Gyan Sarovar - Mount Abu
Gyaan Sarovar complex is a part of Brahma Kumaris Headquarters, situated in the beautiful hills of Mount Abu. Here is accommodation for the BKs who are surrendered in the Yagya living in madhuban. Gyan Sarovar means a pound of knowledge.
The Academy, known in Hindi as Gyan Sarovar Vidyapeeth, offers residential programs and courses on development and practical implementation of human, moral and spiritual values and principles for not only solving life-related problems with spiritual knowledge, but also living a life with a higher purpose- becoming a Devta (deity) by Gyan and Yog as taught by the incorporeal supreme soul (Shiv Baba).
Brahma Kumaris God Fatherly Spiritual University has its headquarters in mount abu and Gyan sarovar was build in 1991 for the Academy for a Better World, an institution of higher learning established along with its sister institution, the World Renewal Spiritual Trust, and Rajyoga Education and Research Foundation. The aim was to provide a spiritual facility for the institution’s outreach to all sections of society, to organise retreats and functions. Within a few years, 28 acres of land near the institution’s headquarters in Mount Abu was transformed into a modern village complex in a quiet, rural setting.
The campus includes Universal Harmony Hall, an auditorium that can seat 1,600 people and has facilities for simultaneous translation in 16 languages; the International Spiritual Art Gallery housing sculptures, murals, audio-visual and laser displays and other works of art from around the world; the International Center for Higher Learning comprising 13 seminar and training rooms; accommodation for up to 1,500 people; kitchen and dining facilities that can cater to 1,200 people at a time; three man-made lakes that irrigate the 15,000 trees planted to provide fruits and vegetables and a rural retreat atmosphere; and a solar water heater for cooking. The telephone exchange, computers and emergency lighting systems are powered by solar and wind energy, and a unique waste treatment plant is capable of treating 200,000 liters of washing, kitchen and bathroom waste-water daily, out of which nearly 80% is sent for re-use.
In 1996, the Academy was presented to Habitat II, the second UN Conference on Human Settlements held in Istanbul, Turkey. It was recognised as part of the Best Practice Initiative for Human Settlements.
