Here are some articles written about Mahantji Dr. Balliram Chadee by various Newspapers and News Media on his Volunteer Service Awards.
Mahantji Dr. Balliram Chadee is Founder and Spiritual Leader of The Hanuman Mission in Ajax, Ontario, Canada. He is also the Founder and Spiritual Leader of The Hanuman Mission of Trinidad and Tobago Incorporated. He was Spiritually Ordained in April 2012, at the Tulsidasji Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple in Varanasi, India for his 50th Birthday. During a deeply devotional and spiritually charged ceremony, at the Temple, which was officiated by 11 Pundits, after which he was taken to the Holy Ganges for Purification Rituals. He aslo visited on this trip, Delhi, Ayodhya, Mathura, Vrindharvan and Agra, Mahantji Dr. Balliram Chadee, is the Founder and Spiritual Leader of The Hanuman Mission in Ajax, the ONLY LEGALLY REGISTERED CHARITABLE OGANIZATION in Canada, and the FIRST to have the name Hanuman, Hanuman Mandir, Hanuman Temple or Hanuman Mission.
Mahantji Dr. Balliram Chadee also completed his Spiritual and Religious Training by personal study, academic study and with some guidance from Pt. Shri Kantha Acharya. After studying and having demonstrated successfully his knowledge, education and understanding of the Doctrines, Tenets, Rites, Rituals and Sanskars of Hinduism and Sanatan Dharma, Mahantji Dr. Chadee returned to India, visiting Varanasi, Pryaag, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Vindyachal and Delhi. Mahantji has always maintained that any Spiritualist who wants to preach, practice and perform, must be versed and knowledgeable in these areas before attempting to become an Educator or Guru to do so.
An Aspiring Devotee of SHREE HANUMANJI, Mahantji Dr. Balliram Chadee embarked on a journey to establish the First Hanuman Temple & Educational Institution in Ajax, which he did as a Private Institution and a mandate to secure a Public Facility, as well as the First Indo Caribbean Cultural Center and Heritage House in Canada, to be located in Ajax, Ontario. In order to realize his dream and vision, to serve members of the community effectively, sincerely and purely through Humanitarian efforts, The Hanuman Mission was established in 2002; as a Service Oriented Organization in Canada to help all Canadians as needed and required. This same activity was extended to Trinidad and Tobago, providing all services under the The Hanuman Mission of T&T Inc., which has been recognized as a Legal Hindu Body by the President of T&T, under the Hindu Marriage Act.
The Hanuman Mission fosters a "Three Fold" dimension which reflects Culture (Humanism), Service (Humanitarianism) and Religion (Hanumanism). "AJAX SOUTH ASIAN CULTURAL CENTER" addresses the needs and requirements of our rich Heritage, Culture and Traditions as "Indo Caribbean" South Asians here in Canada. The "INDO CARIBBEAN FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES" which is the FIRST ever Registered Social Support Services Organization in Canada for Indo Caribbean Immigrants, would address the Social Needs and Support Services requirements of our community. Finally "THE HANUMAN TEMPLE", the ONLY REGISTERED CHARITY with the name "Hanuman Temple" was designed to satisfy the underserviced needs of the Hindu Community and the Devotees of the Lord, Master and Patron Saint of Strength, Knowledge and Virtue; Bajrang Bali, Mahaveer Swami, Pawan Putra Hanumanji, Veer Hanumana.
Mahantji Dr. Balliram Chadee after 9 years of his Divine Intervention finally answered the Divine Call from Hanumanji in April 2002 as a personal gift to himself for his 40th birthday and accepted the blessings to allow himself to be used as a servant by Hanumanji for his mission in this part of the world. The desire to understand that absolute power, unlimited strength, limitless virtues and unimaginable healing capabilities of Hanumanji, led Mahantji to establish “The Hanuman Mission”. He believed this was a personal mission; with an individual intervention from Hanumanji himself and to answer this divine call, endeavored to legally established the entire mission with his own two hands through the blessings of Hanumanji, conforming with the strict objectives and mandates of the charitable organization, as stipulated by laws.
As such all the legal work, logistical hurdles, administrative process and requirements for the Incorporation of this Charity, as well as to obtain the Registered Charitable Designation Status in Canada; were all done personally by him with NO Legal Support, Lawyers, Consultants, Assistance or Services from anyone paid in the charity business. He single handedly undertook all requirements and succeeded at every one of them for this Mission, ensuring perfection and success for his Patron Saint Hanumanji. The same initiative was again doen in Trinidad and Tobago.
This Vision became a reality & then materialized from Hanumanji to become known as:
“The Hanuman Temple and Center For Religious & Cultural Research”. The names of “The Hanuman Mission”, "Ajax South Asian Cultural Center", "Indo Caribbean Family Support services", "Temple on the Mountain", and "WORLD Hanuman Council" are all Legally Registered Entities in Ontario and were all created with the blessings of Hanumanji. A Unique Logo depicting the symbolism and mandate of The Hanuman Mission, as seen on this website, was then launched in February 2005. Mahantji Dr. Balliram Chadee who refused to be called a Pundit, then took the title of a Sadhu being recognized as "The Sadhu from Ajax" until his oridnation when he became Mahantji, in 2012, making a pledge to serve The Hanuman Mission.
The Objective and Goal of the Founder & President has always been to obtain the appropriate and relevant information to understand Hanumanji satisfactorily (if possible), which he has not been able to achieved or understand, even until today. He believes that Hanumanji is the guiding light of this Kali age in which we live, the symbol of strength and energy and the pillar of success. He has undertaken over ten years of research efforts so far to study the full requirements of proper and effective Hanumanji worship, documenting the steps required and needed for conducting Pujas, Rites, and Rituals. To achieve this goal (academic and spiritual), Mahantji Dr. Chadee undertook and successfully achieved a Masters Degree in Hinduism and Hindu Studies. He has also studied and continues to study Astrology to help appreciate the cosmic nature and effects of our planetary system and the impact it presents on the lives of Hindus in today's world. He further achieved a Doctoral Degree (PhD) in Human and Social Services, researching and documenting his efforts in a Thesis entitled: The Migration of Caribbean Hinduism to North America: The Evolution of a Social Services Framework in The Hanuman Mission of Canada.
