Arunachala Ashrama is a non-profit organization serving the needs of sincere seekers in an informal, friendly environment. In the same manner that prevails in Sri Ramana Maharshi's Ashrama in India, food and accommodation is provided to friends and guests without any formal rate of charge. The Ashrama does accept donations from those who value its work and ideals.
