OUR CAMPUSES HAVE HOSTED GUESTS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Thousands of people have already made use of this opportunity by participating in events, courses and tours at three main locations.
We look forward to welcoming you at one or more of these centres, where you can have the profound experience of deep silence in the vicinity of a large peace-creating group, and enjoy live recitations by the Maharishi Vedic Pandits.
THE BRAHMASTHAN OF INDIA
The Brahmasthan (geographical centre) of India, home of our main peacecreating group, where the Maharishi Vedic Pandits conduct large peace performances daily, including National Yagyas. You can attend residential courses of one week or more together with visitors from many countries around the world.
Since 2011, the international guest facility at the geographical centre – Brahmasthan – of India has been offering stays of one or more weeks for guests who come to hear live Vedic recitation.
Guests enjoy a high level of comfort at the newly constructed Bijauri International Campus in the midst of rural India. Well-furnished suites with bedroom and private bathroom, freshly prepared and delicious meals, and excellent purified drinking water are complemented by fast Internet access. It is an opportunity for deep rest, with extended practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programme, comfortable walks and delightful company. The daily routine includes experience of live recitation by Maharishi Vedic Pandits who visit the Bijauri campus each day plus lectures on the practice of TM and profound knowledge for development of consciousness.
When visitors experience the magnificence of the Brahmasthan they are motivated to support the project. Here is a comment from a visitor. “I remember with absolute clarity my time at the Brahmasthan last February with the Canadian group. I’ll be more than happy to help support the Vedic Pandits. I do donate to the Brahmananda Saraswati Fund and feel it’s a privilege to be able to help even in a small way.” SEClick here to listen to a video recording of another course participant discussing his experience visiting the Brahmasthan of India.
A highlight of the courses is a weekly visit to the huge Yagya Hall to witness the live performance of Atirudrabhishek – the powerful Yagya for world peace performed by 1,331 Pandits. A truly transformative experience.
The season runs from October to March each year when the climate is most comfortable.

Our guests commonly remark that the experience at the Brahmasthan is life-transforming, deeply blissful and fulfilling. In this February 2016 video our course participants talk about visiting the Brahmastan of India.
