Sri Aurobindo Ashram reviews

I do not understand what to see in this place as a tourist. There is a grave of Shri Aurobindo. You walk silently to there and get out. There is no body to tell you about the place or explain why... more »
Serene, silent and profound. These words sum up my experience. On ones own birthday one is allowed to meditate for about 20 minutes in Sri Aurobindo's room. That is the room in which the great Yogi spent more than a decade on his yogic mission. To spend ones birthday in the room is a rare opportunity. For entering the room one has to be at the ashram by 9am and take a pass/card for entry.
Serene wonderful place of spirituality...one need to visit such places once in a life time and you need to meditate morning and evening in the holy place after taking off from work for minimum 1week to experience the aura,peace, contentment and joy.... your perspective of life will change in this place.... good books available... Pondicherry is awesome place one should never miss in their lifetime...it has wonderful beaches.... good meditation centres.... good food and weather... especially in September to January......
