Babaji Shri Hairakhan Baba appeared on June 1970 in a cave at the foot of mount Kailash in Kumaon, India. His coming has been foreseen in the ancient scriptures and by an Indian saint of the XXth century, Mahendra Baba. Shri Babaji has been a manifestation of God since the first times man learned religion. Mahavatar means 'incarnation of God not born of woman'. Babaji is known to Westerners through the book "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda, who met in Him in one of His previous incarnations. To focus the mind and cure all physical and mental ailments, Babaji stressed the repetition of the mantra OM NAMAHA SHIVAY. People of all countries and all religious or spiritual paths or even atheists gathered at His feet in His main ashram in Hairakhan, where He shows that a new world of truth, simplicity and love is possible. Shri Babaji left his body on 14th February 1984. "This body of mine is nothing, it is here only to serve the people". (Babaji). Shri Babaji continues his work from the mind and heart of people and through the infinite love of Shri Muniraji Maharaji, whom he has indicated as spiritual guide mainly for Western disciples and devotees.
Shri Muniraji Maharaji
"Muniraji is the embodiment of Guru Dattatreya, a very ancient incarnation of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva in one body as a Guru. He is a Yogi and spiritually very very high. Spread this message everywhere among the people". (Babaji) He has been the Guru of the family of devotees since Shri Babaji has left his body in 1984. Shri Muniraji lived in Haldwani, Uttar Anchal, India, where he welcomed and helped all devotees who visit Babaji's ashrams in Hairakhan and Chiliyanaula, Ranikhet, where he built a magnificent ashram and the great Shri Baba Haidakhan Charitable and Research Hospital dedicated to Babaji, which started in 1995. Being father of a numerous family and running his own business, being Chief of the Hairakhandi Samaj, the association of Babaji's devotees, taking care of Babaji's ashrams in India and abroad, being the spiritual guide for thousands of Babaji's devotees worldwide for 3 decades, He has been the living example for all of how is possible to live a worldly life and being spiritually enlightened at the same time.
Shri Munirajji has left his body on 4th August 2012. His work continues in and through all his disciples and devotees.
Shri Shastriji Vishnu Datt Misra
When Shri Babaji left His body on February 1984, there was the heritage of His spoken word as well as the grace of the wisdom of those few whom He had kept really close. Shri Shastriji was such a person. He has said of himself that “he followed Babaji like a shadow”, accompanying Him on His many journeys throughout India in his function as chief priest, celebrating the ancient Vedic ritual of Yagña, the fire offering, in hundreds of places. Shri Shastriji was a prolific writer, a Sanskrit scholar of repute and one of Shri Mahendra Baba’s closest disciples, who already two decades earlier had prophesied Babaji’s incarnation as the Lord of Lords and world teacher. During his discipleship with Mahendra Baba, Shastriji had received a profound preparation to recognise and serve the Lord in His fourteen years sojourn on earth. In fact, he had written most of his works in mantric verses about Hairakhan Baba many years before His physical appearance in 1970. When asked, Shastriji emphasised that whatever he had written was “... by the grace of my master and by direct inspiration of the Lord Himself... I am merely a writing instrument”. Whenever Babaji gave His short, informal talks at His ashram in Hairakhan, at the foothills of the Himalayas, Shastriji would be asked by Him to repeat His every word before they were translated into English. Shastriji was the mouth-piece of Him, whose coming he had helped to prepare by his writings; and when He had come, Shastriji was the one who put across through the spoken word to the many thousands who came the timeless wisdom of the Sanatan Dharma.
Hairakhan Vishwa Mahadham
Holy place 27 km east Haldwani, distr. Nainital, Uttar Anchal, close to mount Kailash on Kumaon Himalayan foot hills, where Hairakhan Baba appeared during his manifestations 1800-1922 and 1970-1984. It is a remote little village on the sacred river Gotam Ganga, which flows at the feet of Kumaon Kailash, the mythical Mount Meru. When Shiva married Sati, brought her to Kumaon Kailash. When the Goddess arrived there planted a tree, the same now standing in the middle of the river, Sati Kund. Shiva said to his son Kartikeya that when the gods will be back on Kailash and Hairakhan will be again the centre of the world, that will be the beginning of a new age. There is now a magnificent ashram in Hairakhan, started from the temple built in 1800 by Babaji himself and always growing to welcome the hundreds devotees coming from all over the world. Temples and dhuni, a big kirtan hall, many rooms and facilities, a small hospital serving ashram residents and all people of the villages nearby. "
There are ten temples here at Hairakhan. They are symbols. They show us that the body is a temple with ten senses, and we must install God in our hearts within this temple. This body is a moving temple of the Lord. He wants us to make this temple so beautiful that wherever it goes, people would like to worship, have great reverence for it, and try to gain knowledge from it". (Hairakhan Babaji. "Teachings of Babaji,")
