The Heartfulness Way

From the complexity of mind
to the simplicity of heart

Kamlesh D.Patel

Welcome

All seekers of spirituality from around the world are welcome to come and meditate here,in the purity and sanctity of the atmosphere at Kanha Shanti Vanam.

Kanha Shanti Vanam is located in the suburbs of Hyderabad close to the Bangalore highway. Magnificent in its conception and design, tranquil in its atmosphere, Kanha blends the beauty of nature with sprawling facilities being built to cater to the future of the Heartfulness movement.

The construction of this high place of Sahaj Marg has been progressing for a few years: The superb Babuji memorial has been unveiled; the first set of apartment blocks have been handed over; the permanent dormitories will be operational shortly; the construction of the grand meditation hall is now underway. Thousands of trees have been planted and the entire campus is awash with a hue of green. Over the next few years, we will see the transformation of this venue into a veritable garden of Eden, befitting its name. More Details
