Support our Ashram

Our wishlist focuses on five ashram departments, and periodically, we highlight a particular one where your help is most needed. At this time of the year, it is the gardens department. As the rainy season is about to start in Costa Rica, it is time to plant again so that our visitors and residents, including our many species of birds, bees, butterflies and other beautiful creatures, can enjoy our natural sanctuary.
We hope you will enjoy it too on your next visit!

The ashram has always depended on the generous donations and offerings of our sangha and extended family and friends. But with time our equipment is becoming outdated and needs modernizing. Your gift, however big, however small; from a book to a set of kitchen knives to a new camcorder or a kitchen appliance, will be appreciated with great gratitude.

Of course! You are always very welcome to bring a specific gift from the wishlist or another needed item. If you are joining us at the ashram, please send an email to [email protected] so that we can guide you to what is the most needed of the items you might consider bringing.

The ashram is the home of our wisdom school; The Sat Yoga Institute where seekers from all around the world come to study the ancient art and science of spiritual liberation. Help us acquire the books needed for our school’s ever-evolving curriculum, for Book Groups, lending to ashram residents and guests for independent study and of course for Shunyamurti’s own in-depth and cutting-edge research.


Our vegetarian and vegan meals are prepared in our busy ashram kitchen, Ruchira, by mindful and loving yogis. However, our equipment is reaching the end of its lifespan and needs renewal. Your gift will enable the kitchen to continue serving the most delicious, nourishing and healthy meals to visitors and residents.


Help us in our ongoing seva to document, archive and share Shunyamurti´s teachings. We are reaching thousands of seekers all over the world on Youtube as well as our other social media and online channels. We need your help to continuously improve the quality of the offerings, develop live stream, retreat teachings and guided meditations at the highest quality.


Support our Agriculture department, or as we call it, Premaculture. Your donation towards tools and equipment, will ensure that we can continue to develop our gardens, organic greenhouses, and food forests.


With your help, we can continue to expand our gardens and offer an oasis of peace to inspire and connect you again with the sacredness and beauty of our Mother Earth.


Thank you!

With your generous support
the great work of healing our
hearts and our planet is unfolding!

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.


Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.


Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
