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”) under the shelter of Sri Devpuriji Ashram Trust and the International Sri Deep Madhavananda Ashram Fellowship. Om Ashram is part of Om Vishwa Deep Gurukul Swami Maheshwarananda Ashram Education & Research Centre. 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. The building of Om Ashram has already brought many benefits to those engaged in the work, including jobs and material security for millions of local people and their families.
