The 21st April 2000 is a significant day…the day in which Dr. Rajeshji Parmar received notification that the official opening of the Siddhashram Shakti Center had been confirmed. This is also the birth date of Poojya Gurudev. Dr. Rajeshji Parmar performed the initial pooja and blessed the Ashram by lighting lanterns, incense and offering the Gurudev/Gods flowers and mahaprasad. Poojya Gurudev was also represented in picture form.

This was a truly unique day that will be cherished forever! The International Siddhashram Shakti Centre is the first to be established in the UK from the guidance of Paramhans Swami Nikleshwaranand, also known as Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimali or Poojya Gurudev. His name signifies the highest peak of Sadhana and heavenly enlightenment. He advised that people can achieve a perfect balance between family life and spiritual existence by performing Sadhanas and obtaining Dikshas through science of Mantra and other spiritually enlightening activities. The teaching and its intricacies reveals how one can reach the highest peak of success in the shortest time possible. Dr. Rajeshji Parmar is a selected devotee who has been guided by Gurudev and encouraged to pass on his knowledge to others.

After all the help and support from Sat-Guru Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimali, Dr. Rajeshji Parmar was able to establish a divine place of worship and education. The only one of its kind in the UK, in the form of The International Siddhashram Shakti Centre (UK). Gurudev quoted: ‘time is very bad for people. We have to do something to help them. We have to give them awakening in their lives.’ From these words Poojya Rajeshi Parmar began his journey to establish the Ashram for people to gain the knowledge Gurudev had passed on.

The International Siddhashram Shakti Center (UK) was officially opened in August 2000. The center values the contribution and immense support given to Dr. Rajeshji Parmar from his late wife Manisha Parmar and devotees across the community.
