I would like to spend a couple of months in an Indian ashram preferably in South India near the sea where to learn practices and about ourselves. Any good suggestions ? Not expensive and suitable for foreigners.

Is Aurobindo one a good choice ?

Thanks and Om Shanti

Some addition: Any place in

Some addition:

Any place in India wild Himalayas etc. I would prefer of course South India but not the famous and commercial ashram. Those where you can do serious meditation and learning about hindu scriptures, also yoga.

Planning May and June

You must come with much money.

Dear friend, I think everywhere in india now money is the first thing and your love and surrenderness is second because i have been many many ashraams of many best guruji of India but could not enjoy so much.
Knowledge in inside you and god is the best teacher in inside of us. If you are ready to stand on the way of realization or advaita so you don't need to be worry so much about Guru. Be brave to sit in asana by keeping silence.All the next teaching come after first practice by time and effort.
Please don't mind me rough because it is only my feeling.

LOVe ARyana

This is completely

This is completely incorrect. I'm sorry that this was your impression. maybe check why you were drawn to these specific ashrams that chased after your money or alternatively check if the situation objectively was so.

In most ashrams, you will get a proper service. i would recommend ramanashramam in tiruvannamalai and also shisedri ashram near by. you can also go to meherabad to the pilgrimage center of meher baba, and there is the ashram of amma chi in Kerala and of sai baba in puthaparty. just browse here in the gurus directory - in each guru under "locations" tab.

I agree with you, it depends

I agree with you, it depends which ashram you are going to, you have to search and ask. Many are money minded like has been said but many other are for serious seekers. I finally found one in Haridwar, they are not asking any money just a free donation for staying there with food. Others ask little money and is understandable, they have expense also. That's why a deep search and investigation is necessary. Ramana one you cannot stay too long

Thanks and OM SHANTI

Bhaghawan Nithyananda Ashram at Kanhangad

Hello Friend, Saw your requirement, though late, i thought of posting this; one of the best place for meditation and simple living is Bhagawan Nithyananda Ashram at Kanhangad, Kerala (near to Mangalore). Bhagawan Nithyananda Samadhi temple is in Ganeshpuri (100Km off Mumbai) and he attained Jeeva Samadhi in 1961.
Bhagawan Nithyananda, was one of the greatest Yogis of modern times and was a 'janma siddha' — one born with the full realization of his own divine nature. He was an Avadhoot of incredible Yogic powers. He was an embodiment of love and compassion. He granted succor to millions of people who thronged to him for solace and divine grace.

He was a silent Yogi, who communicated through eloquent silence. He taught no one through words, but his whole life itself was a teaching. He never preached or gave lectures. He spoke rarely, but he was a universal teacher. He was not a philosopher, but every word that fell from his lips contained the seed of perennial philosophy. He was a power house to the seekers of spirituality and an apostle of divinity to his devotees. Though he had any formal education in a school, he guided the destinies of millions and gifted to the humanity the celebrated 'Chidakasha Gita' which intricate the quaint essence of the great scriptures.

Please speak to the ashram before you visit and get permission for long stay.

Bhagawan is my Guru and initiated me through dreams by giving his vision. More information i will be able to help you.
