With Peace.–Vishwashanthi Ashram,Arishinakunte,Bangalore

Last sunday after a hevy lunch some & some Play station.It was time for a small outing with the family.SO we visited the little known ashram at the outskirts of bangalore called the Vishwashanthi Ashram.

It is located on the Bangalore Tumkur highway, in Arishinakunte village in Nelamangala Taluk. It is located at a distance of around 25 km from Bangalore city.
To reach the ashram from yeshwanthpur.Take the toll higway to Tumkur & then exit at the first sign board that shows a left sign to nelmangala.
The ashram is just about 500mts fro this exit on your left.

Vishwa Shanti Ashram was established by Sant Keshavadas, whose organization is known as the Temple of Comic Religion in the west. Sant Keshavadas was born in 1934 in Bhadragiri, a small village in Karnataka.

The first thing that catches your attention while entering the ashram is a huge 36 foot tall statue of Vittala, an avatar of Vishnu at a distance.

And exactly in front, at the foot of the statue is a Lakshmi-Narayana shrine.

Towards the right of the statue of the vittala , is the entrance to the Bhagvad Gita temple. En route to this, we see the seven rivers – Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Cauvery, Narmada, Sindhu and Saraswati – depicted by seven statues.

The bhagvad geetha temple is home to the vishwa roopa (The real form of vishnu) statue.

There is a gayathri temple also in the same building which is quite lovely.

This entire building is depicted as being pulled by the chariot on which Shree Krishna is giving Geetha updesh to Arjuna.

This structure is quite nicely creted.

With a mamoth chriot with horses being depicted.

We sat in front of the vishwa roopa statue for some time.This temple has the entire Bhagwad Geetha inscribed on the walls around it in four languages.That was quite amazing.

Go here if you need a quick break from your otherwise busy life’s.The ashram is quite big i guess around 20 acres or somthing.And there are couple of parks inside were kids could have some fun.
