Ananda Maya Retreat Center and Ashram in Guatemala


After one year in Guatemala, Ac. Satyamitrananda Avt. has almost finished renovating the Ananda Maya Retreat Center and Ashram. Several volunteers are already visiting the center and helping Dada with renovations, cleaning, and decorations.

The dining hall has also been renovated with new windows and ceiling. The water supply has been improved by constructing a cistern (water storage) that can hold up to 12 tons of water (12 cubic meters.) Dada is planning to have the first retreat in September 2023.

The Guatemala Jagrti has several bedrooms that Dada has been renovating in the last year.

Digging for a cistern for water storage. Water shortages are common in Guatemala City so it is essential to have our own water cistern.
