What is an Ashram?
Traditionally, an ashram is a spiritual hermitage or a monastery. Additionally, today the term ashram often denotes a locus of Hindu cultural activity such as yoga, music study or religious instruction. In Indonesia, ashrams are also called Pasraman. A Pasraman is a Hindu educational institution.
When to visit?
The best time to visit an Ashram would be during Festivals or on Sunday. Every Sunday, every ashram conducts a Sunday Feast, complete with kirtan (chanting of God's names), a class on the Krishna conscious philosophy and a free vegetarian meal.
