Located in the holy city of Rishikesh, the Shivanand Ashram is a heaven on earth, guiding people toward spiritual peace and happiness. This serene abode of Saint Swami Shivanand is maintained and administered by an organization called the Divine life society. It is one of the favourite places for visitor out to spend some time meditating and living between nature and the divine authority. The place is an ideal religious yoga and meditation centre. Situated near the Ganges, the holy river of India and Ganga Vatika, the ashram is a beautiful and very calm place to be. The satsangs, feast and yoga sessions are well arranged, and the ashram is well maintained.
Sivananda Ashram now offers a course on yoga and meditation classes every day except Sunday. Apart from that, publication of books, pamphlets and magazines are also undertaken with an aim to rival the scientific aspects of yoga and Vedanta, universal religion, philosophy and ancient medicine, all over the world. Various cultural and spiritual conferences, discourses and training are also held periodically. This institution established by the revered saints is doing all it can to bring about quick moral and spiritual regeneration in the world.
River Ganges follows nearby the ashram, carrying with itself the message of seers and sages long gone, keeping the connection between past and the present intact. This relaxing environment around the premises, opposite the holy river and amidst the lush green of the valley, yoga lovers can indulge in their passion and further enhance their spiritual knowledge.
