Relax into balance, wellbeing, and conscious awareness; visit the Sanctuary in the Spring for our Synchronicity Retreat and immerse yourself in the heart-opening and enlightening energies that reside here.

Join us in this haven of health and wellbeing and experience your innate joy and aliveness. Sink into deeply renewing meditations, explore our array of Wellbeing Services, enjoy our beautiful grounds, and spend time with new and old friends.

Cherished friends from Shanti Mandir Ashram will arrive Wednesday afternoon to join us in elevating and expanding the enlightening energies.

About Mahamandaleshwar Swami Nityananda

Mahamandaleshwar Swami Nityananda Question and Answers with Mahamandaleshwar Swami Nityananda

Gurudev Swami Nityananda was raised from birth in an environment of yoga and meditation. His parents were devotees of Bhagavan Nityananda and Baba Muktananda. He was trained from childhood by Baba, and in 1981, Baba declared that Swami Nityananda would succeed him to carry on the lineage.

Gurudev learned the various yogic practices, including meditation and Sanskrit chanting, and studied the philosophies of Vedanta and Kashmir Shaivism. In 1987, Swami Nityananda founded Shanti Mandir as a vehicle for continuing his Guru’s work and subsequently established four ashrams. In 1995, at the age of 32, at a traditional ceremony in India, the saints installed him as a Mahamandaleshwar in recognition of his spiritual attainments.

His humility, devotion, patience, and acceptance are palpable, his ability to speak English and his knowledge of the Western culture, allows audiences to grasp the traditional Vedic teachings with ease. While carrying the traditional teachings, he makes spirituality a practical part of modern daily reality, guided by the prayer “May all beings be content.”
