Yoga, Meditation & Satsang Days
Begin the New Year by diving deep within and enjoying the unique spiritual energy in the ancient pilgrimage place of Arunachala. During the 7 days, you will have your daily programme with the group from morning till noon. After this, the day is yours and the options are many in the spiritual centre of the “ashram area”. You can meditate, participate in rituals, chanting or satsangs or simply stay in the peaceful presence in the main ashrams (Ramana Ashram & Yogi Ram Surat Kumar Ashram).
Price: 5.100 DKK/683 EURO

Visit as a guest, not as a tourist
Get inspired by the direct touch! Govind invites you to “his India” – in his home country and to the mountain Arunachala where Govind has been meditating since he was a teenager. This opens an opportunity for you to learn from inside an ancient, rich and unique culture. You can spend time in and around the holy mountain of Arunachala meditating in the caves like Ramana Maharshi and other spiritual masters have done and walk the pilgrimage route around the mountain visiting the small ancient temples on the way. There will also be plenty of time to explore this unique part of India visiting the markets, the different restaurants, enjoy a chai with the locals and visit the amazing grand Tiruvannamalai Temple in the city.
