Seva at The Ashram

All our daily activities at The Ashram are centred around making every action an offering to the Divine. It's called seva (selfless service). Seva is part of our path of Bhakti: experiencing the joy of serving and receiving the blessings of Maha Lakshmi. Adding to that, seva in this particular location offers the unique opportunity to serve the Divine in the home of Paramahamsa Vishwananda.

Everyone is asked to take part in seva during their stay at The Ashram, including day visitors and overnight guests. Visitors and guests do not need to apply for a seva program; just come to the seva coordination desk for your daily seva check-in at 9:15 am (9:30 am on Saturdays) during non-event times and from 9:30 – 9:45 am in the main lobby during event times.
