The Land of Hacienda de Guru Ram Das
All of the lands of HGRD are dedicated to serving the inspiration and upliftment of all those who visit here and those who live here. The grounds are tended and beautified by the love and devotion of the grounds keepers and each sangat member. Please Note: Dogs are not allowed loose on the Ashram property.
The main complex of Hacienda de Guru Ram Das (HGRD) consists of about 20 acres of land with the entrance gates on Sombrillo Road. This land is owned by the Legacy of Yogi Bhajan Foundation (LYF), the non-profit corporation that will hold and protect these lands for our children’s children and beyond. This land houses our Gurdwara, Langar Hall, administrative offices, some housing providing living accommodations, and buildings housing many of the various community-based businesses dedicated to healing people and the planet, which are run by members of the community.
Ram Das Puri, 160 acres of land in the high desert wilderness of the Jemez Mountains, is also owned by the LYF and is the site where our annual Peace Prayer Day and Summer Solstice Sadhana celebrations are held. To learn more about Peace Prayer Day and Summer Solstice Sadhana, please visit www.3ho.org andclick on 3HO events.
The Ranch, including Guru Ram Das Estate, which is located on the Yogi Bhajan Memorial Highway, is owned by LYF was the home of the late Siri Singh Sahib Ji (Yogi Bhajan). Guru Simran Kaur is the Ranch Custodian and gives tours of the Ranch property to local or out-of-town guests by request. To schedule a tour of the Ranch please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The lands and administrative services of HGRD are all supported and paid for by contributions to the Community Growth Fund (CFG)—which pays for the areas and services that are enjoyed by all of our visitors and members and of the community and some rental income of those who live in ashram housing. HGRD has an ongoing Community Vision Project, dedicated to continuing to serve the mission of Yogi Bhajan and fulfilling his vision for these lands to serve the needs of humanity in the future. That is why he designated HGRD as the Mother Center because there will come a time when many thousands will come here for solace and healing. He told us that in the future, “First people will fly here, then they will drive here, and finally they will crawl here.”
So we are preparing ourselves for that future now. If you would like to contribute to our Community Growth Fund, you can do so online or contact the Ashram Secretary at email@example.com or by telephone at (505) 753-6341.
