Anamay Vedic Ashram is nestled in thick forests in Kausani (Himalaya region, Uttarakhand, India), depending on the season there is a nice view of the Himalayas.
Ashram is a Vedic School for boys who are trained to become Vedic Experts. As a rule there are 40-50 students and up to 12 Acharyas (Vedic Teachers). All of them practice Transcendental Meditation and Yoga every day. Near the Ashram there are 5 acres of land for organic cultivation of vegetables and a dairy farm. The Ashram except visitors, there are 25 guest rooms and an Ayurvedic Panchakarma Clinic
The ashram as well as the Anamay Vedic Retreat Guest house is completely vegetarian, no alcoholic drinks or any kind of smoking is allowed on the entire campus. All guests that are coming here, whether they are paying guests or willing helpers, love to come here because they appreciate the silence, Vedic&Yogic atmosphere, and the ancient Indian values and tradition.
They would like to host working travelers and would appreciate their help. They expect the working guests to work for 5 hours a day. They are ready to provide you with 3 vegetarian meals and morning ayurvedic tea (they don’t have black coffee or black tea there). As for accommodation, you are welcome to stay at their guest rooms, usually they provide with single rooms with bathroom. Every bathroom has hot water. If you are going to come with your friends you may stay in one room. Working travellers are welcome to attend yoga and ayurveda classes.
The climate is mild all there, snow is rare. So there is always some work in organic garden going on all year round. Also you may be asked to help with construction work, cleaning. They would love to hear from travellers with artistic wall painting skills and aroma oils experts.
