The Vision And Mission
Beloved Papa envisaged Anandashram as a centre where from the greatness of God's name would ring out and spread in all directions. ‘This will be an abode of purity, love, peace and bliss. All Sadhakas and devotees will have a free resort to this consecrated spot; and the basis of activity in it will be universal love and service.’ Anandashram, though not a missionary organisation, carries out the mission entrusted to it by the Founder Saint whose message to everyone, especially to those who would come to this spiritual centre, is clear and simple: spirituality is expansion from the individual to the universal - from ‘me’ (self-centredness) to ‘we’ (self-lessness). “If you want peace for yourself and others in the world, adjust your conduct in accordance with the law of Love. Expand your vision so that it can embrace all fellow-beings and link them to yourself by Love. Rise above narrow creeds, cults, communal leanings and national ambitions. Merge your life in the infinity of God!" This spiritual centre offers every kind of facility for the spiritual regeneration of the soul so that it may realise its pristine Divine nature. To this end, all service and activities of the Ashram are carried out.
