Living in a Community: Hacienda de Guru Ram Das—The Home of Yogi Bhajan

“This place—Hacienda de Guru Ram Das—is the fountain of 5,000 years of humanity to follow. Joy and happiness will come in abundance to all who do a little seva-a little service.” -Yogi Bhajan

The Immersion Experience provides a unique opportunity to live and learn in a community of fellow spiritual seekers, integrating the benefits of your practice into your life following the course. Join the living legacy of the teachings of Yogi Bhajan and return home inspired to develop your own community.

    ◼ Daily sadhana in a community of Kundalini Yoga practitioners
    ◼ Two community meals every week—the Gurus Langar
    ◼ Daily and weekly Gurdwara services
    ◼ Community events and meditations
    ◼ Enjoy the fellowship of Immersion Students in Ashram-style living and experience community life

Living in the dormitory-style housing with my fellow Immersion students was so supportive. I feel I have a new family—a 3HO global family—and I now have places all over the world to call home!

Hacienda de Guru Ram Das What to Expect

The residents of the Hacienda de Guru Ram Das Ashram practice the 3HO lifestyle and technology of Sikh Dharma; members of the community grow their hair, cover their heads, are lacto-vegetarians, and do not use any substances such as alcohol, drugs or tobacco. Many wear white clothing. We ask that you dress modestly and remove your shoes while indoors.

The use of alcohol, drugs and tobacco is prohibited anywhere on the Ashram grounds and in the homes of Ashram members and Ashram dormitories. Vegetarianism is adhered to as part of the lifestyle, so please do not bring any meat products of any kind into the private homes or dormitory housing.
