Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

Joining an ashram

I have been wanting to join an ashram for some time now. Realizing that I find it hard to concentrate on spiritual growth within modern society and needing the guidance of a guru, I have been trying to find a good ashram in India.
However, all google results, more or less, only reveal ashrams that only offer visits and short, expencive, work shops... or merely hotel-like accommodations.
Can anyone direct me to the name or address of a real ashram, one that accepts novice students that are dedicated and willing to work for the ashram and willing to learn the ways of the Vedas?
Obviously I have studied the Vedas and practiced meditation, but I'm far away from feeling able to call myself a Hindu...

I would most of all want to join an Advaita ashram, but the only one I could find was the Ramana Maharshi ashram, which also only offers brief "accommodations".
I hope my interest in Advaita will not offend or annoy practicing ISKCON members, as I have also attended ISKCON temples...

Hari bol,

Please contact the asram of your choice, arrange a visit and talk with the person(s) in charge.
Before joining one should usually get to know the place by several visits of various lengths.
