Ashrams/ Centers

“Ashram” is another word for Spiritual Center.  In the typical       Haidakhandi Ashram, there is a temple with the daily ceremonies and worship rituals. Many of these places have accommodations for guests overnight. If you would like to visit any of Babaji’s Ashrams, it is always good etiquette to call ahead and make arrangements. You ask about schedule, protocol, dress code, and if there is anything you could bring that would help the place. You can also inquire about suggested donation to stay over night, to be clear about  what is expected.

"In 1970 SHRI BABAJI appeared in the historic holy cave situated at the foot of Mount Adi Kailash at Haidakhan, Kumaon. He materialised as a youth of 18 or 20 years.

Babaji spent most of the 14 years of this manifestation at Haidakhan where he established a beautiful ashram, and built nine temples on the bank of the River Gautami Ganga. The Haidakhan area and Kumaon Mount Kailash have been spiritually graced with the power of Lord Shiva’s tapasya (penance) for centuries. The main temple at Haidakhan was constructed by Old Haidakhan Baba Himself.

The sacred Maha Shakti Dhuni, located by the Gautami Ganga river in the gardens below Haidakhan Ashram was built with Babaji's own hands and inaugurated  in August 1983."
