Ashram Munivara was established in 2006 by Ketut Arsana (Sri Jaya Sakti) with the blessing of his teacher Maha Guru Sri Jayanara and follows the spiritual knowledge called “Jnana Buda Siwa”. It is located in Junjungan village, about 5km or a 15 minute drive north of Ubud’s town center.
Santham Bhuana Foundation was established to support the existence of the Ashram. Santham Bhuana’s vision is to achieve peace and balance within the self, nature and the community and its mission is to foster and empower the people through mental, intellectual and spiritual practices so they can find their true inner self.
Puja helps us celebrate the Divine and uplifts our spirit and soul.
By doing Puja, we remember and celebrate/praise the Supreme Lord as well as remove our negative thoughts. It brings positive energy, peace of mind, prosperity and enables us to more clearly touch Holiness, our true nature.
Special Pujas are performed at the Ashram on full moon, new moon and other auspicious Balinese energy days called kajeng kliwon and kliwon days to worship, pay homage and make offerings to the Universal Mother/ Father and all their attributes.
There are 4 x 3 bed dormitory style rooms. Each room has western style en suite bathroom facilities with a hot shower. The Student House is located behind the main Ashram inner sanctum in a serene forest environment.
The Ashram’s Student House has been built to accommodate those who wish to undertake spiritual studies at a deeper level. This accommodation is available for either individual guests or students participating in group retreats. Men and women do not share the same room. The Student House is not a holiday hotel. If you wish to stay at the Ashram there are some Student House rules that must be followed. You must participate in Ashram activities and practices but you may choose the activities and practices you do.
