Hamsa Ashramam

Hamsa Ashramam

Ashram Timings:  from 10.00 am to 12.30 noon and from 2.30 pm to 5:00 pm. Generally, no prior appointment is required for visiting. Any one above the age of 15 years can visit the Ashram. Children below the age of 15 years are not allowed. While non-Indian attires like Jeans, leggings etc are not permitted inside the Ashram, visitors are requested to visit Ashramam preferably in Indian attire.

Gurudev generally meets all the visitors from time to time with brief intervals in between. Visitors remain seated in the outer precinct (veranda) of the main Ashram building, where the Gurudev lives & guides the sadhakas.  Visitors are expected to discuss with Gurudev only on the matters of sadhana and spiritualism. Discussion on worldly matters are not encouraged.

Neither food nor accommodation is provided to the visitors and they are expected to make their own arrangements. Clean & pure water is generally available from the bore wells of the ashram. Visitors are expected to leave behind their footwear and wash their hands and feet, before entering the Ashram. “Mauna” (silence) is the most cherished principle of the Ashram. When absolutely required, visitors are expected to speak in hushed tones, so as not to disturb the tranquility of the Ashram. Visitors are expected not to engage the inmates into unnecessary  conversations. Unauthorized entry into the residential complex is forbidden. For ablution, clean wash-rooms are provided in the back side of the Ashram. Visitors are requested not to pluck the flowers, fruits and disturb the flora and fauna. While waiting for Gurudev to arrive, the visitors are expected to meditate.

Visitors are expected not to touch the Gurudev or any other inmates. Even while prostrating before Gurudev’s holly feet, some distance should be maintained, so as to avoid direct physical contact.

This is one of the very few Ashrams, where no offering of any kind is accepted. Visitors do not find even a single Hundi to drop their offerings. However, fruits and flowers, offered to Gurudev with devotion are accepted.

The atmosphere of Ashram is very serene and it takes the visitors down the memory lanes of the ancient ashrams of the great Rishis, described in our holy scriptures. It soothes the turbulent minds and automatically brings abundant peace. Little meditation while waiting for Gurudev, which culminates into darshan by Gurudev, takes you to a different world altogether, which cannot be described with words. Most of the questions of the visitors are automatically answered from within and many visitors find no need to raise it again with Gurudev! Hardly no visitor return without a sense of fulfillment, peace of mind and contentment.
