Women's Ashramas

I read with great interest your article about womens ashramas. I have been a long time advocate of places for our women to take shelter. Having grown up in ISKCON and later looking outside to find a place which was conducive to female bodies.

One part of your article stood out to me:

The lady from Kolkata who wanted to join and serve full time for the rest of her life.

I wanted to write and let you know that you can send her a reply I have an answer for you.

the Vrinda mission under Swami BA Paramadvaiti Swami (ACBSP) has a temple with womens ashrama - Sarasvati Kunja- in Sri Dham Mayapur. I just spent 6 months living there with my two very young children. They also have a womans ashrama (actually it's an entire Women-only temple named Vamsi Kunja) in Vrindavan...which is where more senior Matajis go.

Not relevant to that particular mataji but maybe of interest to your good self - is that Vrinda mission has "Visnu Priya Ashramas" which are for women (and sometimes with their children) in most countries they are active throughout South America and Europe.

Contact details, should you like further information for the Lady or yourself, can be found at:
