BramhaVidya Mandir, Address: Paunar, Dist.Wardha Maharashtra, India. Tel-91 07152 288388, 91 07152 288081

At Kashikabas, Rajasthan (Birthplace of late Shri. Jamanalaji Bajaj) Vinoba declared the formation of Bramha Vidya Mandir at Paunar, He said, “I felt the lack of search for knowledge of the Supreme in our activities and felt this more keenly after Bapu passed away. I became convinced that unless we had this spiritual foundation, our superstructure, our various programs would not last. Without the attainment of Brahmavidya, (knowledge of the Supreme) the well-spring of our thought would dry up, the current would no longer flow fully and freely. Having reached this conclusion, I decided to start a Brahmavidya Mandir.  I have described “Brahmavidya Mandir” as a place where one may either attain the highest-the Supreme Vision or find one's whole effort gone for nothing. There is no other institution where there is such an element of risk. Here it is a case of all or nothing—infinity, or zero! We cannot offer any lesser odds. I am constrained to do this thing (establish this Ashram), even if I get is zero. I am not interested in half measures; I must have the infinite or nothing”. This ashram was established on 13th March 1959.
