Ashram at Hyderabad

The Sundara Chaitanya Ashram at Hyderabad is built in the country side away from the din of the city. It is situated 40 km away from city on Medak highway near Dundigal village. It is a picturesque construction both beautiful and sacred, cradled in the lap of Mother Nature. Overlooking green fields and clustered around by mango and guava orchards the ashram provides an excellent atmosphere for serene contemplation. The Ashram is a huge complex spreading over an area of 13 acres. It has in it - Bhagawan Murali Krishna Mandir, Dhyana Mandir, Shruti Mandiram, Sarada Nilayam, Guru Mandiram, Annapurna kshetram, sant kuteers, Atithi kuteers, Vyasa kuteer, Tree House, karyalayam, Nada chaitanyam studio, Reception, Books and cassettes, sales counter, Chaitanya Hospital, Andhra Bank, buildings providing accomodation for devotees namely Mathura, Vamsi, Dwaraka, Yamuna, Kaivalyam, Sudarsanam, dormitories, Goshala and quarters for security and servants. All the buildings are set among beautiful landscaped gardens.Three gigantic archways exquisitely designed and erected over wide roads lead us into a spiritual world of divine excellence.


The Exquisite Archways : On entering the Ashram the world will pass into oblivion leaving us to ourselves in an absorbed reverie. The grandeur and massiveness of the buildings; the lushed still atmosphere in the premises ; the joy and felicity that the temple bestows; the charm, grace and glory of the presiding deity - Lord Krishna - are all lovely beyond words. The hospitality of the inmates who are always busy, active and yet serene and meditative reflects the magnanimity of the glorious head of the institution Parama Pujya Swamiji under whose auspices the ashram runs in a smooth, organized and systematic manner. A multitude of consistent and steadfast Satsangees who feel themselves greatly indebted to their Guru throng the ashram on Thursdays, Sundays and on festival days, to have the darshan of Pujya Gurudev, hear him speak, seek his blessings and partake of the divine food served in the Annapurna Kshetra. During the Birthday celebrations of Param Pujya Gurudev in December, devotees from across the state and abroad come in thousands to take part in the Annual Jatiya Satsang Sadas that may stretch to any length of time from one week to ten days. The sessions help us look at life from a wholly new angle and we understand very soon that wealth, name, fame and all other earthly possessions are insignificant in comparison to the eternal happiness that we are in search of and this, we realize is our true self. "You traverse the world in search of happiness which is within the reach of every man - his own essential nature - himself", says Swamiji.

Here is a brief description about the important places in the Ashram.

Sri Krishna Mandir: The temple which is 82 feet high is a magnificent two storied edifice and has a radius of 36 feet. On the first floor is the Krishna mandir and on the ground floor is the Dhyana mandir. The entire structure rises majestically from the middle of a circular pond decorated with fountains and beautiful statuettes depicting the life of Sri Krishna. All this ornamentation with a high aesthetic value was solely planned and designed by Swamiji and built within an unbelievably short span of ten months. Truly, therefore, the ashram mirrors the spiritual brilliance, beauty and grandeur of Pujya Swami Sundara Chaitanyanandaji Maharaj.

Guru Mandir: With a life size portrait of Pujya Gurudev and Guru Padukas in the centre on a raised platform surrounded by photo gallery picturing Sundara Chaitanya Movement at home and abroad.

Sruti Mandir: Here, the voice of the divine reverberates in a human soul. It is a congregation where the Master of infinite wisdom speaks in a tone of absolute command. The ashram echoes with his mellifluous voice and music. Intelligent inquiry is made into the contents of the Upanishads, the Brahmasutras and the Bhagavad-Gita; and scientific conclusions are convincingly presented to the seekers by the Master. A single discourse heard here through the divine visage of Gurudev is worth a month’s study of voluminous books.

Saraswathi Mandir: Swamiji’s sacred abode - the majestic blue edifice denotes high ideals, lofty aims and noble convictions of Swamiji. It stands calm and quiet in the still purple vault of heaven as if in meditation.

Kuteers: Individual residence for Brahmacharis and Brahmacharinis - a group of young celibates inspired, initiated, guided and fathered by Pujya Swamiji, their Sadguru on the path of spirituality - the future lamp-holders of Sanatana Dharma.

Chaitanya Dispensary: A charitable dispensary with specialists in pediatrics, neurology, E.N.T. and dentistry giving free services and medicines to the poor and needy. A general physician who is an inmate of the ashram is available round the clock. The Trust has plans to expand the dispensary into a full-fledged hospital by the end of the year.

Chaitanya Dispensary: Mathura : A three-storeyed circular building with a beautiful rock created amidst green lawns in the middle. It has 45 rooms for the devotees.

Vamsi: A double-storeyed building with 26 rooms.

Dwaraka: A three storeyed palatial building with rooms and huge hall.

Kaivalyam: A majestic edifice - with a huge lecture-hall in the ground floor and forty rooms on the upper two floors. The rooms are extra ordinarily spacious with modern amenities overlooking green fields and the neighbouring countryside.

Yamuna: Is a collection of satsang halls built by different branches of satsangs for accommodating their people at the time of annual celebrations and other events in the ashram.

Brindavan: A building similar to Yamuna having 30 satsang halls opposite Sruti Mandiram.

Dormitory: A huge building with about 10 spacious halls for ashram devotees and other formal guests during annual celebrations.
