Paramahamsa Vishwananda's mission is 'to open the hearts of mankind'. One way to open our heart is to focus on others more than ourselves. A selfless way to do this is by financially supporting those who are dedicating their time, energy and lives to serve God, guru and His mission. The Friends of Bhakti Marga (FoBM) program makes it possible for all these people to serve you too!
In Ancient Times
In ancient times ashrams did their best to be self-sustaining. The king and local people would also contribute because they knew that all the prayers and rituals done in the ashram would benefit them as well.
Positive merits are generated when daily prayers and labour are done with God in mind and are selflessly offered to the Lord in gratitude. The blessings this invokes are bestowed upon all those who have contributed to the welfare of the ashram.
Long ago, cows were considered the greatest gift you could give to an ashram because they provided everything the brahmins needed for their rituals. In today's modern ashram, what is most needed is your financial support. The funds collected allow the mission to serve for the good of humanity.
Your support is most appreciated.
Support those who Serve
The Friends of Bhakti Marga program makes it possible to support more than 100 full-time residents who have dedicated their lives to serving Guruji, His guests and the international mission, headquartered in Shree Peetha Nilaya.
Whether their contribution is seen or unseen, every seva position is important and contributes to the success of the entire mission. Every task is done for the good of all.
Everyone benefits from the services rendered, whether they are guests in the ashram, first-time participants in an online darshan, or repeat visitors to our free online offerings.
Join us in serving humanity.
Here's How You Can Help
Friends of Bhakti Marga is a membership program funded by those fortunate enough to be able to share their love and support through financial contributions. Each Friend commits to make regular donations, either on a monthly or annual basis. Every Euro is put to good use wherever it is needed most, creating opportunities for people to learn, grow and serve on their spiritual path.
