Acquisition of a new site
We are very happy to announce that we have now acquired a piece of land for our new ashram and healing centre in South India. It even has a huge beautiful banyan tree, which in India is the symbol of immortality. It’s located about 2 km from the beach, near the town Pondicherry, in Tamil Nadu, the Southern tip of India. We’ll keep you posted once we start developing the land and the construction of the ashram quarters. We plan to develop the land with beautiful landscaping incorporating elements of a Zen garden, which will provide the perfect setting for meditation and yoga practice.
The idea is to create an oasis of peace in a green haven based on ecological architecture. Lots of emphasis will be given to the outdoors and the gardens, where we plan to have at least one pond with cascading waterfalls. We plan to also grow a small orchard with native fruit trees and a vegetable garden designed according to the principles of permaculture.
It will be a place where people from all over the world will be able to come and stay, lead a healthy life and practice meditation, asanas and pranayama. Besides our existing venue in Kullu Valley, some of our yoga retreats and yoga teacher training courses will also be conducted at this new venue. We intend to create an ashram atmosphere which will provide the peace and tranquility to explore the depth of one’s mind and heart in order to find a deeper connection with one’s inner Self and Nature.
