In the foothills of the Monashee Mountains, Kripa Mandir Ashram is a working, certified organic farm where visitors experience an environment steeped in both self-remembrance and an exuberant work ethic. Experience a mix of yoga practice in a natural setting, daily meditation, karma work in the gardens/farm and a wholesome vegetarian diet.
