Anand Gram

People come to India and typically go to big metro cities. They don't know that they are missing the real India. Karnal is the small but good historical city of King Karna (related to MAHABHARATA). The surrounding areas consist of farmland and small villages. I am able to show guests, life in the village/on the farm as well as in Karnal. India is a multi-cultural country so travelers can feel a lots of cultures in one place.

I am able to provide transportation with my car to the farm and surrounding area. Many of our friends/family live in the surrounding area you will also have time to meet other Indian families and gain knowledge about how other people live. It is up to the guest how much you want to experience ... if you want to come to the market, help prepare food, run errands, etc before or after the work on the farm I encourage you to come along for the ride!

If Guests want to go deeper in yoga, tantra, meditation or spirituality than this is the best place. As I am a healer with a background in meditation,tantra, yoga and alternative therapies I will be happy to share my knowledge with Guests.

My name is Raman and I am living in Karnal, Haryana,India. I am a Healer,Yoga/Meditation Teacher,Tantra Teacher, Reiki Grand Master. I can teach THE SCIENCE OF RELATIONSHIP as well. I also use different kinds of meditation therapies to treat psychosomatic disorders and emotional and relationship problems. My family owned apprx. 14 acre farm in a village (30 minutes) outside Karnal. The agriculture farm here consists mainly of rice paddies but on 3 acres of the land there is a fruit orchard and some organic vegetables. In this We are also doing plantation on the boundary of whole land and We are making a meditation and Healing center also. Volunteers can come here to help with organic farming orchard as well as spiritual center. I live with my family in Karnal, 120 kms from Delhi (India). and 22 km from the farm. I live in a three floor house. On the first and second floor I am able to house Volunteers and on the third floor I live with my family. Karnal is a small, clean city with many rice paddies/family owned farms nearby. Our city is also a center point to go around to other places in India. We treat Guests as my family members so you will eat, talk and enjoy life as a part of family. I really want you to enjoy, relax and soak up Indian culture!

I had the opportunity to stay at Anand Gram for 4 weeks. Raman and his family made me feel comfortable, as if you were part of the family.
Raman taught me a lot about spirituality and meditation. There was an answer to every question. I was also introduced to an Ayurvedic lifestyle, the local culture, food and so much more. Raman explains clearly and personally with patience and is engaged.
If you are open-minded and want to learn more about these subjects, this is the perfect and authentic place to do so. You can experience the natural life and work among the Fruit trees.

Staying at Annad Gram was a beautiful and authentic experience. We met many wonderful people from different countries. The work mainly consists of caring for trees. Sometimes it's harder, but you don't have to do anything beyond your strength. What else is worth knowing, learning meditation/tantra does not follow a strict schedule. Everything here is spontaneous. Raman will teach you anything you ask, but it's worth having questions prepared. The place includes yoga classes, but Raman teaches more about the spiritual side of yoga, rather than the practice of asanas, which is just as interestin

The best of this experience is that you are in touch of nature and you can have active meditation by your own.
People in town are riendly and nice.
Something that could be improved is the privacy of the volunteers and the owners, family... and it could be to stay in the bamboo hut if the volunter wishes with the minimun furniture required (a table, chair, fan) with the possibility of taking a shower and cook in the main house.
Raman is very kind and always solve the problems, his family, wife, daughters, Swati, her husband and sons are the top of the cake 👍🙌👌😘❤

Personalmente mi experiencia fue buena, aunque muchas de las razones por las que participé no se cumplieron, el proceso holístico, conexión y danza no estuvo presente.
Si estás buscando un experiencia de impacto social de ayuda comunitaria este no sería el lugar ya que es una granja privada, si tu idea es aprende sobre agricultura te lo recomiendo. El trabajo se va adaptando según las necesidades del espacio y los encargados son personas amigables.
La granja está ubicada un poco lejos pero el pueblito es lindo amigable, es un buen lugar para estar tranquilos.

Dear Franky,

Thanks for your Positive feed back. I respectfully want to let you know that if volunteers show us their interest in Holistic dance than we feel grateful to provide them holistic atmosphere. Here is so beautiful nature you can sing here you can dance here you can make a connection here with yourself.

For community and social experience volunteer should come out from their room and should meet with nearby people and villagers.
They are always ready to welcome you.

Thanks and Regards
Raman

My 2 weeks stay in Raman’s farm were nothing short than awesome. I had the opportunity to help around in many ways - planting and pruning trees, weeding and mulching around plants, etc. I got to spend this time with other travellers, cook and play games together on our free time. During my stay I had the chance to meet some of the people from the near village and had some roti lessons from them. We got a meditation session and heaps of tips to keep us improving.
I totally recommend this volunteering experience! Thank you for having us Raman.
