Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

With utter exuberance & blessing of Maa Gayatri, from very childhood, I was trained for doing this Gayatri Sadhna since my Parent were Deekshit of Parampujya Gurudev and a whole time devotee. When we shifted to Delhi NCR,we made a habit to visit annually with my father & after his demise, with my wife & kids. This place gives me immense pleasure. The serene & mind jolting Nadh sends me in heaven. Really, we feel the suktam of Vedas with all ancient gyan & power enlighten the whole area and keeps every body very recharged with enthusiasm. I normally visit in Second paksha of Shravan and staying & doing rituals at this place gives me inner peace & strength to work hard. I like this place the most.

spread over a large area, there is a temple, a store selling religious literature and herbal ayurvedic medicines, a canteen where you can buy breakfast, a dining area where you can have free lunch that is a wholesome meal - you have to sit on the floor and wash your own plates and glasses after eating. remember to take only as much as you can eat and not to waste food.

We planned to spend less than an hour here, but by the time we came back from here, it was half a day. We were helped by a devotee there named Sri Sheshadri Aravind. He took us to all the places there, and even got us subscribed to a magazine published from there.
Great thing I learned about this place is that education is given to everyone, religion no bar, caste no bar, sex no bar. A lot of education courses are conducted here, most of them revolving around the gayathri mantra.

Free food is served to whoever comes here.

Thank Aravind V

Great ashram, good for religious people to stay and pray, bonus is free lunch which is delicious, very large in area, but you need to submit your identity such as Aadhar or epic card for entrance, worth a visit.
