How To Join Nithyananda Ashram

Nithyananda, or Nithyananda Paramashivam as well as Paramahamsa Nithyananda as he is commonly referred to by his devotees, is a spiritual leader and “godman” in the Hindu tradition of India.

Forty-four meditative caves and a temple sit atop this mountain.

The monastery, founded by the sage Swami (or Nithyananda), may be found to the south of this Kanhangad Town. Swami Nithyananda dug 44 caverns into a mountainside in this forested area. Many people from around the world come to see these caverns every year because of their incredible architecture.


He started the Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam trust, which now operates temples, gurukulas, & ashrams all over the world.

His monastery

Inside the ashram, on top of the caverns, is a shrine known as Nithyananda Bala Mandir, which was styled after the well-known Lord Krishna Somanath Temple

The ashram is also home to a life-size statue of Swami Nithyannda, who is depicted here in a meditative pose. The footprint of Nithyananda’s feet can be seen in marble right in front of temple. This dorsum of the foot is the typical target for foot sculpture. On one piece of marble, though, his footprints are permanently imprinted.

Historically, Swamis would go to one of the 44 caves to meditate for extended periods of time. Next to the caverns is an exhibition space displaying the Swami’s personal linens, tableware, dishes, and devotional items

Nithyananda, his life as a sage

Nithyananda spent many years meditating in the Himalayas after leaving his home in Quilandy, Kerala, at the age of 12. Afterward, he visited other locations in Kerala State including Calicut, Udupi, Mangalore, Kumbla, Tellicheery. During his travels, he came across many monasteries.

During the early 20th century, Nithyananda established himself in Kanhangad. Five kilometres from the main Ashram, on a rocky hillock encircled by 40 acres of woodland, was where he first practised meditation. The area is known as Guruvanam, and it is widely held that he meditated a holy stream of water into being for worshipers to bathe in.

In 1931, the Nithyananda Ashram got established. He stayed there for a long time, eventually moving to Ganeshpuri, a suburb of Bombay, and establishing a second monastery there. In 1961, he passed away in that very room.

How to reach Nithyananda Ashram?

The town of Hosdurg in Kerala State, Southern India, is where the monastery may be found. Buses run between Hosdurg and Kanhangad, the closest major city. The closest major railway station is at Kanhangad, and the city has excellent connections to the rest of the country.
