Ashram means a hermitage, monastic community, or place of spiritual practice and retreat.

Ashram Munivara is part of a number of Jnana Buda Siwa Ashrams in Indonesia. A place of worship for locals and foreigners where we practice tantra, yantra and mantra as a way to come to the Supreme Lord (Shiva).

Doing Puja, spiritual dance, meditation, fasting, chanting, Yoga and so on are all forms of tantra that help to enhance positive energy. The spiritual practices, taught by the Guru of Ashram Munivara, Sri Jaya Sakti (Sri Guru), are based on Universal teachings of Lord Shiva. These teachings have been passed down through the spiritual lineage to him from Sri Jaya Nara. (Guru to Guru / Param-Param).

The activities at Ashram Munivara include daily yoga, weekly puja and guided asrham programs such as walking meditation and recitation of the Maha Mantra ‘Om Namah Shiva Ya’.


In general, the knowledge of Buda is the knowledge that comes from within and the knowledge of Shiva is how to materialise the spiritual knowledge into Yadnya.

Basically this means:
Buda Siwa knowledge is known as JNANA BUDA SIWA. The word Buda is God within oneself which is called Atman while the meaning of Siwa is God without.

Someone who has firm and determined Bhakti is fully aware of the Atman within themselves so the Holy knowledge will grow within. This Holy knowledge affects the mind where all brilliant ideas grow and are realised as Yadnya.


Ashram Munivara is located in the Yoga Centre of Bali. Ubud has become a mecca for yoga people and a centre of traditional art and culture. Ashram Munivara is set in a village called Junjungan, around 7km from the main Ubud centre. The Ashram was founded in 2016 by Sri Jaya Sakti (Ketut Arsana).
