Introduction to Darshan

The Darshan is dedicated to the noted Saint and scholar, Sadhu Vaswani. It offers an insight into the life and therefore the teachings of Sadhu Vaswani. It is built in Pune, on a space of 10000 sq. feet; on the first floor of the Sadhu Vaswani Mission Building.

A journey into Sadhu Vaswani's life and activities, it creates an entertaining, educative and moving experience for the soul, through a series of immersive spatial experiences rich in audio, video and multimedia, culminating in the darshan of the humble kutiya, where he spent his last years. Darshan is also essentially a repository of his teachings – in the form of interactive and participatory exhibits engaging the visitors, young and old alike.

It has been made using a vast palette of technologies; like real life mannequins, graphic panels, holographic screens, Peppers ghost, interactive, audio-visual material, films, et al.

The narrative and the dialogues, in the sound and light format, make it a very emotive experience; as opposed to the written format. It is facilitated by ushers who guide visitors through the 8 zones; each zone has various experiences from the life and teachings of the Great Master, in the narrative visitor will have choice of 2 different languages, viz Hindi and English.

The Person:

Thousands of students receive their education from these institutions, starting from the pre-primary level and going right up to post-graduate classes.
