Namaste and Welcome to Badarikashrama

Badarikashrama, located in San Leandro, California was founded by Sri Swami Omkaranandaji in 1984. Named after the Himalayan site where Vedavyasa received and taught the Vedic scriptures, the ashrama stresses the Vedic teaching that the Truth is One and comes in many forms. The Center provides many activities for those interested in the diverese heritage of India. Through spiritual, cultural and  educational activities, the center is a place where young people can learn about the rich heritage of India and people from all walks of life can find peace in an atmosphere of trust and acceptance.  

Registered as a non profit organization 501c3 dedicated to the twin ideals of Self Realization and the service of

God through humanity.

Badarikashrama Expansion Project
 Fostering the Classical Culture of India and Vedantic Spiritual Wisdom 


For thirty-eight years, Badarikashrama- San Leandro has been serving the Bay Area community, fostering  the rich classical culture of India and spiritual Vedantic knowledge. We welcome people of all faiths, race, identity and background. Through cultural activities and worship, Badarikashrama offers a place where people from all walks can find acceptance and peace. Opportunities for children and young people provide  both safe recreation as well as education focused on respect for all, service to family and community, and strong intellectual and spiritual deveolopment.   


From the inspiring vision of “Service of God Through Humanity, the spiritual guidance of Swami Omkaranandaji and the selfless service of our devotees, our spiritual community has grown.  In order to accomodate this growth we are seeking a new facility that will provide the ample parking and larger physical spaces to accomodate more cultural and spiritual activities.  At the center of it all will be a beautiful Prarthana Mandir.
