Bhagwan Nityananda, a great God Realizing Soul lived in Ganeshpuri village of Maharashtra, just two hours north of Mumbai from 1937 until the time he left his body in 1961. Even after his passing, he continues to inspire and guide many devotees in India and abroad.
Mission Statement :
Shri Nityanand Education Trust was founded in 2005 to provide basic educational, health, and agricultural support to impoverished communities in the Tansa River Valley. SNET strives to provide inspiration and hope to these communities through programs that encourage individuals and groups to become self-sustaining.
Because the needs of these people are so great, relatively small efforts can bring about significant changes. Your support helps SNET in its mission to help those who face a life of hardship and economic oppression.
