Welcome to Badarikashrama

Welcome to Badarikashrama – spiritual center dedicated to education and service to humanity.

Badarikashrama is an oasis of peace, tranquility, simplicity and devotion to Narayana – our Universal Creator.  Founded by respected Swami Omkarananda, we have two spiritual centers located at Madihalli, Karnataka, India and in San Leandro, USA.

At our USA center, we offer daily puja and services, and also offer several events around the year centered around Indian festivals, music, dance, cultural talks and yoga. We also offer a Balasamaskara (cultural education for children) Kendra. You can find upcoming events are on our webpage.

At our India center, we are currently working on the Madihalli School Project (Vidyshala). We are currently building a computer lab in the school in addition to building almost a quarter-mile long retaining wall to provide security to the children.

We invite you to explore the tranquil environment at the ashrama in USA and India and feel the peace and vibrations for yourself!

We recently updated our website to reflect the changes taking place in the Badarikashrama India and USA centers.  We hope you enjoy the website and look forward to your feedback.

Also, look forward to seeing you at Badarikashrama!
