Welcome to our Volunteer Program

Eco Volunteer Program

Our project, called Jhanavi Kunja in Mayapur, it's not an organic farm but rather, it's a spiritual ashram that has the joy and growth of all involved in mind. It is important for you to know that we are quite flexible, as the number of volunteers and their abilities and interests vary.
However we follow, and ask you to follow, some basic principles, such as: not consuming any kind of meat, eggs or drugs, and abstaining from sexual relations. Please be flexible as well, and get ready for new discoveries!

We are not one point focused on hatha yoga. It is a part of the schedule for those who wants to do it.
Our goals and activities are listed below. You can choose what is appealing to you according to availability, which may vary from time to time:

-Spend some exemplar peaceful time in our gardens and environs.
-Go on fieldtrips.

-Make web sites to awaken people. This is something you can also do from home.

Our ashram was started by our spiritual guide, Swami Paramadvaiti, who has founded many eco community ashrams, especially in South America.

Actually we ask you to pay a minimum cost of $10 USD per day to bear the cost of the expenses of the volunteer and keeps the ashram functioning. One works around 4 hours. To this minimum donation you will receive 3 meals at day and one wonderful bamboo room near to the Ganges.

We are happy to welcome all helping hands, and we hope to help you to learn something wonderful as well.
