Tantra is the ancient and often misunderstood science of awakening Kundalini-Shakti energy lying dormant at the base of the spine. Unfortunately, many people have misconceptions or limited concepts of what Tantra actually means. Tantra philosophy says that energy is required to do anything, and energy comes in many different forms. Through the regular practice of Tantra Yoga we learn how to generate and conserve energy using practical techniques as well as lifestyle choices. Our ashram’s philosophy is to channel this energy to transform ourselves to higher level of consciousness and to do good work for the benefit of society.
For this reason, Karma Yoga is an integral part of our ashram. Karma in Sanskrit means action, but there is a great difference between karma and Karma Yoga. Karma is simply the action of doing, whereas Karma Yoga is the act of selflessly doing for others. Many of our actions are driven by our desires and we expect something as a result, but when we are able to act without any expecting any fruits from our labor, this is Karma Yoga and one of the best paths for purifying our heart and mind. When done from the heart, Karma Yoga enhances the practical aspects of yoga, brings greater peace of mind and expands an individual’s consciousness. Please note that we consider ourselves as an ashram family who aims to live together in harmony. Therefore, we encourage all our family members to be respectful of each others' boundaries and space. Once you arrive at the ashram you will be part of this family too. Please take care of our communal home by keeping it nice and clean. You are also welcome to enhance the ashram by sharing your special talents and gifts.
