  • Description

    Description

    We are here in Vrindavan (Mathura), India, called the 5 thousand temples city, working hard in a spiritual community. There is a lot to learn and to do, helping us to improve our service to this special land and to the local people.

    Our ashram (temple) was started by Swami Paramadvaiti, who has founded a Network of 67 Eco-Community Ashrams, especially in South America.

    Location:
    We are located at 150 km from Delhi city and 10 Km from Mathura city (state of Uttar pradesh), into a unique mystic environment that allows you to be connected with nature and your inner self. Vrindavan is where the most traditional HOLI Festival of India is celebrated in the month of February.

    Our Volunteer Program includes free accommodation at our Guest House and free access to our facilities and daily activities ( Yoga Inbound classes, kirtan and bhajan experience, spiritual cerimonies, philosophy classes, conscious movie screening, special festivals, temples visits, Oida Therapy sessions, all according to availability at the time of volunteer's arrival)

    Contribution: We charge $ 10 USD/day as the minimum cost to cover 3 full delicious vegetarian meals per day. Our spiritual refuges in India are maintained by donations and everybody living in the Ashram are working as volunteers as well. We have different projects we work on besides the daily maintenance of the Ashram, like our Hanuman School, Our food distribution program, the gardens we have built on Holi temples, Yamuna River cleaning and other environmental initiatives.


    Thank you so much for your interest in our place, hope to see you soon!

    Help

    We are working intensively to improve our local community; by helping in the recovery of green areas of some antiques temples, gardening, cleaning the sacred Yamuna river , teaching in local schools, Goshala helping (washing sacred cows), help with web pages, artistic presentations, activism and also learn about meditation, chanting mantras, and vedic philosophy. It is important to say that we are not a Hatha or Astanga yoga ashram, despite we offer yoga classes most of the time.
