A Sanctuary within a Sanctuary – the Shanti Mandiram
In the heart of the ashram, close to the Kali Temple, quietly nestled amongst the coconut palms, is the Shanti Mandiram, a new 600 m² open-aired rooftop retreat center with magnificent views of the Arabian sea. The serenity of the hall facilitates the meditation and silent practice; just entering the Shanti Mandiram one feels already so peaceful!
This retreat center, which was inaugurated in December 2017, includes two main halls, the larger Shanti Mandiram for the meditation and yoga sessions and the adjoining Silent Retreat Dining Hall, where all meals, snacks and tea are served. The retreat center also features a fully equiped kitchen, a lounge area and changing rooms with showers.
