The Ashram established by Sadguru Bhagwan Shreedhar Swami Maharaj is at Varadpur ,near Sagar. This is a sacred place in the Sahyadri ranges where the greatest of sages like Maharshi Agastya and Maharshi Vyas had done their sadhana thousands of years ago. Maharshi Vyas had established a temple of the Goddess Jagdamba which is still there and there is also the cave where he used to meditate in solitude. His Samadhi is also there. He had spent his last years here. All the disciples visit this Ashram as they believe that Swamiji although is omnipresent he is in the Ashram always, even when he is with the disciples wherever they are and hence the frequent visits to the Ashram, to seek the blessings of Swamiji. It is a very picturesque place, full of Nature's bounties worth visiting even if you are not a disciple of Swamiji or are not inclined towards spiritualism, after your visit there, you will be!
Shreedhar Teerth: is a constant source of water running 24 hours a day created by Swamiji, the origin of which no one knows and a pool for the storage of water is constructed there. This water which we the disciples believe will run till the existence of the Earth is purest in quality, not found in the areas around and has a fragrance of its own. Even when stored for years together in any clean container, it never looses the fragrance or is never contaminated. Itis used by the disciples as the sacred Teerth made available to them by Swamiji for use during calamities in their family lives or during the pooja.
