Bhagavatham Village:

Bhagavatham Village Trust is a registered charitable institution having its own office functioning in Cochin city near Ernakulam South Railway Station. The trust is headed by Swami Udith Chaithanya.

Bhagavatham Village is situated at Munipara, Chalakudy, near Kalady, the birth place of Jagathguru Adi Sankara. This place is in a serene atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the city on the banks of chalakudy river. According to ancient scriptures the name Chalakudy is derived from chala (shala) kudy (hut). It is said that there used to be yagnas conducted in this place in ancient times.

Bhagavatham Village is easily accessible by railway, road, and air. The Kochi International Airport is just a few kilometers away.

Concept  and  Vision :

Bhagavatham Village is envisaged by Swamiji for practising the "Pancha Yajna" for the benefit of society and setting up an example for the whole world. Swami Udit Chaithanyaji, the Acharya of Bhagavatham Village, after graduation, studied two years' post graduation in Vedanta from Chinmaya Mission, Powai, Mumbai.

After serving Chinmaya Mission for three years, Swamiji was inspired by Swami Sevanandaji (the secretary to Acharya Vinoba Bhave) who had given a different dimension in Srimad Bhagavatham and all our Scriptures. Ever since then, Swamiji is spreading Srimad Bhagavatham, Geeta, Narayaneeyam etc. Swamiji was enthralled by Srimad Bhagavatham and the teachings of Lord Krishna for the self transformation of individuals and society through Pancha Yajna. For Krishna, true worship is performing the Pancha Yajna, not limiting to the rituals.

The first Yajna "Bhoo Seva" is concerned with our body (health). Only a healthy Earth and nature can provide healthy life. For that, we need to protect nature planting medicinal plants by which we can prevent and destroy many diseases from our body. A medicinal forest is designed in the Bhagavatham Village along with a "Nakshatra Vanam" where organic farming will be a part of it. 

There are many people who suffer because of many kinds of diseases which is a result of regular and additive usage of medicines. This not only affects their health, but also reduces their self confidence and increases their fear and depression. Mother Cow is such a holy creation of nature that can produce powerful products which can eradicate or root out the diseases and help us to live a "medicine free" life. The "Gomoothra" (the filtered and medicated cow urine) can cure various diseases. Pancha Gavyam and cow milk are exemplary in protecting our health. Promoting "Goshala" where the disappearing local varieties of cows will be protected is a mission of Bhagavatham Village. This is the second Yajna called "Goseva".

Indian culture is based on physical health as well as mental health. Without mental health, physical health can turn useless and destructive. Spirituality helps us to channelize and develop mental health. Studying of Scriptures, chanting Mantras and doing Upasana and practice of Yoga, Pranayam and Meditation help an individual to become mentally strong and also creates a positive environment. Swamiji has designed a training program for the study and practice of Scriptures and Sadhana. This is called "Jnana Yajna".

Every individual wants love, care and respect. But, old people are usually neglected or ignored. Generally, our elders demand love and respect. However, more the demand, less the attention! The secret of love lies in the service or usefulness of an individual. Elders should useful to the society to develop a positive mind. "Mathru Pithru Seva" in Bhagavatham Village provides an environment where elders are trained to be useful to themselves and others. This will help them to deserve (instead of demand) love and care.

No one is useless, but used less. There are lot of people who get lesser opportunities to develop and express their skills and abilities. Bhagavatham Village will provide an environment where "lesser privileged" people can help themselves to develop the skill so that they can live with self reliance and self esteem. This "Deena Seva" will focus on physically, mentally and financially challenged people.

All these Bhooseva, Goseva, Jnana seva, Mathru Pithru seva and Deena seva are the five pillars and principles of Bhagavatham Village. This is our humble service to the mankind.

Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirthaji’s Main Ashram : "Narayanashrama Tapovanam"

The word 'Ashram' (in Sanskrit) stands for an abode of learning or education. It is a pity that even after 50 years of independence; many of us are prone to associate constricted religiosity with the word and dispose of the institutions under such name as engaged in some sectarian practices. Of course, it is only a corollary of the widespread ignorance with which we often stamp our great Bharatiya (Indian) culture as 'Hindu Religion'.

More than the theoretical knowledge of different subjects, education in our country always meant man-making -- purification, fortification and transformation of personality in the holy association of the Teacher, so that the student would become fit to course victoriously through the vicissitudes of life and attain fulfillment.

And Ashrams were the institutions imparting such education. The most important factor underlying the legendary greatness of ancient Bharat was these honored seats of learning - the Ashrams - where the saintly Teacher…


Rediscover Bharatham!!! Our Father of Nation Mahatma's dream was "Ramarajya in BAharatham". The word secularism may oppose the term used 'Ramarajyam', the term means a land of TRUTH AND VALUES. The Upanishadic culture is the culture of our country. The training given to the citizens of Bharatham to live this Sanatana Dharma is called Hinduism. Bharatham is a Spiritual country. BHA means Knowledge and ratham is one who lives, hence Bharatham means a country where people are living in knowledge. Modernisation, Globalisation , our political parties, our Rulers, our system, our education, parents, new generation, media, our dress code, blind imitation of western countries and many more causes of this. Science and technology is boon for good people, where demonic citizens take advantage and exploit these benefits into criminal activities, we had experience since Atom was mis-used, now the demonic activities is continuing.
Rulers keep open their eyes and ears open and …
