Gyan Ashram, Andheri

Province > Maharashtra > Mumbai

Gyan Ashram  was founded in 1955 by Fr George Proksch  as a centre for music and dance. He gathered troupe of singers and dancers to present Jesus’s message of love and service through Indian Dance forms. The finest moment of his dreams of presenting the message of Jesus in the Indian style arrived when he staged "Anuttam Prem", a ballet at the International Eucharistic Congress in Mumbai  1964, in the presence    of His Holiness Pope Paul VI and over 50,000 spectators, Christians and others, with the impressive cast of 300 dancers, a choir of 1000 singers and an orchestra of 100 musicians. Ever since, this centre tries its best to keep alive the original ideology and the spirit of the Fr. Proksch (who later took the name Guru Gyan Prakash) through dialogue, music and dance.
