The Chicago chapter of the Bharat Sevashram Sangha was founded by Swami Purnatmanandaji. First located on California Avenue just off Devon Avenue in Chicago. It soon outgrew the small location and was moved to a quiet sanctuary in Rohrssen Rd in Elgin. Now in response to community needs for a center for learning, sadhu-sangha, and prayer, the Ashram has been moved to a large building (formerly a church) in a quiet neighborhood in the historic town of Aurora in the summer of 2007.
The Ashram is open to visitors daily from 7:00am - 9:00pm. Devotees are invited to come any time. Please call ahead to make sure Swamiji will be available.
Ashram has also acquired a home to serve as a guest house, to accommodate visitors wishing to stay overnight. If you wish to come and take advantage of this convenience, we ask that you please call ahead and speak to the resident Swamiji to make sure you can be accommodated properly.
