“Open your heart to those around you and I will be there. The blessings of the Guru Parampara will find you wherever you are on the globe.”
There is no enlightenment without helping the humanity…
“While we are here on this planet we have to do something noble with our lives,” Sri Kaleshwar says. He teaches that all of us must help wherever we can. Our actions must leave a sweet fragrance and be a great message that lives long after we are gone. This is the dharma of each person. Real moksha (enlightenment) is when someone looks in your eyes with gratitude because you have done something to remove their suffering. Swami’s life is a living example of this. He tirelessly serves everyone who comes before him. It is an expression of his pure devotion and dedication to his master, Shirdi Baba.

Charity and Selfless Service (Seva)
- Sri Kaleshwar on Seva
“Whenever you have free time on Sundays or any day, go to the hospital, go to the old age homes. Once you go with some bread and some fruits to the old age home, if you take care of them, the next Sunday they’ll be waiting for you. If you do it often, they start pulling you. You become really good friends. Whenever they see you, their eyes become dazzling. You can see the real happiness in them.
That happiness will come to you. Later, whenever you need help, somebody will come take care of you. God will send that someone whenever you need help. Create good karma and leave it. One day, when you need it, that good karma you produced in the cosmic will come back to you. It won’t be wasted."

- Swami’s Samadhi, Dwarkamai, Penukonda
This video gives a beautiful impression of the Dwarkamai in Penukonda as it looks now. The first reconstruction work has been finished. Taking Mother’s darshan and touching Swami’s samadhi and receiving its powerful silence is an amazing experience for students visiting the ashram.
