Niradhara has studied Yoga since 1973. Eighteen years ago, while beginning Ashram life, she was initiated into Agnihotra and as an ardently devoted sadhaka was invited by the Master Shree Vasant, her Yajnyachara, to his home & Goshala (cow sanctuary) in India for Somayajnyas. Here, she discovered a timeless Mother, the River Narmada and a mighty Maharani (Great Queen) Ahilya who ruled the region from this Fort which encompasses SwAr Ashram on its easternmost corner. Swami Anantram gave Niradhara Diksha (initiation) as a Swamini (independant female spiritual teacher). These immense Feminine Energies nurture us along with our guest-students here at SwAr Ashram at the banks of the most sacred River Narmada.

༺ 🔥 ༻ Welcome! Narmade Har! If you contact me for an e-visit, or are planning to visit me in India, i am here to assist you on your path to my hOMe, SwAr Ashram, enter the door in this photo. Here I offer Yoga Immersion Retreats and Private Yoga Experiences. I gratefully Manage & Direct this Ashram as a sevaka because it was bequeathed to my care by Swami Anant Ram, a Siddhi Guru, my Guru, who invited me to be in residence with him in January 2009. He departed his body in Mahasamadhi in November 2012 but is still an active presence here spiritually. I am the Mother (Amma) of this Gurukula Ashram & Vedantic Library, with a riverview Yoga Shala, where i share the Yogic Arts & Sciences with you. The joy of opening this location to adepts, seekers and heritage loving tourists is my most cherished dharma. I am at the service of those who wish to visit us. We are now listed on tripadvisor.com. It is my joy to share with you the experiencial authentic technology of Yoga, from its esoteric roots. We form a relationship of support as you become part of our Ashram family. Since SwAr Ashram doesn’t have amenities for overnighters, we have an exclusive arrangement to lodge our guests in the 6 rooms of the Gatehouse to the Maheshwar Palace, Labboo’z Lodge & Cafe where all the modern comforts are availed in a masterful heritage restoration. It is just a 3 minute riverside walk along the Fort wall.
Amma @ SwAr Ashram – NARMADE HAR!
