Due to the current coronavirus situation, The Ashram is closed to the public. You can read Devi Ma’s personal letter to the community online. We are however continuing to hold regular online programs to keep you all connected to the Shakti and Swamiji and Devi Ma.

Meditation Sri Nityananda Ashram Mount Eliza


The Ashram offers a variety of programs where you can begin or re-discover your own meditation practice. You can also deepen your existing practice. The ancient yogis believe that meditation is the single most important asset a person can develop. Additionally, a healthy mind thinks positive thoughts, or as Swamiji says, lives in the ‘Clear Space of Good Feeling’. Meditation is the doorway to that space.

Satsang is the high point of the week at The Ashram Mount Eliza. It means ‘to keep the company of Truth’. The night is festive and vibrant, and is the perfect program to attend if you’re visiting the Ashram for the first time. In Swamiji’s company, we hear the teachings of the Great Beings and the inner Self, chant, and meditate. Everyone is welcome. Held online every Saturday night in Mount Eliza from 7.30pm.
