  • "The Art of Living" is located on Kanakapura Main road in a very calm and beautiful environment. Away from the city's pollution and rush to reach somewhere. It is just 5-6 Km from Nice road (Kanakapura toll gate). Within a year you'll also be able to travel to the ashram by metro as the metro project is in full swing and pillars have already come up in the close vicinity of the ashram. So reaching from any part of this city will be easier and less tiring as you don't have to sit through traffic jams.(At the time of this review). You can visit art of living websites to understand the various programs which are provided by the ashram. The campus is big and beautiful with lush green cover all around it. You can also find couple of lakes within the ashram boundaries. Also near the parking area the ashram is also growing crops such as spring onions, coriander, mint, sunflower, coconut trees etc to name of you. Living in a city environment it's very hard to find anyone growing these crops which we use in our everyday lives. Feels great to see how these crops are grown. Do have a look if you have the time to. The ashram is beautiful from the inside and feels great to be in that silence . You can experience how wonderful silence feels to your mind body and your soul.
  • It's a beautiful place for all age group. Serene atmosphere. Lovely people. Organic vegetables. A bus tour of the whole campus is well organized and guided by volunteers .enlightenment in satsang in the evening. You go with a smile on your face at the end and yet feel to come again and again .
