Geeta Ashram History
Holiness Swami Hariharji Maharaj, first visited Malaysia
in October 1966. At the Satsang held in the residence
of Mrs & Mrs.Ambo, Swamiji expressed his wish to
form a Geeta Ashram in Kuala Lumpur. Before long the
Geeta Ashram, Kuala Lumpur was formed with an initial
membership of about twenty.
satsangs and meetings were held in the houses of various
devotees over the next few years. An apeal to the authorities
resulted in the Selangor Government making a generous
donation of a piece of land in Petaling Jaya for the
purpose of erecting a building for the ashram.
28th february 1972, His Holiness Swami Hariharji Maharaj
laid the foundation stone for the building. On that
occasion Swamiji said that the Geeta Ashram Kuala Lumpur,
had the distinction of being the first overseas branch
outside India, and expressed the hope that it would
serve as a beacon light for other branches to be established
all over the world.
the years the membership of the Ashram has steadily increased
and at present exceeds three hundred. Activities of the
ashram have also incresed considerably, involving our
own members as well as many visitors and well wishers.
the increse in the membership, and the increased attendance
of both members and guests, expecially on special occasions
of the ashram during the year, the need to provide more
space to accomodate the congregation has become increasingly
urgent. The management committee has embarked on a plan
to extend the present building. See more here.
