Ánanda Náráyańa ‘The Divine Land’
A Master Unit in Córdoba, Argentina
By Kuntur Deva
Every space in this universe is blessed with the hidden presence of the unbroken flow of consciousness, but there are special places where such presence is more clearly manifested and such is the experience of many who have visited Ánanda Náráyańa (Divine Land). Ánanda means infinite happiness or bliss, and Náráyańa is the shelter of the Supreme Consciousness, that is the abode of a happy blending between the devotional flow and its practical application in life. This is a project dedicated to implement and transmit the teachings and ideology of Shrii P. R. Sarkar.
In 2014 a group of people wishing to fully dedicate themselves to the collective welfare, imagined building Ánanda Náráyańa as a model to help society find its socio-spiritual roots. The goal was to create an ideal place for the practice of spirituality in close harmony with the indescribable beauty offered by the virgin atmosphere.
Ánanda Náráyańa’s land is set within the Calamuchita valley, in Córdoba province, and extends over near 20 hectares of previously inhabited land, located at the heart of Argentinian’s central mountain range. Calamuchita is enriched by the presence of numerous rivers that feed many Argentinian lakes and confines to the North with the ‘National Park Condor’s Fall’. The entire surrounding is a magnificent natural phenomenon with a diverse and rich vegetation and an incredibly rich fauna thriving in the wide opened landscapes. This land is a true world heritage, and its original inhabitants, the Comechingones, since time immemorial were the only witnesses and caretakers of its hidden beauty.
Highlights, Facilities & Specialties
Living in one of the most untouched and natural places in the world, we harmonize with the existing environmental conditions in everything we aim to, do and develop. We utilize the existing energy resources such as the countless days of solar energy for generating electricity, the use of pure potable river water for all needs and adapt all of our construction methods to the given materials mostly present on the spot or nearby such as clay, sand, stones, soil, wood, etc through ‘permaculture system of construction’. All housing structure has been built by us, with much love, sacrifice and dedication, and are suitable for deep relaxation, nature connection and meditation. Several walking trails connect beautiful gardens, meditation spots, quiet spaces with amazing high mountains views, and the all year round flowing river that has countless spots for swimming, relaxation and water therapy.

Ánanda Náráyańa is a place for you to deeply relax, connect with your inner self and experience the deepest peace offered by a healthy lifestyle giving greater meaning to your own existence within the context of society.
Ánanda Náráyańa is the natural venue for Yoga oriented programs that lead to self-knowledge and the awakening of the inner urge to dedicate ourselves to serve others through:
