"This video introduces Simandhar City, a community of Mahatmas (those who have attained Self-realization), which was envisioned by Pujya Dadashri, built and maintained under the guidance of Pujya Niruma and Pujya Deepakbhai."
It's a dream township spread over 35 acres, providing housing / services to an aggregate of 600 mahatma families in studio apartments, flats, twin-bungalows, bungalows and other types of accommodation. It’s a huge spiritual city engaged in spreading peace, permanent happiness and the knowledge of the Self (Self Realization) to the entire world.
Param Pujya Dadashri had a wish (Extract from Param Pujya Dadashri's wish) -
"A city of Mahatmas (all who have achieved Self Realization) living together would facilitate them in achieving the Absolute state with ease. Such a spiritual environment would aid in increasing devotion for Lord Shree Simandhar Swami and for practicing the five aagnas (instructions given after Self Realization) resulting in their ultimate salvation."
Pujya Niruma fulfilled this wish and the city was inaugurated on 29th Dec 2002.
Simandhar City also houses "Vatsalya", the residence of Pujya Niruma & Pujya Deepakbhai and Aptasankul - the residence of celibate brothers and sisters who have dedicated their lives to the cause of spreading Akram Vignan to the entire world.
The entire city is well planned and modern. It has brightly lit tar/concrete roads and large well laid out gardens, plants, trees and landscapes.
The facilities in the city are extensive.Within the city there is a lake, a walking track, club house, a bank with a 24 hours ATM facility, a utility store, a health centre, a piped gas facility and a high speed internet connection and intercom facility.
Above all, the city symbolises the spirit of one big family who have come to live together from all the different parts of the world to achieve spiritual progress.
In short, it's a metaphor for… A clean city, green city and a pure city!!!
An extension to Simandhar City (Simandhar City Sub-Division II), a much bigger township with identical infrastructure for mahatmas is progressing towards completion.
It is situated approx. 20 kms from Ahmedabad City (Gujarat, India) and approx. 18 kms from Ahmedabad Airport.
