Manasa Foundaton is established in a newly budding township called Taponagara, by the side of a tiny village called Chikkagubbi which lies one kilometre off Hennur-Bagalur Road, which leads to new Bengaluru International Airport. Taponagara is about 20 KMs away from Bangalore city, India.

In 1935, Maharshi Amara meditated for 24 days and nights on a nearby hillock when he saw a huge light falling from the sky near Taponagara. Then, it was revealed to him that a special Spiritual Centre would be established by the Light Masters here.

Guruji Krishnananda founded Taponagara in 1993 with a lonely hut.

In 1994, a huge field of energy was built by the Light Masters which was about one and a half kilometres in radius. The field has now grown to a hemisphere of about four kilometres in diameter

Taponagara is the Head Quarters of Manasa Foundation. The Study Center is established in another village called Nadagowdagollahalli, one kilometer away. This area is known as Antar-Manasa.
