The Kripalu Samadhi Mandir is a Holy Site in the heart of Gujarat where the famous saint, Swami Kripalvandandji spent over twelve years in Sadhana. Before his Mahasamadhi, he requested that his closest disciples bury his remains in a field located in the town of Malav due to the reverence and serenity he experienced there. His wish was granted by his disciple, Kirit Patel, and a large and magnificent Shaiviate Temple has been constructed over his burial location in tribute to Swami Kripalu and his Guru, Lord Lakulish, the 28th incarnation of Lord Shiva.


The grounds are beautiful; complete with peacocks, monkeys, orchards, a variety flowers, and immaculately kept fields. There is a large meditation hall, a dining room, and a residential building for all of those who wish to come and study the authentic teachings of ancient yoga in the serenity, beauty, and calmness of the Ashram. It is the ideal place for the in-depth study of authentic and ancient teachings of Yoga.


Before Swami Kripalu’s Mahasamadhi, he asked one of his foremost disciples, Gurudev Shri Amritji, to one day bring the authentic teachings of Yoga and Yoga Nidra back to India when the time was right. In the Spring of 2017, Gurudev Shri Amritji fulfilled that request by bringing these teachings back to India for the first time; and, he was so inspired by the reception that we could not wait an entire calendar year to return and provide this spiritually charged experience to others! This facility will continue to provide the teachings of this lineage on a consistent basis to uphold the legacy of Lord Lakulish and Swami Kripalu.
