About us

Ordinary human beings continuously get distracted by the acute and complex worldly circumstances of our materialistic society and gradually begin to move towards accumulating mental worries, pain and anxiety. Though this is a very common occurrence, its consequences have been to create an adverse impact on individuals, families and society along with creating a threat for future generations. The impact is clearly illustrated all around us. In this unwanted situation of confusion and uncertainty one only remembers the omniscient God Almighty as the source of truth and divine direction. Only he can solve our problems and redeem us from our sins. However, to experience the blessings of the Almighty and remove the negativity in us a mentor is needed. A mentor (Sadhguru) shall lead us towards the right path, protect us from sin, solve our problems and help us to develop affinity towards God Almighty in our minds. Keeping these pure and righteous objectives in mind, revered Shri Bal Govind Shandilyaji Maharaj founded Shree Maa Aadi Shakti Peeth in Bhopal. As a sequel to this a well-known Ashram like Karunadham was constructed, mentored by his son, revered Shri Sudesh Shandilyaji Maharaj. (Peethadhishwar of Karunadham)

Param Pujya Bade Guru Dev Balgovind Shandilya ji Maharaj​

Shree Balgovind Shandilyaji Maharaj, a married saint was born in a Brahman family at Nagpur on 16th December 1926. From his early childhood he was totally engrossed in spiritualism. From his early life he was a true devotee of Maa Bhagvati Jagadjannani Jagdamba and performed very tough penances. He attained immense supernatural powers (siddhis).We remember him fondly as Bade Gurujee. Totally dedicated to the worship of Maa Bhagwati, Bade Gurujee was a very simple, innocent and a true saint detached from worldly pleasures. His simplicity, innocence and magnetic personality attracted followers who gleefully bowed in front of them. Through his healing touch Bade Gurujee healed thousands of people suffering from chronic illnesses, incurable diseases and dire problems with an effort towards helping mankind. He was a great supporter and propagator of spiritualism, social consciousness and social upliftment. He attained salvation (Samadhi) and departed to heaven on 18th August 1985.
