Being the first Ashram founded by Pujya Guruji Rishi Prabhakar, this Ashram has a special significance. It was Bhagwan Visweswariah’s (Guruji’s Guru) wish that his mortal remains be consecrated at the first Ashram which would be started by his dearest disciple – Guruji Rishi Prabhakar.

Accordingly, Bhagwan’s Samadhi was erected at the Guru Mandir in Dehri. We perform puja and aradhana at this consecrated samadhi every year on the same day that Bhagwan left his body — 19th of February.

This Ashram is located at the foothills of the famous Gorakhgadh and Macchindragadh hills in the Murbad district near Kalyan, Mumbai. These two Sahyadri peaks are a mountaineer’s delight and are often-visited sites for trekking enthusiasts. Many of the camps conducted at this Ashram include a brief trek up the Gorakh mountains and long walks around the scenic spots about the Ashram.

Dehari Ashram also has the advantage of great tree cover and a stream flowing through the Ashram area.
