Phoenix BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Info:

A Mandir is a sacred place of Hindu worship. It represents the earthly house of Bhagwan, where one can visit to calm the mind and experience spirituality. Visitors and the faithful come to offer prayers to the murtis or sacred images, as well as to attend cultural classes and religious services called sabhas. BAPS Swaminarayan mandirs are serve to foster and further personal and collective worship. Pramukh Swami Maharaj, the BAPS spiritual leader and guru, supports the establishment of mandirs as a way of cultivating peace in communities and connecting people with Bhagwan.

The mandirs represent a Vedic tradition of construction, maintenance and preservation of physical spaces to maintain the philosophy of Hinduism. The rituals and traditions celebrated at the controls connect individuals with their families, their communities and with Bhagwan. The mandates ensure that the legacy of Hinduism’s oldest teachings is shared with future generations for many years.

The size of the mandirs varies from small and simple sanctuaries to elaborate stone constructions. BAPS mandirs are traditionally classified as “shirharbadhha mandirs” or “hari Temples”. The jaws of Shikharbadhha are built mainly of stone and architectural pinnacles features, while the hari mandirs are built with modern materials such as steel, concrete and cement. Another important distinction is that in the jaws of the shikharbadhha, aarti is practiced five times a day, while in the hari-mandirs, aarti is practiced twice a day.

In addition to spiritual practice, the BAPS mandirs teach the arts, language, music and philosophy that are the roots of Hindu heritage. BAPS mandirs also organize various charitable activities for local communities throughout the year, such as walks, health fairs, donations of blood, etc.
