Name – Pratishthan

The name “Pratishthan” was given from the town called Paithan which was originally known as Pratishthan and was the capital of the Shalivahan kings the ancestors of Shri Mataji.

When the place was selected and bought by our Beloved Mother, it was discovered that this was the place visited by Shri Sitaji, when she used to stay at Valmiki ashram (now known as Valmiki Nagar near Pune). During the summer season since this area was always green and cooler, Sitaji used to spend some time here.
