Hey guys,

I am 23 years old and I am planning this summer my first trip to India (Yayyyy).
I am looking for an ashram to spend my first week in, and I am quite lost...
Basically the things that are important to me are the people and the nature...
Any recommendations ?

Thank you all :)

First ashram

Hey, thanks for your comment

Regarding to location I prefer somewhere close to Delhi or Bombay. Since I am going alone I prefer somewhere where I won't have to use much train of bus.
I am looking for activities such as yoga, meditation mainly... The nature is very important to me and I would love to study some more about the Buddhism... I was thinking about osho ashram in Pune . What do you think??

Have a beautiful day :)

I wouldn't recommend the Osho ashram. It is not an ashram anymore, it is more of a resort and I found it non spiritual in its essence, more of a center for spiritual gymnastics.

I would recommend you to browse the locations in the guru profiles (, you have there good listings of all the centers and ashrams associated with each guru. You can filter there according to country (India).

If I were you, I would arrive at Delhi and travel by bus or train to Rishikesh (it's not far away). There you have a great variety of good ashrams (yoga, meditations etc) with a great view in a great atmosphere. Just check in that the time you plan to go is ok for this area of India (although people go to Rishikesh year around).
