We wanted to get a taste of Indian spirituality and practice meditation and yoga, so what a better place for that than an Ashram, a traditional spiritual hermitage or monastery in Indian Religions. Anand Garg, who we interviewed before recommended us Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram in Kerala, so we decided to give it a try and spent six days there during our stay in Southern India.
Six days we followed strict schedule with a wake up bell every morning at 5.20 am, 4 hours of yoga a day, 4 hours of chanting and meditating a day and eating only 2 meals a day. The experience was, how to put it, interesting, but totally worth it.
Serve, Love, Give, Purify, Meditate, Realize
Check out the video about our six days stay in Ashram and what we learned about spirituality and and what we got overdose of.
“An ounce of practice is worth tons of theory. Life is short and time is fleeting. Arise, awake, realize the self.” Swami Sivananda.
