DEPARTMENTS OF THE ASHRAM
The Ashram consists of over 80 departments which include farms, gardens,
healthcare, guesthouses and engineering units among many others. Most of these
departments have emerged spontaneously, sometimes because of a need for a
product or service that wasn't available, often because the Mother encouraged a
sadhak to pursue his art. Under Her personal guidance and care, these small
units soon grew up into well-established departments.
While externally they help sustain the Ashram, the real purpose of these
units is to serve as a field for sadhana, the spiritual discipline. Work in the
Ashram is to be done unselfishly, in the spirit of service and as a means of
offering oneself to the Divine.
