This Ashrama is a spiritual center where people of any faith or no faith might come to reflect, question, discuss, listen, pray, meditate, sing, share and/or simply serve. It is a branch of the Ramakrishna Ashrama 501(C)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization.
Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi, and Swami Vivekananda are the guardians of our Ashrama and its ancient Vedic message, "Truth is one, sages call it by many names." In reality, that Truth has no name and no form, but manifests in so many varieties of ways.
The Ramakrishna Vedanta Ashrama of Phoenix is spiritually guided by Swami Sarvadevananda of the Vedanta Society of Southern Ca., Hollywood.
Pravrajika (Wandering Sister) Akhanda-prana Mataji is the resident monastic of the Ashrama. Visiting Swamis, Pravrajikas and devotees come from time to time to share special retreats or programs. There is a broad network of Ramakrishna Vedanta work going on throughout the world, begun initially in India by the Ramakrishna Math and Mission at Belur Math, the Sarada Math and Mission at Dakshineswar and other devotee sponsored organizations (see a few links below).
