Amma has ushered in a new epoch in temple worship through her Brahmasthan temples. These temples have been consecrated by Amma Herself at various places in India and abroad. One of these temples is in Pune.
These temples symbolize the one God that manifests as various deities. One monolith is installed in the Sanctum-sanctorum (Garbhagrah) and on its four sides are carved the figures of Devi, Ganesh and Shivalinga and Rahu.
In a divine vision, Amma clearly saw how she could mitigate the miseries of modern man by reviving and revitalizing the age-old tradition of temple worship. The Brahmasthanam (the abode of Brahman) temple is the outcome of that divine vision. This new type of temple with a new mode of worship was created to alleviate human suffering, educate people in the true principle behind temple worship, show the unity underlying diversity and help unfold the divinity within each one of us. The worship in the Brahmasthanam temple focuses on the importance of unselfish love for God, the value of performance of worship and rituals performed by devotees themselves, the special power of congregational yagnas (collective worship), and the performance of daily pujas conducted according to the injunctions of the Shastras (scriptures).
