What is an Ashram?

What is an Ashram? Ashram is a word derived from sram, meaning performing austerities / tapas or being afflicted or distressed / kheda, or be or become weary or tired, be tired of doing anything, to make effort, exert one's self, to be overcome or subdued. The “a” before the sram is negatory, lending an opposite meaning to “sram.” It has a similar meaning to “school” and also to “home,” but most accurately is literally understood in the context of a kind of highway rest stop – if the “highway” is the path, life itself, it is a stage of travel. It is in practice a residential form of Yoga, which combines living and working.
