Ghati Road , in Dehradun District.
Jitendra Dutt Bhatt
son of Late Shri Surendra Dutt Bhatt was on employee
of drilling displine in ONGC. I spent most of the time in
Mehsana Distt. of Gujarat . My mother Later Smt. Savitri Devi,
my wife Smt. Sulochana Devi and nephew Rakesh were all my
family. Later on a son Vaibhav and daughter added in family.
My income was not sufficient as to meet the family demands.
I tried to do other jobs as well.
My one friend and colleague
Sh. Prasad Ji was too much a devotee of Baba
and always carried the well known book “Sai
Satcharitra” with him. He was booned with a
son after ten years of his marriage. He encouraged to worship
Sh.Sai Nath by a friend Sh. J.K. Dass. He devotedly acted
upon the advice of Sh.Das and engrossed in Naam Smaran
of Baba whole heartedly. And within a year he was blessed
with a son. Being together on duty he encouraged me to devote
my self to Baba and gave the book “Sai Satcharitra”
to read it. I went through the book and returned him. He observed
that I was not assured, he than asked me to sincerely tell
Baba about my worries.
To meet the family demands
I had taken a scheme which on completion would reward me
Rs. 25000/- and to achieve the target only twenty five days
remained. I was worried about the time, it was almost not
possible to achieve the target, so I bowed down with all respects
to his feet earnestly. His ways are not known how he cares
for his children. Who comes to him with love. I got
what I wished for. It was in 1976-77. Now
I longed for his “Darshan” at Shirdi.
My friend Sh. Prasad too was planning for Shirdi, Thus we
both with our wives planned and reached Shridi by bus from
Surat . We took room, the rent was Rs. Twelve Only. After
a night rest we joined the morning puja. This was my first
Darshan of Baba, I was stunned and immobile as if something
over powered my and tears rolled out of my eyes. I was in
bless full situation.
Heither to, thought I am
Brahmin, but my karmas were not Brahmanical. But the blessing
of Sadguru turned me into a rebirth, and shower of his blessing
started flowing to guide my future line.
With his blessing, we five devotees, Sh. Ambalal Panchal,
Sh. J.K. Das, Sh. S.M. Prasad,
Sh. Satyabir Sood and my self J.D.
Bhatt, established a Sai Baba temple in Mehsana.
We were only the service men and soon Sh. Natu Bhai
Patel joined us and now looking after all activities
and requirements of temple along with his tow sons.
I had no idea than that
Baba will send me back to my village Nakronda in Distt DehraDun,
In 1999 I took voluntary retirement from ONGC. My younger
brother Devendra Bhatt was engaged in construction
work in Dehradun after his retirement from army.
With his efforts we got a shop in court campus and opened
a Photostat PCO and photography shop “Sai Communication”
Thus Baba called me here. Here in village Nakronda we all
brother inherited some land and a good part of it is situated
on Gulhar Ghatti road prominently.
After two years the imagination of a Baba Temple in
our village came to me. I consulted Mata Ji and my
elder and younger brothers; we all agreed to the idea of a
temple and established a “Trust".
Mata Ji started worshiping Baba Ji along with her deity Shri
Krishna. One particular prayer she offenly said was "Ram
Krishna Hanuman Roop Mein, de darshan chahe jis roop mein"
Once while she was in “Pooja Ghar”
she thought about non appearance of Baba in front of his famous
posture sitting on rock and from it suddenly there was a beautiful
light and Mata ji fainted in awe with a shriek. My wife in
kitchen heard it and found Mata Ji as is in sleep. She sprinkled
some water but Mata Ji through awakened but remained speechless
for quite some time. On my return at home, I came to know
that she fainted while worshipping but she did not speak after
she got awakened. The reason the told was she was enjoying
a blissful situation.
The photo of Baba
on rock is with is and demonstrated on Doli twice.
An eternal earthen lamp continuous to light in established
temple. The construction work going on and increasing number
of people are coming to the temple. Thus our whole family
has become a Sai devotee. Now a Dutt temple has come into
being morning and evening aarti is continuing. “May
the devotee of Sai baba be blessed” This I
pray to him.
Initial phase: -
The area of Mandir Campus is in six and quarter bighas. Its
foundation and Nav-kundi Puja was conducted under the supervision
of “SHANTI KUNJ” of Haridwar on ---
- The under ground digging
is completed the pillars and erected. The walls to standing.
It is ready for laying first linter. Boundary walls on two
sides are complete. After linter the, Garbh Griha construction
shall take place. The baths and lavatories are ready to use.
The devotees are coming increasingly day by day to seek his
blessings and feel peace. I and our families imagine a beautiful
emergence of Baba's statue in the temple and accommodation
for people coming from far distances to stay overnight. Because
this is a for off place in village Nakronda from city.
It is this way to arrange
the things to come. It is how suddenly that a baba devoted
architect and construction engineer joined the project, is
