Life in the Ashram (SRF Monks)

This class will provide a glimpse into the life of being an SRF monk, one who has dedicated himself to monastic discipline and meditation, prayer, and service to our Guru’s worldwide mission. It will also give eligible male devotees the chance to consider whether a life in the ashrams of Self-Realization Fellowship might be for them. And it will conclude with a short video that takes one further into the daily life and experience of those who are striving to follow, outwardly and inwardly, in the footsteps of our Guru on the path of outer as well as inner renunciation.
