A children's Ashram on the heights of Kathmandu

The Kathmandu Ashram is the heart of Sri Aurobindo Yoga Mandir.
This is where it all started, at the foot of Chandragiri, a mountain culminating at an

Kathmandu valley and, in the background, the Himalayan range, from the Manaslu massif to Everest

The Incense Workshop

The production of incense was the first income resource of the ashram.
Ramchandra himself has developed, through trial and error, a 100% natural method from the pulp of a specially sticky tree to which he adds a paste, or a mixture of fragrant powder
Very quickly, the children learned to roll incense sticks, small bits of bamboo specially cut for the occasion by following certain knowledge developed by the father of Ramchandra.

It is the incense that you have the opportunity to buy
during events in France with Ramchandra.

The Weaving Workshop

Pashmina is the noblest, oldest and most luxurious variety of cashmere. The ashram buys wool extracted out from high mountain goats, where it is finest and softest: at the neck and stomach. Then it is spun by hand with a spinning wheel made from a bicycle wheel, then spooled to be woven and finally dyed.
It is with this pashmina that the shawls sold at the ashram are made, during visits to Ramchandra here and there, and almost everywhere in the world by correspondence.
