Later Tirtha Ashrama developed into a Vanaprastha Nilaya, an abode of peace and tranquility for the elderly in 1995. It aims to serve the elderly providing them with a peaceful environment for their spiritual progress and a pure atmosphere for good health. It was set up to serve the people that have helped build the world into what it is today.
