Become a Monk

athato brahma jijnasa – now its time to ask questions

this ancient aphorism has facinated over the centuries many people to strive to understand truth. As Monks our ambition is to get as close to the truth as possible. This involves a constant endeavor of self reflexion and clear mind. In our Ashram we offer men as well as ladies the opportunity to concentrate on nothing else but spiritual life. Renouncing all that is an obstacle in spiritual life and accepting whatever is favorable, we strife to get a clear vision of reality. 

You are welcome to join us in this pursuit. Please contact us if you desire to become a monk. The minimum time frame is 1year of becoming a monk, the first three months are probation period. 

Join the Community

our Vision is to create a Vedic village where people of all walks of life can find its place to contribute. We currently have no space to offer but are working on plans how to expand our facilities. Yet you are still welcome to visit us regularly and become a Friend of Krishna.
