Omkar Hills is the tallest glorious and devotional spots in Bangalore with the avowed objective of propagating. The Ashrama has a Goshala,  Vishwamitra Veda Vidyalaya and arrangements for training in Vedagamas.

Swamiji arranges for the lighting of “Karthika Jyothi” on the Sacred day of Pournima in the month of Karthik every year. Large numbers of devotees throng the Ashrama on this auspicious occasion.

Swamiji’s greatest ambition was to construct a huge Temple Complex known as Jyothirlinga Temple Complex – comprising of twelve Jyothirlinga Temples with the Deities in the same pattern as they exist in the various states of our country. Swamiji’s objective is to provide an easy opportunity to even a common man to have the satisfaction of visiting these Sacred Temples spread all country – a rich treasure of our religion.


Giant Clock Tower

A magnificent Tower Clock, bigger than the reputed Big Ben of London, with provision to bring out Shankanada and Omkaranada along with the striking of each hourly gong, has been installed on the Hill.

Swamiji is known for his innovative initiatives in all walks of life. True to that, he planned and got his plan executed by installation of a unique Tower Clock. This is the second clock in the world and is bigger than the Big Ben of London.

At the commencement of every hour, the clock chimes the sound of couch (Shankanada) followed by “Om” five times. The Shankanada is meant to awaken the consciousness of everyone to the great truth which is revealed by five Omkara to follow. Om which is a combination of three syllables A, U and M – represents the three states of life (the waking, the dreaming and the deep sleep state), creation, existence and dissolution, etc. It is the hub of the wheel which represents all the gamut’s of our life. Prasnopanishad describes Om as one imperishable and immutable sound and one who contemplates on the supreme spirit (Brahman) by this sound will abide in the very source of light and energy. After drawing the attention to the supreme spirit, the gong of each hour indicates the passing away of time. Swamiji correctly describes that the gong tells everyone that the time is passing away and each one should turn his attention to achieving his permanent goal without anymore delay. The following serves perhaps as the quintessence of the call given by this clock as well as by the respected Swamiji.



In Sanatana Dharma, cow is considered on par with the mother & goddess. Cow is worshipped every friday by performing pooja. Many festivals in the temple and functions in the houses are celebrated only after performing Go-pooja. It helps the human beings in so many ways, Cow's milk and its products give health to the young and the aged people and helps them to lead a healthy life. The sacred ash made by cow dung is given to devotees in the temples as Vibuthi and this Vibuthi prevents diseases like cold and severe headache. The urine and the cow dung are natural fertiliser for agricultural land.

Such a worshipable cows are mercilessly sent to slaughter houses, when they are aged or while they attain the non-productive age. In the slaughter houses, the sacred cows are killed in a barbaric and cruel manner for their flesh, skin and bones. It is a great sin and against the basic tenets of the Vedas and sacred scripts on Hinduism.

In order to prevent this sinful act of killing the cows or sending the cows to slaughter houses, Omkara Ashrama has started goshala, where young & aged cows get shelter and medical treatment.
