Join Guruji in Mauritius!

Mauritius is a sparkling island jewel in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. It is also the birthplace of Paramahamsa Vishwananda and the only sacred site outside of India with one of the Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva (Ganga Talao).

This will be a unique trip that lasts forever in the heart of the people who attend.

Shivaratri Pilgrimage

Dive deep into the roots of Divine Love! Enjoy the direct experience of being on pilgrimage with Paramahamsa Vishwananda as you journey with Him around His childhood island home to see the most sacred Hindu sites and the places where His early childhood lilas took place.

Listen to stories from friends and family who knew Him growing up. Enjoy hands-on darshans, satsangs, daily temple services and Shivaratri festivities in the Sri Ranganath temple. There will even be a Holi colour-toss celebration! And, of course you'll be able to enjoy the lush tropical greenery and white sandy beaches.
