The home of yoga and spiritualityIn 1990 His Holiness Vishwaguru Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda Puri laid the foundation stone of a large-scale project called the “Om Vishwa Deep Gurukul Swami Maheshwarananda Ashram Education & Research Centre” (commonly referred to as the “Om Ashram”) under the shelter of Sri Devpuriji Ashram Trust and International Sri Deep Madhavananda Ashram Fellowship.
The main purpose of this Centre is to promote the ancient Indian science of Yoga and the invaluable spiritual treasure of Vedic culture. This Centre is dedicated to the protection of all life, the environment and world peace. It hosts various charity events and supports education and healthcare. The central building of this large complex, is constructed in the shape of the ancient Sanskrit symbol OM - the most beautiful mantra, which contains all three fundamental aspects of God – Brahma (the Creator), Vishnu (the Sustainer) and Shiva (the Liberator).
