What is Shanti Mandir?
Shanti Mandir is a worldwide community of people from all walks of life who have the common aspiration of experiencing divinity, knowing the Self and recognising the sacred in all.
Established in 1987 by Mahamandaleshwar Swami Nityananda, it continues the spiritual work of his Guru, the renowned sage, Baba Muktananda whom he succeeded, continuing the lineage of Siddha Gurus, enlightened masters, immersed in consciousness.
Shanti Mandir focuses on:
Two of the three ashrams of Shanti Mandir – in Magod, India and in Walden, USA – are located in beautiful and serene natural settings while the third ashram – in Kankhal, India on the sacred river Ganges – is in a street full of old ashrams adjoining ancient temples and the revered pilgrimage centre of Haridwar at the foothills of the Himalayas.
Each ashram provides an ideal environment for seekers to immerse themselves in a traditional way of spiritual life, as passed down from the ancient sages.
