Adarsh (ideal) and Tantamukta (dispute free village) Gram Nirman Abhiyaan
Swamiji visits several villages in Maharashtra for pravachans and Adarsha Gram Abhiyaan. There are some villages where all villagers are devotees of Siddhagiri math. Swamiji decided to make these villages Adarsh Gram i.e. Ideal villages and tanta-mukta gram i.e. dispute-free villages. Shelakewadi is one such Adarsha Gram developed under guidance of Swamiji. Some spotlights on the activities carried out under this campaign.
