Generally, shoulders and legs should be covered for women and nothing too tight. Men, please wear a shirt. 

SILENT TIMES
We observe silence (Mauna) from 9PM until after breakfast. This ensures the maximum peace for spiritual practices and rest in the ashram community.
We welcome you for an inspiring stay in this spiritual community. 

AGNI HOTRA
The ashram performs Agni Hotra (fire puja) daily at 8:00am in the Vedic tradition. We have handbooks with Vedic mantras in Romanized Sanskrit and the English translation. Residents and guests are welcome to experience and learn this ancient Indian ritual.

KIRTAN
Kirtan is the chanting of names, or archetypes. It is a melodious, uplifting practice that encourages the surrender of the ego, and letting go of constructs which hold us back from free-flowing energy and opening the heart. There is no need to be a good singer, or to know a lot of information about the ‘names’. Whether the kirtan be related to Krishna and unconditional love, or Shiva, and welfare or transformation, by chanting kirtan you will experience on your own what this practice has to reveal to you.
Kirtan is usually twice a week: Tuesday and Friday evenings 7 – 8 PM or 8:30 PM.


KARMA YOGA
The practice of selfless service, without attachment to the fruits of the action, is one of the pathways to enlightenment. If guests wish, they may be of service around the ashram helping at any time in the kitchen, garden, library, cleaning etc. Please advise the office of your wishes.
Group karma yoga is scheduled at 9 am on Sundays.
