About Us

The Siddha Ashram Center (SAC), a  501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is dedicated to providing a peaceful natural environment for people from all walks of life to learn, experience, and practice yogic meditation and lifestyle wellness disciplines to enrich spiritual development and maintain a healthy body and peaceful mind.

Swami Nardanand (also known as Swamiji or “beloved monk”) has a rare presence that radiates peace.  He comes from a long lineage of remarkable spiritual masters. Swamiji is an Ayurvedic specialist and global teacher whose teachings blend ancient Vedic and modern scientific understanding. 

In 1990, he founded the Siddha Ashram in the holy city of Ujjain in central India. The ashram is located along the banks of the Shipra River in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh, India, one of the four major Kumbha Mela sites.
