Sri Aurobindo Ashram

The ashram was founded in 1920 when Sri Aurobindo reached Pondicherry, a French colony and put in place his ideas of peaceful community. The ashram, for long, was run by his French companion Mirra Alfassa, universally known as the Mother.

Each member of the Ashram is free to mediate the way and by the course he follows and there are no rituals, obligatory practices, and systematic instruction. The ashram is a diversified community with more than 1200 members out of which 400 are the students of Centre of Education.

To support the administrative system of the ashram, it has various departments to look after basic needs of the members. More than that there are farms, gardens, printing press, libraries, and a number of small-scale industries situated in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Sikkim.

The ashram houses, the samadhi of Sri Aurobindo and the mother and is open to everybody for fixed hours every day.
