An ardent nature and literature lover, I experience an inexplicable joy and ecstasy gliding through my days in Swaashramam. Swaashramam means Aashramam of oneself. It is established in 2001 with an aim to connect idealogical people who understand and respect all religious beliefs but who can think, visualize and try to reach a space beyond all religions. A part of this establishment welcomes paying guests to self-sustain itself. The place unwinds oneself to unleash creative thoughts. One can derive pure delight being in this place that is surrounded by nature as it constantly redefines the purpose of life. Swaashramam is the place where you belong.
