Steve Jobs Asked Zuckerberg To Visit A Temple In India When Facebook “Wasn’t Doing Well”


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made the optimum use of USA visit by meeting the CEOs of the Multinationals in order to attract them to invest in India. PM Modi also met the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerburg and this meeting was talked all over the internet.

In this meeting, Mark Zuckerburg made an interesting revelation about himself when he told that some years ago when Facebook “wasn’t doing so well”, the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs asked him to visit India and told him to go to a temple, where Steve Jobs had also visited.

Steve Jobs told Mark about the Kainchi Dham Ashram, in Nainital, Uttarakhand and it is the ashram of Baba Neem Karoli or Baba Neeb Karori, who is considered as the re-embodiment of Lord Hanuman. Steve Jobs visited the ashram in the 70s and this was the place where he got the inspiration to set up Apple.

Not only Mark and Steve were influenced by Baba Neem Karoli, but the Hollywood actress Julia Roberts was also strongly influenced by Baba and it was because of him she accepted Hinduism.

In the words of Mark, “he (Jobs) told me that in order to reconnect with what I believed as the mission of the company I should visit this temple that he had gone to in India early on in his evolution of thinking about what he wanted Apple and his vision of the future to be. So I went and I travelled for almost a month, and seeing people, seeing how people connected, and having the opportunity to feel how much better the world could be if everyone has a strong ability to connect reinforced for me the importance of what we were doing and that is something I’ve always remembered over the last 10 years as we’ve built Facebook.”

Kainchi is around 38 kms from Nainital, it is a mountain ashram situated in the Kumoan hills of Uttarakhand state. On June 15, 1964, Lord Hanuman’s first temple was established. In 1962, a chabootra (platform) was constructed around the place by Baba Neem Karoli where two saints Sadhu Premi Baba and Sombari Maharaj performed Yagyas in Kainchi village. Later on, the Hanuman temple was constructed over that chabootra, setting up the Kainchi ashram.
