Anoopam Mission – Mogri
The Temple structure at Brahmajyoti has a unique history. Sant Bhagwant Param Pujya Sahebji, a protagonist with prime vision “modern education with religion” decided to divert all funds (initially allocated for an elaborate “Shikhar Baddh” mandir) to construct a women’s college at Dhari, a very remote backward region of Saurashtra-Gujarat and birthplace of his guru Yogiji Maharaj.
The existing temple ‘Parmita’ is pyramid shaped representing that a single divine source is the ’cause and effect’ of the universe beneath. In 1993, on the auspicious occasion of Anoopam Diksha Rajatotsav (Silver Jubilee Celebrations of Anoopam Mission), Parmita abode marble deities of Lord Swaminarayan, Brahmaswarup Gunatitanand Swami and Brahmaswarup Gopalanand Swami in the holy presence of Sant Bhagwant Param Pujya Sahebji, Param Pujya Pappaji and Param Pujya Hariprasad Swamiji.
In the early 1980s, Anoopam Mission was aspiring to acquire land in Vallabh Vidyanagar for its expansion and social activities. This search concluded in village Mogri, outskirts of Vallabh Vidyanagar, at the existing site. Subsequently, it was realized that The Lord has bestowed this land, as Brahmaswarup Param Pujya Yogiji Maharaj himself had sanctified the meadows, while passing by. He had rested under a mango tree (now located at the center of the campus & called ‘Hriday Kunj’) and with His blessings, the adjacent well swelled with potable water to become the chief source for agriculture. Even till this day, the well supports ecology on this ‘Tapobhoomi’.
There are several spiritual activities held at Anoopam Mission.
Daily Mahapuja, chanting, meditation and prayers
Every evening, Sant Bhagwant Param Pujya Sahebji and other senior vratdhari sadhaks offer spiritual discourses on understanding of scriptures ‘vachnamrut’ and ‘swami ni vato’.
Vratdhari santo and devotees of Anoopam Mission orchestra an evening full of devotional singing with harmonious music on 7th & 23rd of each month, from 07:30 pm to 09.30 pm. Devotees from near by areas gather for this event.
