Anāmay Ashram

Anāmay ashram is inspired by the teachings of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It is located on the outskirt of the village of Kausani in the Kumaon Himalaya region of the state of Uttarakhand in an area well known for its natural beauty. It offers, free of cost, a full-time residential program training children to become professional Vedic Pundits. There are currently 50 students in the school with plans to expand to 121 students. Ten highly experienced acharyas are training the children.


The ashram as of now offers instruction in three of the four Vedas, as well as Upangas, Upavedas and Vedangas such as Āyurved, Vyākaran, and Jyotish. In addition to studying traditional courses and recitation of the Vedas, the students at the ashram practice yoga and the Transcendental Meditation (TM) and TM-Sidhi Program daily.

Upon completion of their studies, the graduates of Anāmay ashram will be able to uphold and teach the Vedic dharma and perform Vedic rites to bring support of natural law to their respective communities.
