Om Ashram - The Home of Yoga & Spirituality
OM Ashram is a unique and magnificent project that is inspiring and important for the future of mankind.
Everyone is warmly welcome to join!
In 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”).
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.
We had an honour that a small group from Indian Army Corps of Engineers came to visit Om Ashram.
Om Vishwa Deep Gurukul Swami Maheshwarananda Ashram Education & Research Centre
The central building of this large complex, is constructed in the shape of the ancient Sanskrit symbol OM. The sound of OM consists of three letters: A, U and M. It represents the cosmic vibration, the original eternal sound. OM is the underlying source of creation, adi-anadi – the reality that was, is, and will forever be. Therefore OM represents wholeness, completion. It is the most beautiful mantra, which contains all three fundamental aspects of God – Brahma (the Creator), Vishnu (the Sustainer) and Shiva (the Liberator).
Situated in an area of 250 acres, this central monument will be the largest man-made symbol of OM in the world. The 108 compartments of residential units that are to form this impressive OM shape, attract tremendous cosmic energy. These units are symbolic of the 108 beads of the Japa Mala. A lake will represent the cresent Moon of the OM symbol. Its point, known as bindu, will be constructed as a tower, 108 feet in height, with 12 temples. At 90 feet, there will be a large overhead water tank and above this, a Surya temple dedicated to the Lord of the Sun.
