Situated amidst scenic surroundings in Udupi district near Perdoor of coastal Karnataka state is Harikhandige village, where people throng in search of peace and spiritual inspiration. As ordained by Goddess Shri Mahalasa Narayani, His Holiness Guruji Shri Suresh J Pai — a former lecturer at Dhempo College, Goa — chose Harikhandige as the spiritual hub for teaching, preaching and social service mission. With the cooperation of his followers, he built the temple and got involved in Her service.
Shri Mahaganapati Temple, Shri Mahadev Temple, Shri Guru Datta Peetha, Shri Navagraha, Shri Vittal-Rakumai, Shri Mantralay Raghavendra, and the Nagabana are the other seats of worship in the surrounding area. The Shri Ram Bhakta Maruti temple is situated right in front of the temple of Shri Mahalasa.There is also an impressive Yajna Mantap, constructed for conducting various Havanas and Homas.
Presently, devotees of Shri Mahalasa Narayani and followers of Guruji vouch for the fact that they get mental peace the instant they step into the Kshetra. Once they have bowed before the Goddess, Her grace surely follows. At Harikhandige, the number of meritorious ones who are aspiring for happiness and peace and those who have qualified themselves to earn Mother’s grace, is growing day by day. All these features make the place a heaven on earth for all peace-loving people.
