In our ancient religious books, Santoshi Mata is referred as the Goddess of Satisfaction. She is the daughter of Lord Ganesh. She accepts all the sorrows, problems and ill fate of all her devotees and blesses them with prosperity and happiness.
She is treated as the most calm, soft, pure and kind form of Goddess Durga. She is sitting on lotus which signifies that even in this world which is full of selfishness, rudeness and corruption goddess of satisfaction is still present in her devotee's hearts. She resides on the lotus which is blossoming in the sea filled with milk which is a symbol of her purity signifying that where there is purity of heart and dedication there we will have our mother of satisfaction.
As it's a general saying that "if we will eat sweet things then our words will be as sweet as sugar", in the same manner Maa Santoshi refrains all the sour things and symbolizes her devotes that by avoiding the sour things which are wrongs acts they can achieve the complete purity, happiness and satisfaction in their hearts.
Maa Santoshi not only provides purity and calmness, she also saves all her devotees from ill powers with her Sword in her left hand and Trishul in her right hand. As per the beliefs she is a four handed Goddess with only two hands visible to her devotees and other two with weapons like Sword and Trishul are only for the ones who play as the hurdles in the path of truth and goodness. Santoshi Maa is the most beautiful and lovable goddess who is always ready for blessing her followers and looking at her statue all the devotees forget their problems and feel as if they are lost in her beauty and calmness. Maa Santoshi is worshiped on Friday and it is believed that people get all their wishes fulfilled by worshipping Goddess Santoshi by keeping 16 consecutive fasts and following the strict rule of refraining from all the sour eatables. Take us to the paths of complete solace as being our mother she knows what is best for us.
Maa Santoshi Mandir in G-Block, Hari Nagar Jail Road, New Delhi-110 058, which was founded on 3rd July 1981 by holiness Satguru Shri Shamsher Bahadur Saxena Ji and his wife Satguru Maa Mrs. Kanta Saxena Ji. He was the 'Sansthapak' of this holy temple.
Shri Shamsher Bahadur Saxena Ji joined the Govt. Service in Army and after few transfers in 1967, he came to Delhi and started his life from a house in G Block Hari Nagar and started meditation of Maa Santoshi in front of a pratima of Maa Santoshi and started blessing the suffering of downtrodden in the form of "Chowki". Finally his meditation and blessings brought a wonderful dream come true in the form of a huge beautifully designed temple on 3rd July 1981, and on the same day deities of Maa Vaishno, Maa Saraswati along with Maa Santoshi were consecrated with all Pooja's and Shringar's and with the blessings of these Goddesses on 29th February 1984 deities of Shiv Parivar, Gaytri Mata, Sheetla Mata and Chitragupta Maharaj deities were added in this series and on 9th Feb 1998, the largest idol in Asia of Maa Santoshi madeup of 9 precious metals(Ashatdhatu Idol) was consecrated. The devotees encompasses various deities for worshiping, they put their faith in the deity they worship.
It is said during his nirvana on 01/08/2005 he melted in to the heart of Maa Santoshi and Maa Santoshi appeared in her subtle form and entered into the body of Shri Amit Saxena Ji. At present, Bhakt Shri Amit Saxena Ji is 'Sanrakshak' and 'Sanchalak' of Maa Santoshi Mandir in G-Block, Hari Nagar Jail Road, New Delhi-110 058.
Shri Amit Saxena Ji has taken a solemn pledge to build at least one Santoshi Maa Mandir in each of the 28 states of the country. There is no doubt that with the blessing of Maa Santoshi and active cooperation of devotees, this noble and laudable assignment would be accomplished in coming years.
We feel that his strengths and powers would continue to inspire and guide the future growth and expansion of this institute to reach new horizons.
