Fire Mountain Retreat and Shree Nityananda Education Trust

 Fire Mountain in Morning

Mount Mondagni or Mount of the Eternal Flame, towering near Fire Mountain Retreat anchors a long heritage of accomplished spiritual masters of the Siddha Lineage who have practiced sadhana on and near its slopes.

Our Story

Inspired by Bhagwan Nityananda, the Board governing the Shree Nityananda Education Trust (SNET) dreamt of building a secure retreat center that would welcome people from all over the world to bathe in the spiritual energy of this sacred area. This dream has been realized in the Fire Mountain Retreat Center and now the newly launched Fire Mountain Ayurveda program.

Shree Nityananda Education Trust was founded in 2005 to provide basic educational, medical, and agricultural support to impoverished communities in the Tansa River Valley, Maharashtra, India.  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, in the form of a tax-free donation, helps SNET in its efforts to help those who face a life of hardship and economic oppression.
