Bangaloreans, did you know that there is a powerful wish-fulfilling temple right in the heart of the city? Karya Siddhi Anjaneya Temple in Girinagar fulfils your deep-seated desires if you offer a coconut to Lord Hanuman. The 41-year-old Hanuman temple witnesses scores of devotees on a daily basis, donning a sacred orange thread around their right wrists, a coconut in their hands and a prayer on their lips. Here’s why you must visit this Hanuman Temple in Bangalore.
Karya Siddhi Anjaneya Temple Is A Wish-Fulfilling Temple In Bangalore
Lord Hanuman is the eternal devotee of Lord Rama. He was instrumental in helping Lord Rama fulfil his desire of rescuing Sita from the clutches of Ravana in Lanka. Lord Hanuman with the help of the vanar sena ( army of monkeys) built the Ram Setu— a bridge made of floating stones, embedded with the name ‘Rama’.
So, just like Lord Hanuman fulfilled Lord Rama’s wishes, Lord Hanuman in Karya Siddhi Anjaneya Temple is believed to fulfil the wishes of his devotees. The name Karya meant efforts of devotees and Siddhi means fulfilled. So, Karya Siddhi truly is a wish-fulfilling temple.
Constructed in an octagonal shape, this Hanuman temple in Bangalore was consecrated by Sri Ganapathi Sacchidananda Swamiji. It has a monolithic Hanuman idol that weighs 200 tonnes. Around 18 sculptors created this idol over a course of 10 months. The entrance of the temple has a 40-feet tall Hanuman statue greeting devotees. It’s a sight to behold.
Here’s The Process To Get Your Wishes Fulfilled At This Hanuman Temple
Karya Siddhi Anjaneya temple is known for its Poorna Phala Samarpana. Here, devotees offer poorna phala (coconut) to Lord Hanuman to fulfil their wishes. Patience is a virtue. So, in order to fulfil your deep-seated wish you must first of all be ready to have complete faith in the divine. And follow a set procedure over a course of 16 days.
To fulfil your wish, you must, first of all, get a special coconut from the temple. Pay ₹100 to the temple authorities and you’ll be given a coconut with a number stamped on it and a receipt with your name on it. Hold the coconut allotted to you and be seated in front of the divine deity. With the coconut in your hand, look into the deity’s powerful eyes and whisper your wish. Be as specific as possible about your wish.
Offer 1 Coconut To Lord Hanuman To Fulfil Your 1 Specific Wish
Next, you must tie the coconut with its outer shell at the temple. Devotees must then chant the Karya Siddhi Anjaneya temple 108 times every day. And also do 41 pradakshinas twice a week at this Hanuman temple over the course of 16 days. You will be given this Hanuman mantra and an orange thread to tie around your wrist for 16 days.
Keep in mind that you must abstain from non-vegetarian food and alcohol during this period. On the 16th day, visit the temple and take home your allotted coconut kept on the temple premises. This coconut must later be used to prepare any sweet dish as prasad. You must also untie the sacred orange thread around your wrist and return it back to the temple.
If you have any doubts about this procedure, you can always consult the temple authorities or priests. They will guide you through. Well, let me tell you from personal experience, Lord Hanuman at Karya Siddhi Anjaneya Temple, indeed fulfilled my wishes. So, here’s hoping all your deepest desires get fulfilled with the blessings of Lord Anjaneya.
