An ashram is a spiritual hermitage or monastery in Indian religions. Ashrams have been used for centuries as places of spiritual practice, learning, and community. Many ashrams offer accommodation to visitors, who are typically expected to participate in the ashram’s daily activities, such as meditation, yoga, and prayer.
Ashrams can be found all over India, in both rural and urban areas. Some ashrams are large and well-known, while others are small and community-based. There is a wide range of ashrams, each with its unique atmosphere and focus.
