Vasamma’s Ashram, known as Manidweepa Maha Samstanam, is located in India, in the state of Andhra Pradesh, near the town of Naidupet (Address: Vasudevananda Nagar, Srinivasapuram, Near Nelaballi Village, NAIDUPET, Nellore District).
The Ashram is known to be in the sacred grounds where Goddess Parvati is believed to be performing tapas (penance). The Ashram has a Sri Raja Rajeswari temple accompanied by Sri Kameshwara Swamy and Sri Vallabha Ganapathi.
It also has Hanuman mandir with a towering statue of Hanuman that is about 92 feet tall and other deities.
Ashram also has a Gosala (shelter home for cows), Annadaanam (food) shelter, and a Yaga-shaala for performing Yagnas for universal welfare.
If you happen to visit the Ashram and pay close attention to Amma’s routine, at the physical level we will notice that Amma is actively involved with three aspects, interaction/blessings to devotees, visits to Goshala, and visits to Yagashala?? Amma divine missions seem to include taking care of human beings (with spiritual upliftment, food, health, clothing, etc), Animals (protecting cows, providing shelter) and of course, Divine beings (by performing Yagnas in Yagna Shala).
Ashram now has over 110 cows, including about 20 buffaloes. Following are a few select pictures of Amma’s visit to Goshala ?? It looks like Vasamma and the cows are inseparable, pure, and divine love❤?? The cows must have done a lot of good karma to be so close to Amma.
The Ashram is engaged in various community-service activities like:
• Anna-Daanam: Food is prepared and served free to all daily in the food shelter
