Advaita Ananda Samadhi Ashram

OmyellowSm.jpg

*** Facilities for satsang, meditation, yoga … and spiritual lodging
for residence and/or visit to Ellora, with its famous caves,
and the Grushneshwar Mandir (12th Jyotirlingam) ***

  
Local volcanic stone
was used
in construction of internal walls,
the Meditation Cave, and garden stone walls,

giving an ancient temple/cave-like atmosphere.

Also,
quite a variety of local-area crystals are embedded in the walls through-out,
and thus … the name
"Crystal Meditation Cave".

Throughout, one will notice very little cement between the stones --
thus, one sees the beauty of the stones, crystals and stone work,
NOT a massive amount of cement, as typical of most stone masonry in India.
