Charm of Mayavati Ashrama, The

Charm of Mayavati Ashrama, The

Swami Vivekananda could visualize the coming of his western admirers and consumed as he was with India’s uplift, he desired a healthy exchange of ideas between the East and the West. Mayavati was selected as the venue and the sublime Himalayas formed the backdrop for the scene of cultural integration. Mayavati Ashrama takes pride in its association with such a noble cause and in spreading the enlightening ideas of Ramakrishna-Vivekananda and Vedanta through its journal Prabuddha Bharata and publication of books. The Advaita Ashrama at Mayavati, came into existence in March 1899 and has steadily continued to abide by the directions given by Swamiji.

The story of Mayavati Ashrama is replete with interesting incidents and anecdotes from the lives of monastics and dedicated devotees who sacrificed their all in answer to Swami Vivekananda’s call. A collection of 18 articles, compiled and edited by Swami Satyapriyananda.
