Ayurvedic massages and treatments in the Ayurveda wellness oasis
Everyday you will have an free Ayurveda treatment of choice in the Ayurveda Center included.
Bhakti Yoga, The Yoga of the Heart and Devotion, is also a wonderful way to practice yoga and is especially important to followers of the Shri Jasnath community. Full of passion and fervour, after dark, we sit down together in the temple complex to sing and chant sacred texts and prayers with drum accompaniment!
Satsang with Guru ji
Satsang means “Common Truth” . After the Puja we sit together in the garden and have conversations about things that move us or questions we ask ourselves. A casual round of conversations about God and the world with Guru ji!
Guru ji, is traveling a lot around to visit his diciples and it may be that he is not in the ashram for the entire time.
There will be two main meals a day, along with a small breakfast with fruit in the morning and tea twice.
The main meals consist of daily changing Rajasthani dishes. The meals are freshly prepared, sattvic (healthy diet for body, mind and soul) and of course vegetarian. The vegetables come directly from the organic garden, the dairy products are prepared by themselves from the milk of their own ashram cows.
A typical meal consists of kichidi (rice lentil porridge), ghee, Volkorn chapathi (bread), dhal, salad, yogurt and one or two vegetable dishes.
In the afternoon, smaller workshops on yoga, Ayurveda, cooking, music, mantra and meditation are offered.
Trips to Rishikesh, Jodhpur and Agra can be organised.
The Shri Jasnath Ashram
Little Shri Jasnath Asan (Ashram) is located in the heart of Rajasthan in the small village of Panchla Siddha (Deep Meditation Square) 100 km from Jodhpur. It is one of the oldest Asans in the Malwar region. The great Saint Shri Boyat ji Maharaj, the direct disciple of Shridev Jasnath ji’s, founded the ashram more than 500 years ago. The Shri Jasnath sect is a splinter that can be traced directly back to the yoga god Shiva. Shri Jasnath himself, a great saint who in his only 24 years did much positive work for the area in western Rajasthan, was a direct disciple of Saint Gorkhnak.
The ashram is well known among The Indian followers of the Shri Jasnath community. During large festivities on certain holidays and events, thousands of followers make pilgrimages to the Holy Place to honor the place of their Holy Leaders.
But it is often very peaceful here in the ashram and especially for Western yogis and yoginis who want some authenticity, spirituality and peace, an insider tip.
Many saints have carried out their Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) here, which makes this place highly spiritually charged. The saints spread knowledge and wisdom in the villages and were able to help many people through their yogic power.
As the popularity of the Shri Jasnath Ashram grew, the king of Udaipur Shri Jagat Singh sponsored the construction of the castle for the Ashram building and donated land to the ashram for growing vegetables and grazing the animals. Today, the ashram has beautiful gardens and plantations where organic fruit and vegetables are grown.
Shri Jasnath Asan is very unique in its architecture. It has been lovingly restored and refurnished by the current guru Surajnath Siddh to maintain the ancient charm and traditions of his ancestors. And in fact, as soon as you walk through the first wooden gate of the ashram, you experience a peaceful and spiritual atmosphere.
Culture of Rajasthan
Visitors to the ashram not only have the opportunity to recharge their energy, practice yoga, get Ayurvedic treats and eat delicious vegetarian dishes, but can also immerse themselves deeply in the traditional culture of the Rajasthani life.
The Ashram is the perfect place to experience nature and live stress-free. By the way, you can get to know the simple village life and get in touch with the inhabitants. Here in the ashram, an attempt is made to improve the quality of life of each individual and to establish education, health, non-violence and humanity.
And it is especially the great people here in this ashram that makes the stay here something very special. Here you will find a lot of love, openness and great community. Close friendships with the small Ashram family are quickly established.
The spiritual factor in this little ashram is of course something very special. In the ashram itself, there is a powerful meditation shrine and the tombs of the Gurus incorporated into the temple complex. Pujas (community prayers) are held here twice a day. In the evening you meet for the Arti (fire ceremony) and sing prayers and khirtans accompanied by drums and bells.
The day ends with a satsang with the guru Surajnath ji. Here you sit together and learn more about the ashram, Indian culture and yoga.
In Rajasthan, the desert state, it is hot and dry almost all year round. Only the winter months from November to February are a little more pleasant. In any case, take a headgear with you to protect against the strong sunlight.
Rajasthan attracts the most tourists, so tourism is the livelihood of many locals. Sometimes this can get uncomfortable. Especially in the big cities and tourist strongholds, people are under a lot of pressure to buy something. Often beggars or children come to ask for money, sweets or pens. Here, it should be well thought out who to give something to. In the ashram itself, however, this problem will not be encountered.
Wide, airy and comfortable yoga clothes are recommended. We are in a very traditional region, so the clothes should be body covering. If you like, you can get a yoga uniform in the ashram yourself. Please specify this in advance.
The rooms are clean, large and have attached bathrooms.
What to bring
- Loose and light clothing (knee and shoulder covered, preferably white or bright colours)
- a scarf
- thick socks
- Toiletries (sunscreen) and small medical equipment (in Rishikesh you can get everything)
- Passport (copy), credit or debit card, some cash in your currency (approx. € 50-100),
- Mobile phone, camera, charger (no adapter), maybe laptop
- notebook, writing material
- a lot of curiosity and excitement
