In 2003, God and Gurus blessed Yogoda devotees in Pune with a beautiful Retreat center, the Yogoda Satsanga Sarovar Sadhanalaya, surrounded by hills and a backwater lake of Khadakwasla Dam. This picturesque retreat center was inaugurated by Swamis Sivananda, Smaranananda, and Vasudevananda on 25th December 2003.
"Come into the silence of solitude and the vibrations there will talk to you through the voice of God." -Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city life, nestled in the picturesque Sahyadris, by a tranquil lake lies the Khanapur Sarovar Sadhanalaya. This retreat is a perfect getaway for sadhaks to leave behind their worldly concerns. They can seek the Divine Beloved and intensify their sadhana in the solitude of the serene environs.
