Bhagwan Sri Nityananda Ashram is situated in Ganeshpuri, in the state of
Maharashtra in India. It enshrines the samadhi of the great sage 'Swami
Nityananda'. The ashram was founded by a disciple of Swami Nityananda, Swami
Muktananda, after being so instructed by the Swami himself. People from far
and wide come to Swami Nityananda Ashram of Ganeshpuri to find their inner
self and move forward on the path of self-realization.
Swami Nityananda was one of the greatest saints of India. It is believed
that Bhagwan Sri Nityananda was a 'Janma Siddha' (a born Siddha or perfected
yogi). In the early years of his life, he lived in isolation in the farthest
regions of South India. Later, he came to Ganeshpuri and lived there till
his last breath. It was here that he bestowed shaktipath (enlightenment) on
Swami Muktananda and instructed his disciple to build an ashram. The Swami
Nityananda Ashram of Ganeshpuri is also known as Gurudev Siddha Peeth.
Teachings of Swami Nityananda
Swami Nityananda always taught his disciples to listen to their heart. He
said, "The heart is the hub of all sacred places; go there and roam". Every
individual must strive towards self-realization and to achieve that purpose,
he should look within himself. God resides within each and every living
being and we can find Him only when we search for Him inside ourselves.
Bhagwan Sri Nityananda Ashram has opened up a number of centers in India as
well as abroad. The most important centers are the ones in India and USA.
