The Beetles Ashram today is an abandoned structure at the extreme end of the Swarg Ashram area - about a kilometer's easy walk from Parmarth Niketan or Vanaprasth Ashram. Other than the fact that you are walking around the place where the Beetle came for solace - to participate in advanced Transcendental Meditation under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in February 1968,[riddled with it's own controversies] this place has only the Murals - Artxpan - that blew my mind.
The murals really add a contemporary meditative quality and context to this hall - without being literal or historic. Done with amazing skill, loved the choice of size, scale, colour and placement of the art pieces that I'm sure will be appreciated by one and all whether or not you are familiar with The Beetles' work! Kudos to the mural artist and the forces that are allowing such interpretations to take place in our art and cultural scene. Worth a visit just for this!
Carry your earphones and own Beetles' music while you walk around. We sang aloud to the lyrics [on a wall] of 'Jai Guru Deva'. Carry water too though you will find piping hot Maggi, basic snacks and water & shakes at a small canteen [not to be confused with the Beetle/Delmar cafe - that is near the Laxman Jhoola]. There is also a washroom.
