Tucked away in a quiet area, away from the bustling town centre of Madanapalle, The Satsang Foundation Ashram is a sanctuary for spiritual seekers from all backgrounds.

As you walk around the modest but hallowed campus you will come across multiple places for silent contemplation and swadhyaya or self-study.

The ashram does not hold activities on a regular basis as most visitors choose to spend quiet time in Babaji’s shrine, around the Shivalaya and the Peepal Tree under which Sri M holds satsangs during Gurupurnima and Mahashivratri events.

The ashram has several new additions that have arisen in the last few years such as a Yogashala with a consecrated Patanjali temple, Gaushala with desi cows, new office building, Rangashala: a fully-fledged audio video studio and the upcoming Swaasthya Hospital which is located walking distance from the main ashram area.

For those with a service oriented mindset, The Satsang Vidyalaya and The Satsang Swasthya Kendra are located just beyond the official ashram boundaries. Both places provide opportunities to offer your services towards community but please note that permission to visit and volunteer at these places must be sought ahead of time.

Simple accommodation and vegetarian food are offered at nominal cost. All meals contain onion and garlic.
