Seva Program

Seva Program at the Ashram

The Ram Dass Guru Association Seva Program offers an opportunity to all who would like to  do selfless service in the Ashram. Participants share daily community practices such as sadhana and kirtan and meals, and work together to maintain the Ashram house and garden. It is an opportunity to embark on a 40-day practice, the time it takes to drop or implement a habit. All this close to the sea and immersed in a typical  rural area of Portugal.

How can we help you?

Sevadars responsibilities

Spiritual growth includes both spiritual practices and labour. Crystallisaton of your spirit will come about when reality meets the resistance of your mind and of your fantasises. Burning your karma and fast progress will come about when you confront your subconscious patterns and tendencies and surrender to the greatness of the present moment.The humble work of cleaning, cooking, serving food, working in the garden, hosting guests and helping others are ways to serve God. 

Branding & Marketing

In order to reach as many people as possible, ARDG offers several different options to participate in this Program. Each option is like a kriya. If you have the time and willingness to commit to the 40 days, you will certainly have a transformative experience. For those with less availability we offer a Seva retreat for 15 days, with multiple dates throughout the year.
