Bal Ashram is a safe home for boys and young men. Many have lost one or both of their parents and come from severely impoverished, and in some cases, abusive home environments. At Bal Ashram the children receive housing, food, clothing, and an opportunity to receive education and guidance. They are taught yoga and mediation, as well as hygiene, nutrition and social skills. Most of all, the boys living there find a loving home and family.
The Ashram is Babaji’s home when he is in India. It is also headquarters for the Aghor Foundation, which oversees and administers social service programs in Varanasi, and serves as a platform for the Foundation’s spiritual, cultural, vocational and social programs.
