Muktidhaam Temple in Nashik

Panchavati - Tourists' attraction in Nashik

Location:

Trimbakeshwar Temple is located at a distance of 40 km from Nashik Road railway station in Trimbak town of Trimbakeshwar tehsil in Nashik. Well connected by road, this is easily accessible through any vehicle. Several buses and private taxis also run frequently from various parts of the city to the Trimbakeshwar.

About the temple:

This temple is situated at the foothills of Bramhagiri mountain which is the origin of Godavari River or Gautami Ganga. Built by third Peshwa Balaji Bajirao this ancient temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, manufactured of black stones in a spacious area.  Amazingly the jyotirlinga here in Trimbakeshwar is unique and different from all other jyotirlingas in other temples of Lord Shiva. There is no Shiva linga but a hole which has three stones of thumb shape at equal distance in the circular way of hole representing the three Hindu deities Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva hence the name of the temple is Trimbakeshwar.

Trimbakeshwar temple timing:

This temple is open from 5:30 am to 9:00 pm. Whenever you visit this temple you will find the crowd and long queues but you may finish visiting Trimbakeshwar temple within 1-3 hours depending on the day time you choose. During a festive season like Shravan month or another festival period, you may have to wait for 4-5 hours in long queues. VIP passes also available for quick darshan but that will also take time when the number of devotees increases. Cost for VIP pass- Rs. 200 per person.

Best time to visit Trimbakeshwar temple in Nashik:

You can visit this temple throughout the year but I would suggest visiting this place in monsoon or winter season because in that period the weather is quite good and during the summer season you sweat like hell. During monsoon, with the lower cloud touching the mountain this is the place not less than a heaven. I just love it in the Monsoon.

Surrounding of Trimbakeshwar temple, Nashik:

Trimbakeshwar temple is surrounded by several small shops and restaurants nearby offering various religious books, CDs, toys, handmade decorative items, and veg food, etc. You will find devotees feeding grass to the cows wandering in front of the main entrance of the temple, this is considered auspicious deed. Street vendors offering a bunch of grass are skilled enough to turn devotees their customers and thus they make business.

Sightseeing near Trimbakeshwar temple:


  • Bramhagiri Hill:

    Brahmagiri Hill
    This is the origin of Godavari River and a small temple built for Gangadwar on the peak of this mountain. Monsoon is the best period to visit this place as you will witness amazing natural beauty around. Clouds are embracing Bramhagiri hill with you, this is a wonderful experience there.  But beware of strong winds on the top of the hill. You will see huge crowd trekking Bramhagiri hill during the rainy season and enjoying the scenic beauty.

Oriflame Success Plan

oriflame success plan
Source: https://in.oriflame.com

I have already mentioned about Oriflame business in this article, have a look if interested. Oriflame offers a work from home opportunity while having fun. There are two ways of earning with Oriflame revealed below.

1. Resell Oriflame products to your clients and earn commission

  • When you become an Oriflame consultant then you can purchase Oriflame products at a 20% discount on catalog price.
  • Every month new Oriflame catalog is launched which is packed with several discounts and offers for the clients. Being a consultant you will be offered an additional 20% discount on the offer price in the catalog. For example, let’s understand with the lipstick in the below picture.
    oriflame success plan


    MRP of the “Giordani Gold Iconic Lip Elixir SPF 15” is Rs. 999.

    Current month offer on this product is 30% off, so the offer price of this lipstick in the catalog is Rs. 699.

    As a consultant, you may buy this product at Rs. 559 including 20% discount on offer price i.e. 699.

    Oriflame Consultants show the catalog to the customers, receive orders at offer price mentioned in the catalog and earn 20% profit on their sales. In the above example, the profit is Rs. 140 on the sale of each lipstick.

2. Build your own team by inviting others and earn together- Oriflame success plan

Oriflame consultants invite others to join their team and work the same way. In this way the potential of earning is limitless. Bigger your team, higher is the chances to earn more.

Download Oriflame current month catalogue


How the Oriflame success plan works?


  • Success in Oriflame business totally depends on your BP earned per month. BP means Bonus Points. Every Oriflame product is assigned with a BP value. You earn a BP value whenever you place your order through your account on Oriflame and the same way your team (the one who joined under your network) also earn BP value whenever they place the order. Total BP earned by your team is added with your personal BP and this is called group BP which is the basis of various level qualification.
  • There are several rewarding levels to qualify on the basis of the total BP earned within a month. These levels are categorized as consultant (3%, 6% and 9%), manager (12%, 15%, and 18%), senior manager, director, senior director, gold director, senior gold director, sapphire director, diamond director, senior diamond director, double diamond director, executive director, gold executive director, sapphire executive director, diamond executive director, president director, senior president director, gold president director, sapphire president director and diamond president director.
  • Each level has its own benefit and cash reward, have a look at the below image the success ladder of Oriflame business. More you earn BP, you qualify different levels and more you earn income. 
    oriflame success plan
    Oriflame Success Plan Ladder (Source: https://in.oriflame.com)
  • The number of BP required to qualify these consecutive levels are big in number which is not possible to earn individually. Therefore you need a team or network with whom you will work and recruit people under them expanding your team benefiting yourself as well as your team.


What you need to do to earn from Oriflame every month?

  • Every month you need to place an order of 100 BPs which equals or lies in the range of Rs. 4500-5000 (consultant price) approximately. These are your personal BPs. If you cannot place the order of 100 BP in any month then you have to recruit at least two people who place 100 BP order in the same month.
  • Your success totally depends on the performance of your network so you cannot ignore the act of your team. Observe the performance of your team members. Encourage and guide them to perform better and succeed with you.
  • The total BPs earned by your team members will be added with your personal BP and then group BP will decide the level you qualify.  Increase in the number of team members means the team or network expansion resulting in more income. If every member of your team earns 100 BP every month and recruits new members in their network then you will succeed with your team to the next level.
  • Also, you receive bonuses when your team members qualify for higher levels. So here everyone works together and grow together.

    Key to success in Oriflame: Placing 100 BPs orders every month and recruitment of passionate and hard-working people under your network. Your network must be self-motivated, capable to place 100 BP Oriflame orders and must be able to recruit new members who are interested to work as per Oriflame success plan.
