An Appeal—Badarikashrama Expansion Project
Purpose The San Leandro Center supports the community through cultural activities, yoga, meditation, art, music, dance, satsang and puja. From the inspiring vision of “Service of God Through Humanity, the spiritual guidance of Swamiji and the selfless service of our devotees our spiritual community has grown. We are now faced with constraints of limited parking and space and are actively fundraising to expand our ashrama to new facility, three to five acres of land or a pre-existing religious facility in San Leandro or neighboring cities.
Vision The Next Generation USA Center will provide greater opportunities for children to learn about their culture through art, education, and spirituality. Adults and seniors as well as sadhakas can benefit from a conducive atmosphere. We should not forget the ancient teachings of our Rishis. Our culture is based on eternal dharma, inclusive outlook, universal brotherhood, harmony and peace. All faiths and nationalities are welcome with love and respect. We encourage you to do what you can to help fulfill this goal. “Atmano Mokshartham Jagat Hitaya Cha.” (This very life is for Liberation and doing good to Society, loving everyone and contributing to universal understanding & peace) Please come and join us and work together. Thank you.

Message from Swami Omkaranandaji
Om Namo Narayanaya
Ne Me Bhakta Pranashyati -My Devotee Never Perishes
Dear Devotees and Friends
Many Blessings of Sriman Narayayana
We have taken a path of Devotion and Faith. We walked a long way together. Badarikashrama flourished by devotion.
On May 14th, 1984, Mothers Day, we inaugurated Badarikashrama San Leandro Center. It was a joyfull moment that day. Sincere devotees supported this center and day by day and the ashrama flourished. That fruit of our labor manifested a center in Madihalli, Karnataka India. A elegant prarthana Mandir was built, a school was established to accommodate 1200 children and today 700 are studying through the CBSE curriculum. Adjacent to the school is a large 7 acre ornamental garden which the children and devotees enjoy everyday. There is a goshala with 14 cows, A coconut orchard with 400 yeilding and 400 still growing. Our two centers are established, spreading the Vedic Heritage of India and serving humanity through education.
In the San Leandro Center there is a greater demand for our services but the space is limited therefore we are looking to expand to larger property not for from our current location. We are looking for 3 to 5 acres of land or a existing church. The work has already begun. Members and devotees are working together in an effort to Manifest Badarikashrama Next Generation by raising awareness and collecting funds. I invite you to join in this noble effort.
Thank you very much.
May Sriman Narayana bless you with health, happiness and prosperity.
