purAnam is one of the main vrikshams in Ritambhara. The main objective of this vriksham is to facilitate self-enquiry using the purAna as a mirror unto oneself. Through Yoga, Theater, Art, Films and Contemplative Conversations we delve into the timeless metaphors and eternal motifs of our purAnas, and help people explore how these play out in our everyday lives even today. Our offerings in this regard range from day-long workshops to week-long immersions, and include The Mahabharata Immersion, Nayika’s Quest, Ramayana Immersion, Mahabharata Within, Arjuna’s Tapas etc. While the immersions happen in Kotagiri, the shorter programs are offered all over the country a few times in a year.
What We Offer

The workshop uses films and contemplative conversations to invite reflection on one’s life journey and the existential questions that drive it. Participants engage
