Nityananda Dhyana Mandir

Anandashram is an ashram built in the spiritual strong area of Bevinkoppa that is known as a Siddha Bhoomi. The places in and around the ashram have a great spiritual significance from ancient periods. The ashram was raised here by Swami Vijayananda gradually as everything kept falling into place with the blessings of Gurudev Bhagwan Nityananda and many other blessed evolved beings.

How the ashram came into existence

The village was never a self-chosen place by Swamiji. He had come to this place during his wandering days after living and serving many divine souls in places around Bailhongal. Once, he walked down to this place and took shelter near the ancient Mallikarjun Temple (ashram is walkable distance from here). One night when he was sitting at this temple, which is near the Mallaprabha waters, he had a vivid experience of seeing bright lights that he calls “equivalent to thousands tubelights” lit up that area. Later he learnt the significance of the Mallikarjun temple and how it housed a very ancient stone Shiva Lingam. To add to it, there are Bilva Patra trees all around here and a huge neem tree that was indicated by many evolved beings to have a Samadhi of a Siddha under the tree.

It was here that Swami Vijayanand spent numerous days and nights doing the japa of “Om Namo Bhagwathe Nityanandaya” and his only possession was a small photo of Bhagwan Nityananda. Once after a man with piles was cured by Swamiji’s given bhasm (holy ash), word spread around quickly and people began assisting him with a place to stay. Slowly a hut was erected for him in a piece of land donated to him and gradually people came to him with their worries of daily life. Within a few years the ashram flourished, with the grace of Bhagwan Nityananda, to what it is currently. Shortly there after many great spiritual Masters and Saints were found to arrive, visit and spend time at this place.

Visitors from around the world

Today, seekers on spiritual pursuits visit the ashram from all over the world (USA, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany) and from various states of India for spiritual benefits and as a pilgrimage place or for a spiritual stay of rejuvenation and penance. Most frequent visitors are the devotees of Bhagwan Nityananda who are bonded here with the relevance of the grace of the great Master Nityananda, who had walked into the home of Swami Vijayananda in Manjeshwar, Karnataka, before 23 years of his birth. Bhagwan’s grace can be experienced here in the vicinity of Swamiji and also various parts of the ashram. Click to see visitors,

Reaching Anandashram

Anandashram is situated in Bevinkoppa village, which is 6 kms away from the bus hub of Bailhongal town that is situated 45 Kms east of Belgaum city in Karnataka State of INDIA. Since Belgaum city is very well connected with airport, railway station and bus terminals, reaching Bailhongal is at equal ease with buses leaving Belgaum Bus Stand every 5 minutes. From Bailhongal there are buses to Bevinkoppa as per scheduled timings. The quickest source would be the regular minibus and autos running to and fro every half hour.

 

Nityananda Dhyana Mandir means the “Meditation Temple of Nityananda”.

Nityananda is a state. The state of Eternal Bliss, which was introduced to the world by Parabrahma Nityananda, who came in a human body but was the manifestation of the Supreme itself. He was mysteriously found as a baby in the deep jungles of Kerala by a poor woman named Uniamma, passing that way. She saw that the baby was guarded by a cobra until she came and it soon left, prompting her to pick the baby and bring it home. Before passing away, she offered the child named “Raman” to her wealthy landlord and lawyer Shri. Ishwar Iyer, who then raised him until about the age of 13. But the child was a divine incarnate and he could be not be caught in the clutches of Maya as any other ordinary being. The child began wandering alone since his early adolescence into the Himalayas and other parts of the world, undocumented. He appeared exactly at the house of his fosterfather’s death and fulfilled his father’s life-long wish of having “darshan” (divine glimpse) of Suryanarayan (Sun God) that he worshiped all his life, and that eternal peace and bliss that he received just before his physical death, he exclaimed to the child, “You have brought me eternal bliss; you are Nityananda! (eternal bliss).”  Since then he was known as NITYANANDA.

Nityananda walked unattached and always immersed in that Eternal Bliss. He touched countless lives wherever he went and soon his extraordinary feats and miracles came to be known in the Kerala, Karnataka and Maharastra, which were the three states that he was seen most in. After having spent about 25 years in and around Kanhangad, Kerala, he then moved to Ganeshpuri near Mandagni Mountains of Maharastra, where he spent the rest of his life in this physical embodiment doing many wonderous transformations into the people’s lives and also blessing hundreds of Yogis and seekers, from around the globe, who then became great torch bearers on the path of truth and light, influences lakhs of other seekers around the globe.

Out of the many lives that Nityananda profoundly touched, Swami Vijayananda was another soul who was immensely touched and benefitted by the grace of Parabrahma Nityananda. Swami Vijayananda then took up the mission of spreading the divine love and light of his eternal master and walked the path of the Avadhootas and Yogis, alone and in total surrender. Having undergone a life of extreme hardship and challenges, Swami Vijayananda made it through all odds, never failing to touch countless lives he came across. As destiny and grace had called upon, he finally was made to settle in a village called Bevinkoppa, where this ashram sprouted out on it’s own, which was proclaimed by many saints and seers as the blessed land of Siddhas.

It was in this land that Nityananda Dhyana Mandir manifested, where Oneness is the highest practiced quality, where people and beings regardless of their religion, caste, culture, faiths are accepted, where all live in Oneness. The visitors to Nityananda Dhyana Mandir have been many, many Avadhoots, saints, and mystics, who have meditated and stayed here, which makes this place even more blessed. A place where Swamiji lives very much in touch with all around, eating with them, talking with them, meditating with them and living with them.

Nityananda Dhyana Mandir began as a small place of worship, next to the humble hut of Swami Vijayananda, but soon visitors began pouring in after the many miracles and profound transformation people began witnessing after coming here. Soon, this grew up to an ashram that all these years have been serving humanity in various ways with many humanitarian projects undertaken.  Hundreds of poor village children regularly have meals here that is organized under the Balbhojan activities, which was the highest service propagated by Bhagwan Nityananda though his own such examples of feeding poor children.

Few children of the poor villagers live and serve the ashram and also simultaneously receiving food, education and other spiritual training from the ashram. The biggest project towards helping mankind was in the opening of the Ayurvedic and natural healing and rejuvenation centernamed Nityananda Arogya Dham that also has a residential doctor and all facilities much amidst the natural setting and vicinity of the ashram.

The activities at the Nityananda Dhyana Mandir begins at 5 a.m. in the morning, though Swamiji’s routines begin at 3:30 am. The whole day has various divine activities that keeps the atmosphere of the ashram vibrant.
