The Rudra Valley region of the Rudraprayag district in the Garhwal Himalaya offers some of the most inspiring views of the Himalayan range. As part of the region known as Dev Bhumi (Land of the Gods), in the Uttharkhand state of India, it is also host to some important temples of the Hindu faith. The Tunganath temple at 3800 meters high is at once one of the highest Shiva temples known, and at the same time one of the most accessible. A 3 kilometer trek from the trail head at Chopta village on a sturdy, even path, gets you there. This will be one of our key destinations together with a number of other temples of the area.

By the kindness of an anonymous donor, we are now in the process of establishing a shrine to the Divine Mother in our Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama. The shrine will be next to where the present crystal Shivalinga is luminously established.
1. In this shrine, a crystal Shri Yantra will be established on 31 March 2012 morning.
We came from East-Asia, China, the Middle East, Europe, North and South America, different parts of India…. We were told we were the most international TTP group ever. From all corners of the globe, we gathered together in the sadhaka grama, a village of spiritual aspirants in Rishikesh, to learn about ourselves by delving deep into the dimensions of our body, prana and mind and the Centre of Consciousness at the core of our very being.
