There are two affiliated Centres for Research, Education, Sadhana and Training (CREST) – one in Bangalore, India, and a second in Berlin, Germany. These centres provide a place for opening the mind to the possibilities of human evolution, through spiritual practice, audacious thinking and research.

Know More


The CREST campus, set in sylvan surroundings and encircled by a flowing brook, is located in Bangalore, a city in the state of Karnataka, in the southern part of India. Bangalore is well connected by train and air to all the major cities in India.



The ashram is located in “Berlin-Mitte”, in a huge building called “DAZ” which was formerly a factory but completely renovated and restructured after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. It is placed at a point where east and west meet, not far from the site of the former Berlin Wall.

Retreat Centres


Retreat centres are places to dive deep to introspect and meditate, so as to face life refreshed with a renewed sense of purpose, and to restore balance in one's life. There are participating retreat centres in various part of India, as well as in Europe and North America.

Medical Centres


The Free Medical Centres (FMCs) and medical camps of SMSF provide a valuable service, often where other medical services are not available, e.g. remote rural villages. Services are delivered in various regions of India, e.g. Satkhol in Uttarakhand and Chennai in Tamil Nadu.

Medical personnel offer selfless service, in the tradition of karma yoga. Physicians, dentists, medical students, residents, nurses, lab technicians and other medical staff have formed the Sahaj Marg Physicians Group (SMPG) to offer their services in the FMCs.
