A land where an Avatar dwells remains charged and pure for many centuries. This land is special. It is conducive to right action and right thought. If any seed of Sat Karma (Good Karma) is sown in the land of Shivpuri, it sprouts and blossoms into a big tree within no time and effort. - Shree

History

The location where Shivpuri is presently situated was initially defined as a special area by Shree Swami Samartha Maharaj. During one of His journeys, Swamiji stopped in Shivpuri area and
sang a hymn of Lord Shiva. This was His indication of the times that lay ahead and to foretell the fact that this land would be known far and wide as the land of Purity and Knowledge. Shivpuri is also where Swami Shivananda, a Shiv Yogi, and Shree’s father chose to have his Samadhi.

Before buying this piece of land in the year 1953, Shree witnessed many auspicious signs here.
He had seen the Rising of the sun on the horizon when he first cast his glance on the piece of
land which quite aptly so, was later on named Shivpuri, by Shree Himself. To Shree, the rising sun symbolized the ushering in of the New Era of Science, Universal Brotherhood, and Peace. Shree has also referred to Shivpuri as Bhu Kailasa or the Kailasa on Earth, depicting purity and healing.

Shree referred to Shivpuri as the Seat of His Dharma and His Dhamra Rajdhani (Capital).

Shivpuri is located 3 kms to the north of the town of Akkalkot. Shree founded Shivpuri with an objective of spreading the knowledge of the Guru Tradition all over the world. An international center and global headquarters of the Vishwa Foundation, Shivpuri is a Vedic Eco Community that blends ancient wisdom with modern technology.

Spread over 150 acres of organic farms, themed gardens and Ayurvedic plantation, it’s a global community that attracts visitors from all around the world. Thousands of people from all over the world visit the Ashram to learn the concepts of PSM and experience healing vibrations.

The tradition of offering Prasadam that is going on in Guru Mandir is also going on in Shivpuri. Shivpuri also has all the modern accommodation facilities for guests and participants of the various courses, retreats and events organized by Vishwa throughout the year.
