About Us


Bhagwan Nityananda, a great God Realizing Soul lived in Ganeshpuri village of Maharashtra, just two hours north of Mumbai from 1937 until the time he left his body in 1961. Even after his passing, he continues to inspire and guide many devotees in India and abroad. Before his death, he sent one of his most beloved devotees, Baba Muktananda, to travel around the world giving spiritual knowledge to thousands of people living in many foreign countries.
Now, years later, some of those recipients of India's spiritual knowledge return to Ganeshpuri to join with Indian devotees to give something of themselves to those living in the Tansa River Valley, the forgotten people who live far from the infrastructure of modern India. As an act of gratitude for what Nityananda has given them, these devotees created Shree Nityananda Education Trust as a Bombay Trust, an NGO according to the State of Maharashtra.
During Nityananda's life, he established centers for feeding and housing the poor and needy, and built schools, hospitals, wells, and roads. Shree Nityananda Education Trust (SNET) takes its inspiration from the Blessed Bhagwan Nityananda and continues that work in his name.

Mission Statement :

Shree Nityananda Education Trust was founded in 2005 to provide basic educational, health, and agricultural support to impoverished communities in the Tansa River Valley. 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 helps SNET in its mission to help those who face a life of hardship and economic oppression.
