Special Facilities for a Group
  • Avail special facilities for a Group who has booked accommodation in the Ashram:
  • It has been our experience that many such groups are unable to make full use of the resources of the Ashram because they do not know about all the possibilities.
  • All activities of the Ashram are inspired and guided by the life-embracing spiritual philosophy of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The philosophy can help you live a life that is full of joy and peace, a life that gives you a sense of fulfillment.
  • We have scholars living in the Ashram who will be happy to present this philosophy to you, in a fashion that is tailor-made for your group, in a short period of an hour or two at a time convenient to you.
  • Therefore, when you arrive at the Ashram, do ask the Reception to fix time for your group with someone who can share with you ideas that join worldly life and spirituality without bringing in any rituals or ceremonies, without going into any rigid set of dos and don'ts.
  • We do wish that when you go back, you should carry with you not only sweet memories, but also knowledge and wisdom that would help you avoid mental stress, which is a major problem of life in today's world.
