About This Center

The International Centre and Ashram, Shree Peetha Nilaya, is the main hub of Bhakti Marga, Atma Kriya Yoga, OM Chanting and the home of Sri Swami Vishwananda.

Located near Frankfurt, Germany and surrounded by fields and amazing views overlooking the beautiful Taunus region, it has the capacity to accommodate thousands of people. It is one of the largest interfaith spiritual centres in Europe.

People are continuously drawn to Shree Peetha Nilaya to evolve in consciousness, deepen their sadhana (spiritual practice) and re-discover Divine Love. It represents a place of higher consciousness: the heart of God. It offers something for first-time visitors and long-time devotees alike: the ability to not only gain in knowledge but also to leave with a direct experience of their own potential.

An ashram in ancient India was a place where spiritual seekers lived in peace and tranquillity amidst nature. Within this environment one can pray, sing the name of the Divine, perform Seva, and simply be happy. You are invited to come take part in a festival or activity, or to stay a while and experience ashram life. Everyone is welcome, and no one leaves empty-handed.

I find that when we really love, accept, and approve of ourselves exactly as we are, then everything in life works. It’s as if little miracles are everywhere..because they are! Louis Hay

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
