India is a land of rich heritage. Its
cultural and architectural roots and
traditions are a source of great
national pride. One aspect, which
perhaps, doesn’t get as much global
attention is its unique spiritual
inheritance. This land of Vedas and
sages has given us a distinctive legacy
of passing on esoteric metaphysical
knowledge of the ultimate truth, from
generation to generation through the
establishment called ashrams. These
were designed for serious aspirants

Since prehistoric times ashrams have been imparting structured learning programmes where students learn and practise vital inner yogic sciences under the guidance of a living master. Continuing this glorious tradition is our ashram - Rishi Chaitanya Trust. Established in 1997, it is a non-government, non-profit charitable organisation. Under the guidance of revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa, its main mission is to provide dedicated services towards spiritual upliftment of the masses. The trust provides a residential retreat centre where various activities are held regularly in this regard and are open to all without any discrimination.
Besides this, the trust is very active in humanitarian activities like mission shakti aimed at empowering underprivileged girls by providing them with education and essential life skills that enable financial independence. As and when needed, the trust also provides ad hoc help for victims of natural disasters and calamities.
Charitable events like blood sharing camps, free health check ups of poor folk residing in nearby villages is also an integral part of our mission. The master’s dynamic vision ensures continual emergence of new activities and programmes which help in spreading our philanthropic wings in order to reach out to more and more destitute people.
The ashram is an aesthetically designed sanctum providing a perfect setting for both, serious seekers wanting to make a concerted effort towards their spiritual evolution and worldly folk seeking a sanctuary to unwind and take a breather from their frenetic lives. The ashram was founded on this very basis of providing a conducive environment for people to learn, practice and thus spiritually evolve under the guidance of a living master.
