Swami's and Ashrams of India.
Ashrams in Bangalore - India..
Any road in Bangalore will lead you to a yoga school,if you go further you will find a hi tech yoga ashram and on further inquiries you will find a 5 star yoga resort with A to Z facilities including boarding and lodging.On entering you will see what a 5 star hotel looks like and even better with a fresh air,clean look as far as your eyes can see the sky touching the earth.Clear water in the swimming pool and a guest serviceing staff with hands & palms folded a sign as old as perhaps 5000 years.This sign doesn't need a word or a touch but has significance,which says that the person's heart has touched your heart and are closeted like the palms folded.
You are sure to see your room with hand woven fabrics all over in soft colors as also bright colors pleasing to your eyes.If you are a registered guest you would have been picked up at the Airport or Railway Station.A night or a day of rest and your Yoga class starts.The first day will be a calm and quite squat on the mat with other guests assembled and all of them will hear a well practiced hi tech lecture on what will be their stay like and what is expected of you at this holy place.A sample course of yoga may be given to you and of course the meditation that has to go with it.
The day is over and so your money perhaps $ 100 ( but not Rs.100 for Indians ) it will be a fortune,for average Indians this $100 ) there are of course plenty of Indians who can burn that much money.These Resorts are indeed well maintained and healthy good food is served for coffee,tea,breakfast,lunch,evening snacks and dinner which is followed by a cup of milk.No meat or alcohol is served.Even tobacco smoke or chewing including all sorts of sachets taken in any form to chew that contains tobacco made only in India that is the rule..Sex how will they know may be they will not see.
These health resorts also has GYM & SPA there may be Massage by Lady's in their bath rooms of high rent which all the big wigs can afford with their unaccounted money.You do enjoy a stress free atmosphere.You may go in search of other costly resorts with other value added features.This you may use or omit for reasons that prevents you like your wife not allowing you to have a full body massage by experienced young girls trained to give you a good massage for gaining your vital organ power.
The food here is 100% Vegetarian and will be from Organic Farm owned by the resort only.Most of the politicians hold their official meetings unknown to the media and will be a quick get in and get out visit paying money a few lakhs from which a village could add a room to its over crowded rooms or used in some form to help our rural seine improve.
The real owner of the form and resort will be a good friend of the politician so where is the question of a room for a school or even a solar street light.These resorts are also used for film shooting and the stars will have to stay here.Politicians go to Resorts.People go to see the fikms being shot at these places.The film people are prepared to take their films shot anywhere in the world no tax how lucky.
Now to end the sad story after you return from your Yoga class you have to daily practice the lessons if you won;t you will be sorry.
The best way is to keep going as these yoga schools have their lessons in stages and once you complete all the lessons you get addicted to practice and that is something all people cannot afford to do for some reason or other.
There are so many Swami's in India and touring all over the world teaching Yoga,meditation, Ayurveda,Herbs for any sort of illness which goes away from the front door to enter from the back door not because of Herbs but on account of Herbs used with drugs.Not all Swamis's are doing it but some one you go by your bad-luck.
You must come to India and see one which has branches all over the city's of India it is very popular and is called ART OF LIVING - The website URL is given under,This has a different culture of its own.The Guruji has gone round the world with his golden massage of world Peace.He must have been sent to Copenhagen.
