Get involved

As a not for profit organisation, Shri Jasnath Asan is almost exclusively run by volunteers, who selflessly dedicate their time to the Ashram’s continued work for the local and global environment. Residents are supported throughout the year by a host of extraordinary Karma Yogis, who come from around the world to offer their time and special skills to the Ashram’s development. Karma Yogis become another member of the family and join in with all Ashram activities.

All seats for volunteers are currently full, What would you like to volunteer for?
