With Prof. R. C. Tampi

Maintaining the spiritual atmosphere of the old Ashram in Bhowali, the new center has been built with modern facilities suitable for study, meditation, and retreat. It can accommodate about 30 delegates in newly built rooms with en suite bath rooms. The facility has hot water and the caterer provides excellent North Indian food.
