The recent interview of our Prime Minister Modi Ji with the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg has truly honoured every Indian by the efforts of our dynamic PM. This meeting portrayed India in entirely different colours by highlighting the potential of this nation. Yet the main attraction of this talk was the mention by Mark about the Indian temple; which he was advised to visit by late Steve Jobs.
Yes we all are aware about the huge religious and spiritual background of our country but it is surprising to know the faith of foreigners in our devotional land. Zuckerberg told Mr Modi of this little known incident. He said that the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs urged him to visit a temple in India at a time when Facebook “wasn’t doing so well.”
The temple about which he was referring to is the Kainchi Dham Ashram in Nainital, in the state of Uttarakhand. This is Neem Karoli or Neeb Karori Baba’s Ashram, who is believed to be the reincarnation of Lord Hanuman. In 1962, Baba Neem Karoli built a platform where two spiritual gurus Sombari Maharaj and Sadhu Premi Baba performed their ‘Yagyas’ and later the ashram was built. Neem Karoli Baba has ashrams at different places including Lucknow and Texas, US.
