Established in 1998, the Sambodh Society has been working steadily towards the goal of creating a center and its U.S. headquarters. In 2000, The Sambodh Society acquired 32 acres of rolling woodlands on the outskirts of Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Swami Bodhananda gave the forest its name, “Sambodh Aranya,” meaning “The Forest of Enlightenment.” Swamiji proposed the name for the center to be developed there, “Sambodh Center for Human Excellence" (SCHE).

SCHE was inaugurated on 19 July 2007 and the celebrations included an Interfaith Program


During November 2004 a group of dedicated committee members began working with an architect to design the building for SCHE.

Two years later, again in November, The Sambodh Society, Inc. secured a mortgage for the project and construction began. The facility includes a Sanctuary for Teaching-Meditation Hall, Swamiji’s quarters, a Kitchen, Library, Office and a Multi-Purpose Room useful for Yoga, Aikido, Tai Chi, Children’s activities and other functions.


Weekly programs at SCHE include Meditation, Chanting, Vedanta classes, discussions etc. apart from the annual grand events like the Rudra and Chandi Homa.

SCHE serves as the headquarters of The Sambodh Society, Inc. and is maintained by devotees, donors and friends.
