Suggested Activity #3 Nityananda Ashram
This Ashram is located about 20 km south of the Thalathoor heritage. This ashram was founded by Bhagawan Nithyananda, who was one of the greatest Yogis of modern times. He was a silent Yogi, who communicated through eloquent silence. He taught no one through words, but his whole life itself was a teaching. He never preached or gave lectures. He spoke rarely, but he was a universal teacher. It is believed that the great Mahatma Gandhi came to him to seek guidance. It is a well-known fact that, after meeting with Bhagawan Nithyananda, Gandhiji introduced the historical “Quit India movement”. He also coined the “Do or Die” slogan to support the movement in the year 1942.
