Volunteer Program

Sanskrit Glossary »

Ananda Ashram offers valuable opportunities for volunteers to deepen their spiritual practice through daily meditation, study and service in a beautiful, inspirational Ashram environment. Benefits include participation in morning and evening meditation programs with Yoga-Vedanta studies, Sanskrit and Yoga classes as well as cultural events. Contribution for overnight stay is reduced to about half of our regular guest rates. Generally, the Ashram can use help in kitchen, housekeeping and maintenance. Availability of the program is based on Ashram need.
