Guest House for Devotees (Vishram Gruha)

They are provided shelter, food and if necessary medicines. There is separate guest house for Saints (Sadhus). For other visitors also huge facility is available in Ashram. They can stay there. Food, shelter are provided free of cost.

Yagna Shala

Yagna (Havan) is claimed to be one of the highest act a man can perform as per the Vedic culture. We have built yagnashala where yagnas are performed daily 365 days a year with precise Vedic chants and all required offerings. Apart from the spiritual benefits there are innumerable other benefits of performing a yagna. Everyone gets benefit of pollution free environment, which we preserve by yagna.

Yajna means Lord Visnu, or sacrificial performances. All sacrificial performances also are meant for the satisfaction of Lord Visnu. The Vedas enjoin: yajno vai visnuh. In other words, the same purpose is served whether one performs prescribed yajnas or directly serves Lord Visnu.

If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I will accept it.:- Krsna accepts even a little flower from His pure devotee. He is not in need of anything from anyone, because He is self-sufficient, and yet He accepts the offering of His devotee in an exchange of love and affection. Without the basic principle of bhakti, nothing can include the Lord to agree to accept anything from anyone. Bhakti is never causal. The process is eternal. It is direct action in service to the absolute whole.

He clearly requests that a leaf, fruit, flowers and water be given to Him, and He says of this offering, “I will accept it.” In the Third Chapter, verse thirteen, Sri Krsna explains that only the remains of sacrifice are purified and fit for consumption by those who are seeking advancement in life and release from the clutches of the material entanglement. Those who do not make an offering of their food, He says in the same verse, are eating only sin. Krsna has no need of food, since He already possesses everything that be, yet He will accept the offering of one who desires to please Him in that way. The important element, in preparation, in serving and in offering, is to act with love for Krsna.

GnanVan (Tree Plantation)

Trees play an important role in maintaining the atmospheric balance. Ashram is been engaged in cultivation of many rare medicinal plants and have nurtured huge trees to form a small forest, rightly termed as “UPVAN”. The medicinal plants grown here are very rare to be found which are then used in our dispensary for curing people. One more aim behind developing this UPVAN is to facilitate highly spiritual personalities to stay in this peaceful ambience. Basic necessities like food water and other needs are well taken care of by the Ashram.

Gnan Ghat (Holy Lake)

We have constructed river bank steps on vast lakes for villagers to bathe and facilitate them to wash clothes. This helps to prevent wastage of water and adds up to maintain cleanliness. Villagers are highly benefited by this which in turn maintains the ecological balance. Ashram also plans to develop an area on this bank for villagers to perform post death rituals. This shall be very beneficial for all the people and they would be able to avail this facility free of cost.
