Crowdfunding Project

In service of the Asharum in Níjar, we intend to create a meditative garden that represents the spiritual endeavour in Nâm.

The
Asharum
Garden

The ideal is to walk from terrace to terrace, each with its own character, all revolving around the primary focal point of the garden the Triad of Being (designed by Yoginâm), on which all the worlds of perception merge into the same source.

By engaging the spiritual endeavour into a physical environment, the meditation walk in the Asharum garden helps to bring the inner world of perception in harmony, or as Yoginâm would say: in attunement as an expression of non-being. All opinions, ideas, emotions and ideals fade in the realisation of oneness, which is the ultimate goal of a spiritual endeavour.

The Triad of Being

Where
are we
now?

At the moment the Asharum Garden is under construction. With a small group of people, we are in the midst of the creation of the Asharum. As you follow us in the monthly newsletter, every day is a new adventure. As the year has just begun, this is the period (end of the winter) when we can still plant trees for this year. With the inclusion of some more trees, within a few years, we will have some cozy sheltered spots across the garden…

Meanwhile, we are digging, chopping and shovelling, trying to enrich the soil with compost. By planting a variation of crops and herbs in a particular order we try to nourish the soil life. For the next coming years, this will be an ongoing process.

Can you help us?

We don’t need complex machinery to make it all happen, but we do need some sophisticated equipment, like a strow grinder, some extra wheelbarrows and handy gardening tools.
