         About Panvel Sansthan:

The Sanctum Sanctorum of this  beautiful temple is graced by a 5ft 5" /bronze life like Murti of Sri Sai Baba. The temple opens at 3.00 a.m. sharp and echoes with the sacred chanting of Mantras. Then begins the ritual of waking up of the Lord by chanting of Bhupali, Suprabhatam, Kakad Aarati, various Namavalis etc. The Murti is then bathed with Ganga Jal and finally adorned with a new robe, jewels and flowers for the devotees to obtain Baba's darshan and blessings.


However it is Thursday's which are /breathtaking. In the midst of a large gathering of devotees and with the chanting of Vedic hymns Pujya Gurudev commences the Maha Abhishek of Baba's Murti with Ganga Jal.

This is then followed by doing Abhishek with 2500 litres of filtered water (Jal) which is collected for distribution among the various devotees who specially come to attend this event. This Jal is also sent to various parts of India and to various centres all over the world. This is followed by Abhishek with 108 litres of milk, chandan, vibhuti etc. After this devotees are allowed to perform Abhishek of Baba's Murti. < This 2500 litres of Abhishek Jal of Baba is taken by various devotees for their daily consumption. This Abhishek Jal has miraculous curative properties & has cured various terminally ill patients in India & a/broad from their ailments. Even after many years of storage this Jal retains the same fragrance & is fit for human consumption. This is truly a miracle of Shirdi Sai Baba at Panvel Mandir. This Thursday puja ends after Archana & Maha Mangal Aarati which is then followed by the Palkhi procession of Shirdi Sai Baba's Murti which is indeed a /breathtaking sight. A vi/brant Utsav Murti of Sai Baba, on which extensive daily pujas are performed, is placed on a florally bedecked Palkhi . The procession is led out of the temple by traditional Nadaswaram musicians who are followed by nine devotees carrying on their heads silver kalash with coconut . Four pall bearers carry this Palkhi to the ringing of cymbals and the singing of the glory of Baba.
