Meditation naturally comes to all... When you visit the Annai Aravindhar Ashramam in Pondicherry , the Volunteers guide you to a different 0-level volume ! Seeing more people sitting in meditation, you also will love to slip into a silent meditation... It is no surprise...More

Visited this place when I visited Pondicherry once. The place is extremely peaceful and serene. Once we enter inside, we should be quiet since others will be meditating. Beautiful and extremely clean place set up by the trust. Also some wonderful memorabilia are available here....More

It is not very much attractive for an ordinary tourist, nothing special to learn from the ashram during a casual visit. The silence maintained inside the samadhi is impressive

Very solemn place. Photos not allowed and once entering you must remain silent as people were meditating. Lovely gardens and great library. Walking distance form Le Dupleix.

Sri Aurobindo Ashram is a nice place which served Sri Aurobindo and Mother. We can find their immortal presence in the whole Ashram. No words to explain it's only to experience. Just be there and enjoy their light, love and blessings.

Thank Vijaypeace
