How You Can Help


Parmarth Niketan is happy to announce a 3-month (minimum) residential service program for those interested in primarily engaging themselves in selfless service, integrated as a significant part of their spiritual practice.

Parmarth Niketan is in Rishikesh, India where spirituality flourishes for people of all religions, nations and backgrounds. Under the divine inspiration of Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, Rishikesh has also become the center for a multitude of large-scale divine projects. These include restoring and protecting the beautiful Ganga River, saving the girl child, helping animals, and much more. As our projects grow, so has our need for professional, inspiring, and productive volunteers who can work with us in our mission to achieve a greener, cleaner, and safer tomorrow for all humanity.

If you would like to get involved and volunteer in any one of our projects, please download our Volunteer Application Packet and send us your application (instructions within packet).
