Residential retreat with Swami Atmananda Udasin
(in English with Czech translation)

This Retreat with Swami Atmananda is a great opportunity to deepen the practice of awareness and Self-inquiry and to reach a clarity of understanding.
Swami Atmananda offers an in-depth look at Spiritual Awakening and Consciousness, in the tradition of Advaita. It is neither an experience, nor a state of being: it is simply a spontaneous and instant recognition of our true Nature, the Ever-Present Pure Consciousness which is the eternal Self. There is no “awakened being”, only pure Awakening…

The retreat is preceeded by two evening satsangs in Prague (22nd and 23rd May, Centrum Lotus).


Swami Atmananda Udasin is a teacher of Non-Duality (Advaita) and the resident Spiritual Head of Ajatananda Ashram, situated at the feet of the Himalayas in Rishikesh, India. Originally from Belgium, he has been living in India for the last 22 years.

After a brief career as a university lecturer, he spent ten years in solitude, first at a hermitage near Jerusalem and later in North India. Towards the end of this long retreat, he embraced Sanatana Dharma and, in 2001, received initiation into sannyasa (monastic renunciation) from his beloved and long-time spiritual Master, Sri Chandra Swami Udasin.

Two years later, he felt a call to move closer to the Ganges, and start a small monastic community to support spiritual seekers of all religious traditions. Over the following years, this initiative unfolded and ultimately became Ajatananda Ashram, an interreligious ashram dedicated to the Oneness of Reality.

Besides the teachings of his own Master, over the last thirty years Swami Atmananda has also been deeply inspired by the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Sri H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji), Sri Atmananda Krishna Menon, Swami Abhishiktananda (Henri Le Saux) and his realized disciple, Swami Ajatananda Saraswati (Marc Chaduc)—from whom the Ashram has taken its name.

Swami Atmananda Udasin teaches the Direct Path of Non-Duality according to the tradition of Advaita Vedanta. He offers regular satsangs and retreats, both in India and overseas.
