In 1990 His Holiness Vishwaguru Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda laid the foundation stone of a monumental project, called the Om Vishwa Deep Gurukul, Swami Maheshwarananda Education & Research Centre (commonly referred to as the “Om Ashram”). Situated on 250 acres in the Jadan district of Rajasthan, India, this centre is being constructed in the shape of the ancient symbol OM. On its completion, the monument will be the largest man-made symbol of OM in the world…
This ecologically managed Ashram can accommodate up to 500 yoga students for education in Yoga, Sanskrit and Philosophy. The main purpose of this centre is to promote the ancient science of yoga and the invaluable spiritual treasures of Vedic Culture, including:
Guided by H.H. Swamiji’s initiative, Yoga in Daily Life organisations from all over the word are actively engaged in supporting a number of the humanitarian projects within the research centre. These projects endorse the United Nations Millennium Declaration and Development Goals as fundamental and necessary on our path to a just, sustainable and peaceful global society.
As the international epicentre of the Yoga in Daily Life organisation, it is dedicated to the protection of all life, the environment and world peace.
At the center of the Om Ashram sits the Mahasamadhi shrine of Paramhans Swami Madhavananda, known to His devotees as Holy Guruji. He entered Mahasamadhi on 31st October 2003. He remains a true inspiration for all seekers of eternal truth and his Mahasamadhi shrine has made Om Ahram a place of pilgramage.
