I was here at the ashram for 2 days and enjoyed my stay thoroughly. It was a very spiritual and energetic experience. Each and every member of the ashram are very helpful, knowledgeable and caring. I would most definitely recommend and would visit here often myself. The schedule designed was followed precisely. It was a treat for body, mind and spirit. Had a quality time over here.
