Vishva Nikethan

Vishva Niketan is Sarvodaya’s spiritual hub and functions as an International Centre for Peace and Mindfulness. 

A place for all to pursue the ideal of inner and outer peace. In creating an atmosphere of tranquillity and serenity close to nature, Vishva Niketan aims to awaken people to their inner spirituality so that they may return to the world beyond to create constructive change.

Unlike many places of worship and mind-training, Vishva Niketan is focused outward as well as inward. Its holistic approach to healing the mind, healing the society, and healing the environment reflects the Vishva Niketan’s unique peace message.
