"We are back to Sarajevo to sub-zero temperatures but we still feel the warmth in our hearts that you have been giving us throughout our stay at Parmarth.  The impressions are settling but there is one that will leave a lasting imprint on our minds and souls:  your genuine warmth and humanity rarely found in our modern, hurried and dehumanized world.  We are now imbued with a new spirit and hope and I am doing my best to share these impressions with my friends.  They all now know about the day-care centers for cows, free education for children, and the fascinating man who is walking the walk.  And they know I am not in habit of complementing people.  May God give you the strength to carry on the mission charted for you.  Please convey our respects and gratitude to Sadhviji.  What an inspiration has she been!  Our love to both of you." - Haris & Selma, Former President and Prime Minister of Bosnia & Herzegovina & his wife

"Writing about my experience at Parmarth Niketan is like asking a mute person to describe the taste of ambrosia that he’s found after years and years of searching, finding, seeking… He would know the taste but he wouldn’t know how to express, he would probably just dance in elation to convey what he’s found…


Parmarth Niketan is truly a heavenly abode in every sense… I’m sure there are various blogs, vlogs, travelogues that are available to describe its beautiful ambiance, its greenery, the peaceful vibrations, the hospitality, etc… but it's only those who’ve come and stayed here who can actually describe the true wealth of love, care, and spirituality that they have experienced at this beautiful place. The splendid Ganga Aarti touched me so deeply, Pujya Swamiji’s Darshan where Swamiji in utmost humility blesses us abundantly with so much love, and Pujya Sadhviji’s Satsang that clears every ounce of doubt that anyone may have, about the path towards the Divine (as she always says… at all levels – spiritual, scientific and experiential levels).


If I may say so in my broken voice, Pujya Swamiji and Pujya Sadhviji are real embodiments of love and devotion.  This experience has moved me so deeply & it is reflected in every aspect of my life…Waiting to be at the banks of Holy Mother Ganga & lotus feet of the Saints again…" - India

"Parmarth Niketan Ashram is the most incredible place to stay in Rishikesh… The atmosphere is so peaceful… The Ashram offers yoga classes twice a day which are worth going to as well. The best part is the Gangaji Aarti that takes place every evening on the ghat just outside the Ashram. You must attend this every evening and absorb the spirituality of Rishikesh. I would only ever stay here again. Radhe Radhe." –London, United Kingdom, review via TripAdvisor

"Sadat Pranam.  First, last and always, my deep gratitude and immense thanks for warmly hosting my Mausaji and cousins at the divine ashram, at my mere asking.  They called me as soon as they reached there on 1st and thanked me for putting them up in such a pristine abode, and called every morning and evening with the same sentiments. So much that, I felt like joining them immediately!!  I will always be grateful for your kindness and will pay my obeisances whenever I am there." - Jaipur, India

"I wanted to reach out and thank you for such an incredible weekend at your ashram. To be honest I was a bit skeptical at first when my parents told me I would be spending a week at an ashram in India with little internet connectivity, but my time spent at the ashram was extremely meaningful and surpassed any and all expectations I had! The environment of the ashram and the beautiful Ganga Aarti definitely made a mark on me and I feel like something inside me has changed." - USA

"I felt so honored by your hospitality and that of the staff of Parmarth Niketan.  The first night of Aarti, we were brought to sit close to the fire. We were uplifted by young men chanting with devotion, the beauty of the music, and the pageantry culminating in honoring those committed to environmental care.  Among the insights that I gained from my time at your Ashram (note- Parmarth spells correct as “warmth”) was that a religious institution is only as large as its purpose. In your case, I am particularly taken by the worldly focus of WASH and the marshaling of resources toward healing the world." - USA
