Maharaj-ji’s Taos ashram was established over forty years ago when our Hanuman-ji, commissioned by Ram Dass, arrived in the U.S. The ashram began as a humble and informal gathering place for devotees to remember Baba, share stories and food, and to enjoy the company of satsang.



In 1981, the milking room in the 100-year-old adobe barn was converted into a tranquil temple room where Hanuman was installed. To this day, Hanuman-ji still sits on part of the original mango wooden crate in which he made the long journey from India to America.

As Maharaj-ji’s teachings and Hanuman’s example of unconditional love and seva spread, the temple has become a place of pilgrimage for many hundreds of devotees and visitors who come for darshan. We have outgrown our small multi-use space and it is no longer functional in meeting the community’s needs.



Construction of Hanuman’s New Temple began in September 2016 and is expected to be complete by September 2018. This is the only Hanuman mandir being constructed in Maharaj-ji name in the United States at this time and follows Baba’s long and loving tradition of building Hanuman temples throughout India for the benefit of the surrounding communities. See construction updates here: http://nkbashram.org/newtemple/updates/



As in the Ramayana, Hanuman has brought Ram's ring to Sita. With it comes tidings of her imminent release from captivity. Hanuman's message brings the promise of love and faith, a faith that moves mountains. His presence, without doubt, will reunite Sita with Ram, our souls with the Supreme. In the Taos temple, Hanuman plays a special role in the transmission of devotion and wisdom, and his mission to deliver Ram's ring to Sita is a reality!




Everyone's enthusiastic and generous participation will help ensure that the funds necessary to complete the project are in hand. All contributions, large and small, will help make the completion of the temple in the fall of 2018 possible! All donations will go directly to the Hanuman Temple Fund and are tax deductible as allowed by law.
