Construction of Temples & Ashrams in Uttarakhand and Other Places
There has been a great majority of Shaktas and Shaivaites in Uttarakhand. There are some Vaishnavas also, but there were mostly the Shakti Peeth and the temples of Lord Shiva.
The number of Hanuman temples was negligible. The worshippers of Hanuman were very few. Although Ramayana was read and Ram Lila was enacted during Dussera in autumn, but Hanuman was regarded as one of the leaders of the army of monkeys and as a messenger of Rama.
Babaji, who was endowed with the supernatural power of will and who was an incarnation of Hanuman, the eleventh aspect - Rudra of Shiva, became determined to build Hanuman temples in Uttarakhand.
But, prior to it, he had to create an awakening for Hanuman in the heart of each and every individual.
For this purpose Babaji inspired people to read non-stop Ramayana, particularly the Sunderkand and Hanuman Chalissa individually as well as collectively.
Besides this outward religious performance, he transmitted in the heart of people faith, reverence, love and devotion for Hanumanji by his will power.
