During this retreat, you will be staying in the “Center for Bharathiya Dharmic and Cultural Studies”, a beautiful Ashram embedded amidst rice fields, right at the foot of the holy mountain Arunachala.
Your rooms are spread in the Ashram garden, which is a paradise full of exotic flowers, birds and butterflies. The heart of the Ashram is the Satsang pavilion with a marble floor and wooden carvings.
There are marble meditation hall and a small Hindu temple on the property, and also an open-plan dining hall with an elegant roof, stone pillars, and a granite floor.
Away from the noise of the town, the site covers an area of more than seven hectares, spread towards the mountain and providing lots of space for walking and jogging.
The retreat starts on Sunday, February 2, 2020, at 1 p.m. and ends Saturday, February 22, 2020, after lunch at approximately. 2 p.m. Retreat languages are English, Dutch, Russian and German.
Experience and enjoy the presence of a living master in daily Satsang, guiding you home. Satsang with Madhukar, consisting of meditative silence and support, is held twice daily in the most beautiful Ashram in Tiruvannamalai. Let’s explain: Satsangs are gatherings where busy minds cool down. Through silence, meditation, dialogue, and chanting.
In the morning, you will enjoy breakfast and then meditate together. At lunch, a healing vegetarian-ayurvedic detox diet revives your body and clears your mind.
In the afternoon, you can relax and release by taking a rest or take walks in the spacious grounds of the Ashram. Mid-afternoon, you are invited for tea time to the Ashram’s dining hall. Two to three times a week there is Mantra chanting late afternoon. In your free time, you can apply self-inquiry (Atma Vichara) in which you get introduced in this retreat. Your experiences with it, you can share with Madhukar during daily Satsang, where it is allowed to speak and arising questions can be clarified.
You have dinner together in the Ashram dining hall, and in the evening true peace reveals itself during Satsang with Madhukar: Thoughts fade and give way to inner silence.
During the retreat, pilgrimages around the sacred mountain, walks to the golden pond and sitting in Ramana Maharshi’s living room will deepen the silence within you. Hence you will immerse into utter silence truly beyond imagination. Optionally free yoga classes are offered in the mornings at sunrise. You are welcome to join!
During this retreat, you will go on the Pradakshina, a pilgrimage around the sacred mountain, one during a full moon and one at daytime. Wonderful walks in the nature for example to the golden pond, and visit of the Ramana Maharshi Ashram including sitting in his living room.

The retreat takes place in the most beautiful Ashram in Tiruvannamalai, right at the foot of the holy mountain Arunachala.
Spiritual seekers from all over the world are drawn to Arunachala which is said to be the spiritual center of the universe.
Tiruvannamalai, located in the federal state of Tamil Nadu, South India, is where Sri Ramana Maharshi lived, the most famous sage of the twentieth century both in India and the rest of the world. His deep silence is still present today.
The living room of Ramana Maharshi, the destination for numerous spiritual searchers, lies inside of the Ramana Ashram in Tiruvannamalai. From there a path is leading up the mountain to the Virupaksha cave, the place where Ramana Maharishi meditated.
In Tiruvannamalai, dedicated to the deity Shiva, the Arunachalesvara Temple erects with its four gateway towers, covering 10 hectares, one of the largest temple complexes in India.
During this retreat, you will be served with a daily vegetarian-ayurvedic detox diet during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Most of it comes from the Ashram gardens directly at the foot of Arunachala. Your food is freshly prepared every day. During breakfast, lunch, and dinner, tea is included.
During the retreat, all your attention is directed inward. In order to benefit the most of it, you will refrain from activities during this time that goes beyond those offered in the retreat.
We leave the Ashram only together, as a group, for example, to visit Ramana Maharshi's living room, for Pradakshina and walks to the Golden Pond.
Those who wish to explore Tiruvannamalai and the area around Arunachala on their own, are free to rent accommodation for this purpose in Tiruvannamalai after the retreat. Madhukar - Enlighten Life will gladly assist you.
