Welcome to the extremely backward regions of Karnataka border. More so Pavagada in Tumkur district. The burning priority for the survival and progress for the locals was health care - long term health care: Cure from Leprosy, TB, Polio etc.
Founded in 1991 by Swami Japanandaji this centre in Pavagada is revered by the locals for their good health and well-being. Activities of the sevaashrama include celebrating the our festivals and birthdays of the great saints and sages of India - specifically Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sharada Devi and Swami Vivekananda along with periodic spiritual retreats, lectures by eminent persons, and cultural programmes.
