Worldwide Ashram - A Spiritual Quest With Ascended Masters
Welcome to the awakening path and a way to deeper enlightenment, which comes from the mystical teachings of all the world's religions and the inner contact with the great spiritual teachers.
We are on a spiritual treasure hunt and have been for many lifetimes, seeking the Grail, the Teacher, and the kingdom of heaven that is the hidden treasure of the heart. We seek the hidden mysteries and the key to the meaning of life. How to discern the Real from the evidence life presents us.
Really, Why Are We Here?
What is life about? What is the goal? How does one graduate to a closer contact with the sages and saints, with the Masters?
Are there, indeed, Masters and what are they the masters of? "To be or not to be, that is the question", wrote our Shaker of the spear. His challenge still beckons to us to rise and be the manifestation of sacred fire that is the Light within. The Masters are the ones who have met that challenge and remained with us as our teachers. They are the Saints and Sages that each religion has honored.
The Masters are members of a Universal Brotherhood. This Brotherhood can be contacted. They are ahead of us as we ascend the path. Their guidance helps us see the way before us. Together we work to manifest God's will - the will of the Divine Logos - on earth, as indeed it is manifest in heaven. This Brotherhood is united in consciousness and provides the students a worldwide ashram.
Ashram - A Condition of Mind And Heart
The word Ashram is a word that resonates in the deep inner soul for many seekers. An Ashram is not just a special place; it is also a condition of mind and heart. As Father Sebastian Painadath points out, ashram comes from the Sanskrit word "Asrama", which means "total pursuit, full dedication, 'tireless striving, stretching its arms towards perfection' ".
This is more than physical place, but that state of consciousness where ere everything has a spiritual or sacred dimension. The spiritual seeker experiences this "Ashramic consciousness", the gift of sensing the sacred dimension behind every situation, condition, nature, and in the eyes of all.
We Are Spiritual Adventurers
We are treasure seekers searching for enlightenment and the way back home.
The higher consciousness of spiritual seekers is accelerating. The spiritual journey towards meaning, enlightenment, and universal brotherhood is a sharply ascending path. It requires just as much training as the climbers of Everest and other compelling mountain peaks undertake. Seekers feel an internal focus as a pressure, as a spiritual guide, as a tangible Spiritual Presence drawing them ever upwards and inwards to the very heart of life and its meaning.
This journey is the path to the Universal Ashram. While there are Ashrams that are home to great spiritual teachers, the ashram of this website is a place of consciousness and a tangible experience as well. The world itself is calling out for freedom. Earth is to become Freedom's Star. Come, it is time to forge the consciousness that can fulfill this fiery destiny.
If these thoughts resonate with you, you are a member of the Brotherhood whether you know it outwardly or not. You are not alone, your brothers and sisters are searching for you, to help you find your keys to fulfill your spiritual destiny, your dharma and return to your true home - and to learn and grow from your heart's creativity and passion.
You are entering - and may begin to remember - the world's greatest story, the true spiritual history of this planet and the great teachers and their students who have served here.

"Wayfarer, friend, let us travel together. Night is near, wild beasts are about, and our campfire may go out. But if we agree to share the night watch, we can conserve our forces.
Tomorrow our path will be long and we may become exhausted. Let us walk together. We shall have joy and festivity. I shall sing for you the song your mother, wife and sister sang. You will relate for me your father's story about a hero and his achievements. Let our path be one.
Be careful not to step upon a scorpion, and warn me about any vipers. Remember, we must arrive at a certain mountain village. Traveler, be my friend."
