Support

It is to the Divine that all riches belong. It is the Divine who lends them to living beings, and it is to Him that they must naturally return.

The Mother

Sri Aurobindo Sadhana Peetham is a non-profit organization and depends partly on donations from guests and integral yoga devotees for the maintenance of the ashram facilities, programs and meals.

Support of the Sri Aurobindo Sadhana Peetham helps both to serve existing activities and to expand programs to keep pace with the growth and aspirations of the wider collective.

There are a variety of ways in which one may support the ashram and its activities:

Work Contributions

Since karma yoga is a major focus of the Sri Aurobindo Sadhana Peetham, we welcome volunteers who would like to come out to the ashram to join the residents in daily collective work consecrated to the Divine. See the visiting page for more information on overnight stays. Please contact us to discuss possible karma yoga activities.

Financial Contributions

Contributions support the annual current operations of Sri Aurobindo Sadhana Peetham. They are tax deductible for those able to utilize charitable contributions on their Federal and/or state tax returns.
