Why India holds so much of significance for Mark Zuckerberg and how it became major factor for Facebook’s early developments

Steve Jobs in early 70s, visited the Indian Temple, Kainchi Dham Ashram, in Nainital at Uttarakhand

August 30, 2016: We all know- that more than religion, Hinduism is a ‘belief’. The spiritual significance attached to the faith makes it more popular among Indians and people worldwide. This also the world’s third largest religion and probably the most modern as well and this is the reason from Julia Robert (Oscar Winning Hollywood Actress) to Steve Jobs (late Apple CEO) to Mark Zuckerburg (CEO Facebook).

Mark Zuckerberg shared this story when he had a meeting with Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, at the headquarters of Facebook, in the United States, last year, in 2015 September. It was there when Zuckerberg revealed, why India was an important part of Facebook’s early development.

Zuckerberg uttered that, several years back, when Facebook, “wasn’t doing so well”, Steve Jobs, suggested  him to have a spiritual tour to India, and visit the temple there. According to reports, the Apple Co-founder had already experienced a life-changing spiritual reflection there.

Steve Jobs in early 70s, visited the Indian Temple, Kainchi Dham Ashram, in Nainital at Uttarakhand. It is known that, after visiting this temple, Steve believed that this place had helped him to get the vision  to create Apple.

Kainchi Dham Ashram, also known as  the Ashram of Baba Neem Karoli or Baba Neeb Karori, considered as a reincarnation of Lord Hanuman. The followers of Baba Neeb Karirori is known as Maharajji. It is a beautiful secluded mountain ashram with beautiful gardens, located in the Kumaon Hills in Uttarakhand, which is approximately 38kms from Nainital. Its first temple was built on June 15, 1964.

Apart from Apple CEO, Steve Jobs; Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, this temple also attracted Hollywood actress, Julia Roberts. It is known  so influenced by this temple, that she was drawn to Hinduism.

The Hollywood actress, who is deeply spiritual, secretly converted when she was shooting in India last September for her film Eat, Pray and Love. Roberts is very vocal about her new found faith “Hinduism” and  said to TOI, “I’m definitely a practising Hindu. I’ve been so spoiled with my friends and family in this life. Next time (since Hinduism believes in rebirth) I want to be just something quiet and supporting after the stresses of my celebrity lifestyle.”
