“Prayer goes up. Blessings come down”

  I have lost my all wish for my salvation, I never wanted earthly enjoyment. I must see my machine in strong working order and knowing sure that, I have put in the level for the good of humanity in India at least, which no power can drive back. I may worship the only God that exists, the only God I believe in, the sum total of all souls and above all my God, the wicked; my God the miserable; my God the poor of all races, of all species is the special object of my worship.  

- Swami Vivekananda

This philanthropy is the inspiration and base of Vivekanand Ashram.

Vivekananda Ashram...

The entrance to the Ashram is a serene beauty with flower-gradens, water fountains and an imposing statue of Swami Vivekananda. No sooner your car comes in, you are received with genuine warmth and affection by the Ashram Trustees and Staff -a rare commodity now -a-days in this materialistic world.

The Ashram was founded, on 14th January 1965, by Pujya Shukadas Maharaj whose outstanding humanitarian services have earned for him many Awards and Honours including "Karmayogi" "Sant Swamiji" "Sevasamarth" and the coveted "Dalit Mitr Award"

"To be pure and to do good to others; this is the gist of all workship" so preached Swami Vivekanand and this is immortalised by Pujya Shukadas Maharaj who says," The inspiring power behind me is Swami Vivekananda and I endeavour my utmost to live upto his ideals and teachings"
