« You don’t have to sit and meditate for hours on end to receive the Light. (…) The Light comes spontaneously like the blooming of a flower. »


~ Mother Meera

Mother Meera’s residence in Germany

Since 1981, Mother Meera chose to live in a picture-postcard country village. She gives darshan in the village of Balduinstein, State of Rhineland-Palatinate (in German, Rheinland-Pfalz), an area famous for its romantic charm with its vineyards, castles, volcanic lakes, valleys and sites inscribed to the World Heritage List of the UNESCO. Mother’s house is located at the foot of Schaumburg Castle, 10 km south-west of Limburg. A volunteers’ community was formed to support Mother’s work all year-round.

Inside, a large hall is dedicated to darshans that Mother usually gives three times a week when she is not travelling. As soon as the pandemic situation allows it, darshans will start again with a prior reservation. To come to Balduinstein, the closest airports are Frankfort or Cologne/Bonn. From there, one can rent a car and go direct to Schloss Schaumburg or take the train up to Limburgh and get to Schloss Schaumburg by bus or taxi. Several hotels are close by so that you can enjoy a nice stay.

When she is not in Germany, Mother Meera tours the world giving her blessing. She also travels several times a year to see her community in India where she established several schools.

Whether in Canada or in Germany, darshans with Mother Meera will not start again before 2023. Meanwhile, you can follow online daily meditations and read her answers to better get through the present period.

Mother Meera’s center, at the foot of Schloss Schaumburg

When in Germany, mother gives her darshans in a heritage building that was, in times past, an annex to Schloss Schaumburg. For many years now, this U-shaped building has been renovated and now has a large hall able to accommodate over 200 people. They come from all over the world to receive Light from Mother. Many volunteers live on-site permanently. Outside there is a garden suitable for walking, relaxation and meditation.
