GENESIS AND BRIEF HISTORY.

Dahisar Shree Kashi Matha is in Dahisar ( E), the northen most western suburb of Greater Mumbai in Maharashtra. This project was conceived by present Mathadhipati Shrimad Sudhindra Tirtha Swami way back in eighties in the twentieth century on a plot of land at Dahisar ( E) purchased in 1968 which is now popularly known as Sudhindranagar. Though the project could not make much progress in the initial years, the foundation for the project of Matha together with a mandir attached to the Matha was laid by Param Poojya Swami on 23.3.1992. As a result of dedicated service by scores of sincere and devoted volunteers and financial support from hundreds of philanthrophic members of the G S B Community, Swami’s wish could be translated into a reality in about a decade.

The result of the saga of dedication by devoted team led by Shri Mohandas P Mallya, Chairman of Construction Committee and suitable guidance and co-operation extended by the Community members is the majestic and imposing edifice comprising Dahisar Shree Kashi Matha and Shree Vittal Rakhumai Mandir standing tall attracting thousands of devotees and admirers from Mumbai and Maharashtra and also other parts of our country. While the Matha was inaugurated on 22.5.2003, the Mandir was inaugurated on 25.3.2003 by H H Shrimad Sudhindra Tirtha Swami and Pattashishya H H Shrimad Samyamindra Tirtha Swami.

The entire Matha and Mandir is a four-storey structure with a total floor space of 40000 Sq.feet. The Mandir is on the first floor. The fourth floor houses Mata Sharada Nilaya, a repository of artifacts and rare things used and preserved by various Swamis of Shree Kashi Matha Samsthan. The third floor named “ Sri Vyas Mandir” is reserved for Swamis whenever they visit Dahisar. Incidentally it may be mentioned that Chaturmasa vrita ( an important religious observance by a Swamy by staying at one place continuously for a period of 2 to 4 months every year during rainy season, at the request of devotees in the area) of H H Shrimad Sudhindra Tirtha Swamy ( the 20th Pontiff) in khara nama Samvatsara ie in 2011 was observed in Dahisar Shree Kashi Matha. Other floors ie stilt, second floor and third floor ( whenever Swamis are not camping at Dahisar) , are used for various types of religious, cultural and social functions and ceremonies by Hindu people sans castes and creeds. As the fourth floor has since been converted as Mata Sharada Nilaya for the last 4 years for display and preservation of artifacts and rare objects of Shree Kashi Matha Samsthan, the terrace floor has since been added for being used as and when necessary.

The entire Matha Mandir structure has since undergone a facelift with repairs and renovation and provision of additional facilities like providing 2 additional elevators ( lifts), addition of terrace floor with all weather proof cover / shade etc. with a total cost amounting to nearly Rs.6.00 crores.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES OF SHREE KASHI MATHA SAMSTHAN.

Most of the independent Mathas of Shree Kashi matha Samsthan have adopted their own social activities under the guidance of the Mathadhipatis from time – to time, generally confined to provision of free education subsidized health and medical facilities etc. Some Mathas provide freeship / scholarship to needy and deserving students to pursue higher education. Shree Kashi Matha Varanasi run Veda Pathashalas which provide Vaidik knowledge ie procedures, customs and traditions etc to be followed in different types of poojas and important ceremonies like Upanayana / Brahmopadesha, marriage, final rites etc, and various mantras and rituals related to different types of homas / havans ( sacrifices) so as to prepare young Vaidiks to perform these religious and cultural rites. Some independent Mathas run hospitals providing free / subsidized medical facilities as in the case of the Matha at Haridwar. Certain Mathas run old age homes, orphanges and goshales ( cow rearing centres).

For the last several years Dahisar Shree Kashi Matha was facilitating observance of Shree Krishna Janmasthami at Shree Kashi Matha Varanasi. However , during this year ie 2015 Dahisar Shree Kashi Matha has made all arrangements for making proper travel plans including bearing travel expenses, food etc and organizing entire tour ( yatra) to Varanasi and back thereby enabling devotees perform Shree Krishna Janmastami at Varanasi and also offering an opportunity to interested persons and specially senior citizens of our Community. This religious, cultural and social service will continue in furture.

With the grace of Shree Vittal Rakhumai and the blessings of Parama Poojya Shrimad Sudhindra Tirtha Swami and Pattashishya Shrimad Samyamindra Tirtha Swami, Dahisar Shree Kashi Matha has been performing certain important educational, medical and social activities through Sadguru Sudhindra Educational Charitable Trust and Sri Varadendra Medical and Diagnostic Centre, the detailed discriptions on which are given separately under respective heads.
