mission of our India center is to establish a social and
spiritual organization that is self-sustaining over time with an
ability to serve God thorough Humanity. The mission has been
developed to understand the true nature of Hinduism by searching for
the Divine within oneself and helping others towards this realization.
its foundation in 1983, it has grown from a mere two-acre barren
land to over 50 acres of thriving orchards, mango gardens, coconut
groves, a residential facility for visitors and ongoing cultural and
spiritual activities for devotees. Badarikashrama has a primary school that benefits children in this rural area. We are developing a middle and high school.
The local residents are able to participate in the ongoing
activities, which include evening kirtan and satsanga,
weekly music and Sanskrit classes, seminars, personality development
camps and yoga training camps. Celebrations are held for all major
festivals. Residential accommodation is available for individuals and
groups who wish to visit Badarikashrama for short and long term
spiritual retreats. These activities are rapidly turning a once
unknown place into an international spiritual community with many
families visiting regularly to sing Gods name, perform karma
yoga and provide support to the ashrama.
