  • Description

    Description

    This is an ashram dedicated to yoga, meditation, and humanity. Our ashram is spread across a total of 20 acres of land, and our goal is to create a self-sufficient and independent community. We aim to grow everything we need for our daily requirements, from fruits to grains and milk, following the principles of permaculture and working in harmony with nature.

    Currently, our ashram is in its initial stage, with the completion of building construction and some parts of tree plantation. Our next plan is to finish the remaining plantation, establish a waste management system, and start our first batch of meditation and yoga sessions by July 2023.

    In addition to our focus on yoga and meditation, we have also taken the initiative to educate the children of our village. There are numerous opportunities here, from connecting with nature, finding a peaceful place for meditation and yoga, experiencing the village of Odisha, and engaging with the local community. You can even have picnics with them on the banks of the river and contribute to the education of village children.

    If you are someone who loves nature and seeks a peaceful place to practice meditation and yoga, while immersing yourself in the rich culture of the Odisha village, you are welcome to visit our ashram.
