Saints of India Museum
A Hindu saint is the ultimate human example of living a life of love, devotion, and humility by having a complete and total focus on the Lord.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda considers these saints His friends, and has created a one-of-a-kind museum here at The Ashram to introduce everyone to their extraordinary lives.
Sacred Places to Go Within
Whether it’s for prayer, meditation, yoga or some quiet contemplation our Ashram is full of places to sit and turn within. From the temple to the Babaji Cave to the Lakshmi Gardens you’re certain to find a place where your heart sings.
The Timeless Grace of Saints
Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s lifelong passion for honouring them began as a young boy, and ever since, He has been researching, collecting and carefully documenting these saints, many of them hard to find and mostly unknown outside of India.
Opening hours: 07:00 to 22:00.
Why a Museum?
Many saints are unassuming, humble people who challenged themselves and lived for a higher purpose. Most don’t care about making themselves known. However, their stories are astonishing and they can be inspirational to us and our modern-day lives.
Fortunately for us all, everything that a saint has touched or used is infused with the energy of the saint and it does not diminish through time. Seeing their photos plus their actual belongings, mala, or walking stick helps bring them closer to us and provides blessings as well.
Learning about their stories and the great difficulties they went through helps inspire us to persevere in our own life challenges, too. Plus, for hundreds of years, people have reported blessings in their lives after venerating saint relics, which shows that the saints’ work continues even today.
Meet a few of our saints
Paramahamsa Vishwananda is so eager to share these extraordinary souls with the world. His goal is for everyone to know and appreciate the lives of these saints by giving them a place to be seen and honoured. In His position as a Mahamandaleshwar, Guruji promotes Sanatanan Dharma, ‘the eternal way’, and this impressive collection keeps the memory of these saints alive.
