Love, love unconditionally. Realise this Love is ever flowing - the more you give, the more you receive. Just give for the sake of giving.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda is always demonstrating Love through his giving; all his actions are for the benefit of others. His Grace and generosity are never-ending and he never asks for anything in return.
Much of what is offered is free to devotees and guests, including Darshans, pujas, festivals, worship services, OM Chanting, music, art, and online Satsangs. All of these programs and more are made possible through the ongoing generous support of devotees.
3-Ways to Say Thank You
If Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s Grace has blessed your life, you believe in his teachings, and want to take an active role in supporting his worldwide mission, there are three substantial ways you can contribute:
- Become a Friend of Bhakti Marga
- Donate in-kind gifts of goods or services
- Offer your time and energy through seva
All of these actions help to spread Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s message of Divine Love across the planet, touching lives as yours has been touched, and helping to bring about real change on the planet.
Become a Friend of Bhakti Marga
The Friends of Bhakti Marga Program is for those fortunate enough to be able to share their love and support through financial contributions. Every donation, no matter the amount, is greatly appreciated and recognized as a reflection of your love for Guruji and his mission. What we ask is that you give on a regular basis. This helps us continue to provide free programs and plan for the future, spreading the Bhakti Marga mission worldwide. All these activities, and the very existence of Shree Peetha Nilaya, have been made possible through the financial support of our friends. Please give what you can and know that all the contributions help others experience the Divine Love of our beloved Guruji.

In-Kind Goods and Services
In-kind goods and services are items needed and used by Bhakti Marga ashrams, temples and groups all around the world. It could include office supplies, printing services and advertising space; building supplies such as lumber, tools and fuel; puja offerings like flowers, ghee, and elements (milk, yogurt, sugar, honey, kumkum); and food items such as produce and canned goods.

Seva means ‘self-less service’, or giving without asking or expecting anything in return. Seva is a sadhana that helps us move beyond ourselves to caring and serving others.
There are many ways to do seva.
- Personally: As you do your own daily sadhana with a focus on love and offering the fruits of your action to God and Guru, you will grow and change and others around you will grow and change as well.
- In community: You can do OM Chanting circles and share your experiences of Paramahamsa Vishwananda with others.
- Direct service: Offer your time, talent and expertise to one of the Bhakti Marga ashrams, temples and centres around the world. Shree Peetha Nilaya has a Bhakti Seva Program which offers such an opportunity. Contact a centre near you or your country coordinator to find out how you can help.

The Blessing of Giving
Your contribution is a beautiful way to say thank you to Guruji. True giving is done out of love, without an expection or desire for anything in response, not even a thank you. However, there is a profound blessing that comes when you give from your heart; the more you give, the more you receive and the more bhakti grows and stay with you. Everyone who contributes, whether it is financial, in-kind goods and services, or through seva, receives benefit from the spiritual fruits that come from all the activities their contribution supports.
