Tapovan ashram is a beautiful, tranquil, green, 15-acre campus located in an isolated, scenic valley between two mountain ranges. it is a place that rests your soul from the incessant, frenetic thinking and activity that seems to be plaguing mankind today. And in the absence of the numerous attention-demanding diversions, there is a chance of you coming in touch with something that is beyond the reach of normal thought, something that might change your perspective of life.
The ashram was established with the idea of promoting a life of conscious living - serene contemplation combined with an emphasis on a healthy life dedicated to the service of all living beings. Built within this greenery are the staying facilities, common kitchen, dining room, library, meditation hall, swimming pools, nature cure facilities, cow shed etc.
We have close contacts with many local experts in the fields of yoga and meditation. Their services can be arranged on campus as required. The charges are INR 1000 per hour.
There are two types of accommodation available:
Dormitory beds with shared bathrooms (separate for gents and ladies) - INR 400 per person per night
Private room (2 beds) with attached bathroom - INR 1000 per night. Extra bed INR 500 per night.
Since the ashram is intended to provide a conducive setting for peaceful contemplation and not be an alternative for a hotel or tourist resort, clean but basic accomodation has been made available to visitors. The regular inhabitants of the ashram try and live in as eco-friendly a way as possible. There are no hi-tech electronic devices like TV, broadband internet, AC etc. The rooms have simple beds, light and fan, some storage space and toilet. One or two electric sockets with 220 V,50 Hz electric supply are provided in each space. Electric supply though may be erratic.
Other activities include:
