Expanded over 100 acres of area, Govardhan Ecovillage is a project of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.The project is owned and managed by ISKCON Wada.
Situated in the beautiful mountain ranges of Sahyadri, Govardhan Eco Village is on a mission to spread the message of Krishna and bring his wisdom to the people. The eco- village is a testament to the powers of Ayurveda, Yoga and Meditation to bring about transformative change. We are led by the principles of humility and sustainability and our mission is to serve and propagate the benefits of India’s age old traditions to the whole world.3
It is the result of an ardent desire of Radhanatha Swami to fulfill the dream of his beloved guru, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada – “To erect for the members and society at large, a holy place of transcendental pastimes, dedicated to the personality of Krishna.”
“Eco-friendly,” Radhanatha Swami explained, meant: Living in harmony with nature and according to the way Krishna wants us to live on a material level and spiritual level.
Living with respect for Mother Earth, Bhumi-devi, who is the consort of Lord Varahadeva, Lakshmi herself and honoring her and living in ways that replenish her resources rather than exploit her resources, and then utilize whatever resources she gives us, by her grace, for the service of Lord Vishnu.
Govardhan Ecovillage is not an overnight establishment, but shape formed over a century of toil, hardship and the constant passion of many. Govardhan Ecovillage is a place that houses several eco-friendly initiatives. Govardhan Ecovillage is implementing several rural development initiatives in many villages nearby with the help of Sri Chaitanya Seva Trust.
