The ashram is in Himachal Pradesh, India. You can find detailed directions to the ashram here.
The ashram is not open throughout the year because currently we have limited resources. Om Swami is not in the ashram all the time and he only meets during the days specified under the events.
Please check the timings when the ashram is open. Select the time when you would like to visit the ashram and follow the registration process under the events.
We have a male and female dormitory with attached washrooms. Other than that, we have rooms which can house either a family of three or four, or 3 people of similar gender. These rooms are subject to availability and will be only given once you arrive at the Ashram.
There is one big dining hall for meals.
The ashram has a very simple and basic infrastructure so individual accommodation is not possible. You will be sharing rooms with other individuals.
The ashram provides bedding and three vegetarian meals and evening tea.
Here is a list of things we suggest you bring with you during your stay:

Medicine kit. The Ashram dispensary is well stocked but you are advised to carry your special and general medicines with you. The nearest pharmacy is 20km away.
You are welcome to bring your own sheet or pillow if you are more comfortable using them. We do not recommend washing clothes in the ashram as we have more than 150 people staying in the ashram on any given day during the meet time. Washing clothes will hinder other people from using the washrooms. Please bring enough clothing for the duration of your stay.
We do request that people are mindful while using the ashram facilities and help maintain the ashram clean at all times.The dormitories and the rooms have to be cleaned by the devotees occupying it.
We ask that you remain respectful of your fellow visitors and of your surroundings. We have a very pleasant environment here at the ashram.
