  • This is a beautiful and peaceful ashram to visit in Rishikesh. There is a bookshop with books and CD's of Swami Sivananda.  more »
  • Discreetly arrogant answer to the question if I can look at the ashram and possibly stay a few days. You probably have to register two months in advance to stay there longer. However, it is possible to participate in drop-in hours spontaneously.
