Offering Shawl

  • Devotees may offer a shawl of their choice and design to Baba to celebrate personal occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and other milestones. This is an unique opportunity to see Baba dressed in an attire of your choice.
  • As this is a very popular service offered by devotees to Baba, please book your date well in advance.
  • Please note that Shawl bookings are NOT available for Mandir’s special events such as Ram Navami, Guru Poornima, Vijaya Dashami, Deepawali, and New Year’s (Jan 1).
  • We recommend devotees to buy shawls from the Mandir Resource Centre. These shawls are custom made to fit Baba’s murthy.
  • The Mandir reserves the right to reject shawls from being offered to Baba if they do not fit properly. We are currently not accepting fabric (unstitched shawls). Only orange coloured head scarf shall be offered to Baba every day.
