The Story

Reclaiming Beauty & Inspiration for All 

For over thirty years, Guru Ram Das Ashram in Millis, MA has been a center of spiritual sanctuary, service, healing and hope.  Established by a community of spiritual seekers and yogis,  the vibration of healing and meditation continues to touch the lives of thousands of visitors who come from around the world. People come to study and practice yoga and meditation and to experience this beautiful, spiritual environment. This sacred property is open to all. 

The ashram is founded on the teachings of the Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan: Kundalini Yoga and Sikh Dharma, which honor all paths and uphold the sacredness of each individual’s source of truth.   

Located on 18 acres of lovely woods, fields, and residential land, the community buildings are home to an active Yoga, Healing, and Retreat center: Yoga at the Ashram.  The beautiful temple offers Gurbani Kurtan, Sikh Gurdwara service, and free Langar lunch, open to all, every Sunday

The property includes a basketball court and a spring-fed swimming pool. These two lovely aspects of the property have become overgrown and in need of structural repair due to lack of funds during the recent economic downturn.  

The necessary expertise and knowledge, as well as new enthusiasm, are engaged and ready to renovate and expand this part of the property into a meditation and contemplation destination for all who visit

With your support the vision of this inspirational community can be expanded and continue to serve in new ways. 

Your participation is vital to make this happen.

To be clear, we still need the $850 funding towards the electric work as this first stage progresses.
This electric work is primarily important to establish a basic power source that is a requirement for all the future phases of growth on the ashram property including the pool filtration, lighting on walkways, gardens, recreation courts and power for the fields where expansion of facilities and land use is possible. It comes at a very manageable price due to the gracious reduction of labor cost by the contractor.

We have a beautiful garden and a very old snapping turtle who came to check out the area. With more to go this is a great beginning to reclaiming our ashram property for our whole community which includes you. Come and have fun today in the Garden and enjoy the Gurdwara program today with Snatam giving kirtan and a puppet show for the children and delicious vegetarian meal. Also check and see if snapper is in her spot under the fairy bridge.
Remember we are fundraising presently for the electrical at $850, every donation means a great deal.
With deep gratitude,
Dharma Kaur

Live Wires! We found many things in the ground during the prep of the garden area by the pool and one of them was electrical conduits that feed the security lighting and power for the pool pump etc.. We are very lucky to have volunteers who brought in an electrician to kill the electricity to that area so we can garden and to give us a very generous estimate on repairing the electricity and putting in new lighting and power boxes. His estimate is $850. Unbelievable that he came in that low. Let's take him up on it and gather the funds together to get this job done while we are working on the garden. So please give toward this goal today!
Thank you and all Blessings,
Dharma Kaur
