Shree Peetha Nilaya
"In ancient times, Yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place."
Sri Swami Vishwananda
Shree Peetha Nilaya is a center in the beautiful German countryside of the Taunus region just outside the small village of Springen. The center is in the middle of Europe and easily accessible to everyone wherever they are.
This center is a place for spiritual advancement and unity of all sincere spiritual seekers irrespective of faith, path or progress. It is a very privileged location blessed with great natural beauty. This surrounding landscape, enables everyone on a spiritual path to receive and benefit from Divine inspiration through the connection to God in nature.
Shree Peetha Nilaya means the dwelling place of the Divine Mother – a place of higher consciousness, where worries and anxieties are dissolved through bhakti.
The Sanskrit term bhakti marga literally signifies path (marga) of devotion (bhakti), to Divine love. It is through this path, this way of life that the center is run.
"The more you advance in spirituality the more you will advance in discovering this love and the more your path will become clear. So this is the main foundation of spirituality, love, just love and nothing else."
Sri Swami Vishwananda
It is the home and international center of living spiritual master Sri Swami Vishwananda who fully embodies bhakti. Shree Peetha Nilaya is also the home of 40 full time and part time residents who help to run and support the center and the mission to enable everyone to connect to this Divine love.
Currently Shree Peetha Nilaya is undergoing construction and renovation and is therefore closed to guests and visitors. The center is being developed in order to comply fully with all German building regulations.
The scale of this project makes it necessary to ask for cooperation from all those interested and committed to supporting this place and its vision and mission. At present there is a fundraising programme that is vital to the completion and official opening of Shree Peetha Nilaya.
