Meditation Sri Nityananda Ashram Mount Eliza


The Sri Nityananda Ashram offers a variety of programs where you can begin or re-discover your own meditation practice. You can also deepen your existing practice. The ancient yogis believe that meditation is the single most important asset a person can develop. Additionally, a healthy mind thinks positive thoughts, or as Swamiji says, lives in the ‘Clear Space of Good Feeling’. Meditation is the doorway to that space.

Mount Eliza Ashram Satsang 2018 Meditation Intensive

Weekly Satsang

Satsang is the high point of the week at Sri Nityananda Ashram. It means ‘to keep the company of Truth’. The night is festive and vibrant, and is the perfect program to attend if you’re visiting the Ashram for the first time. In Swamiji’s company, we hear the teachings of the Great Beings and the inner Self, chant, and meditate. Everyone is welcome. Held every Saturday night in Mount Eliza from 7.30pm.
