Bhole Baba ki Jai !!! Our beautiful ashram Sada Shiva Dham -Home of Lord Shiva-, is situated in one of the most scenic parts in the middle of Holland , the Veluwe National Parks. This ashram is a very peaceful place , surrounded by many old and tall trees in the forest.The birthyear of our ashram is 1992. But before this event we had established a temple for our Beloved Babaji in Amsterdam. We initiated the temple in 1981, after experiencing an exceptional Leela from Babaji.While visiting Babaji in Hairakhan, He had said many times to Bhuri that she should start a Temple for Him in Amsterdam. This never happened , but Christmas 1980 He told her : “If you have not done this karma yoga by the time you come here again I will send you back to your country immediately”.In februari 1981 we suddenly remembered what He had said ! And within a few days we managed to arrange a very simple but joyfull temple and the first Arati was enjoyed by a surprisingly big group of people , singing happily along with an Arati cassette tape. Babaji gave -unknown to us !- the touching present of celebrating the first Arati in Holland on Maha Shiva Ratri ! Back in Hairakhan , we wanted to thank Him for this moving gift . He said : “Yes , I know , I was there too , good chai ! “.In Amsterdam , Babaji’s Home moved to several other houses and although Shri Munirajji liked the places and visited them all, He insisted that we needed a Real Ashram in Holland. Pujari and Bhuru searched throughout the country and at last found a wonderful , nice and big wooden villa in the forest with a luxurious garden , large grassfields and woods .In 1992 we celebrated the opening of our “Real Ashram” ,inaugurated by Shri Munirajji and Shri Shastriji. But ! What a disaster ! Our dear home for Babaji burnt totally to the ground in 1994. The only thing left was our small Dhunihouse. With the dedicated help of good constructors and a great number of devotees we re-built our Home for Babaji.In 1996 , Shri Munirajji and Shri Shastriji once again inaugurated and gave Life to our two powerful Murti’s. We are very thankful for this unique place where Babaji’s loving presence can clearly be felt an experienced. And ever thankful to the special devotees who run the ashram , always giving a hearty welcome to devotees and the many visitors. Our pujari is a present from heaven ! A devotee once said : “If there was a Nobel-Prize for pujari’s then it should go to our MaartenBaba.”Sada Shiva Dham brims over with activities . Early every morning meditation in the Dhunihouse ,Havan there saturday,sunday ,monday. Arati in the morning and evening. ”Babajiweekends” around Full Moon , with big yagya (vedic fireceremony). Lakshmi Puja once a month, celebration of spring and autumn Navaratri. Bhajan concerts. Also yoga and fasting weeks and several other spiritual healing groups. And of course always the possibility to perform a lot of karma yoga .The ashram in Loenen has great plans for expansion. The construction of a new Temple in front of the existing building has already been approved by the Government. Both Shri Munirajji and Shri Mandaleshwar had told us several times that it was not appropriate , not even allowed to situate a Temple in between the bedrooms and bathrooms. It took us some time to agree but we were finally convinced to build a new home for our lovely Murti’s. With the help of generous donations and the cooperation of many we hope to realize our plans. It will take some time but we will let you know when the plans have become reality.
We would like to invite you all to come and celebrate our New Temple ! WELCOME !!!

The news that the Dutch devotees are busy with an extensive building program may have reached your ears. The Dutch ashram is in an area where you cannot even build a house for your dog let alone anything bigger. We therefore have set up a large plan so we could allow the officials to cut in our master-plan. A miracle happened as the officials visited the ashram. They became very enthusiastic about the place and worked with us to get all permissions we needed. We are now 95% underway in seeking the government approval and no change at all in the plans. This brings great responsibilities along at this point. We Dutch are not even such a big group but since we are internationally oriented and think about the future we will move along with the whole plan. The fact that we got all these permissions gives the strong faith that Babaji is closely involved in the realisation of this temple. We would like to inform you all of these plans and seek help from our international family to make it happen, with ideas, actual help during the construction ( next year ) and fundraising. Please publish it in your newsletters, web sites and spread the message in anyway you seem helpful.
Bhole Baba ki Jai!!
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Babaji’s devotees from Sada Shiva Dham would like to wish you a
The building process of the Babaji temple starts now with a winter-stop and we hope to continue early February.
With the help and guidance of Shri Babaji we hope that we can deliver the temple, devoted to Shri Babaji and Shri Haidakhandeshwari Mataji before Gurupurnima festival early July of this year, 2012.
Before we can reach this point lots of energy will be needed and financial means as well.
A lot of donations have been collected up till now, but that’s not be enough, we are afraid.
Therefore we create an easy way you for financial support via PayPal and credit card for finalizing the building of the temple devoted to our beloved Shri Mahaprabhuji
