The Áshram is a place of Hindu meditation and teaching, both religious and cultural, where students live under the same roof as their teachers. It is the place where Hindus who have decided to withdraw from worldly life must live and who do not live in a fixed point, but go from ashram to ashram.
Its operation is similar to that of the monasteries in the Middle Ages, since they function at the same time as a place of retreat, a hostel, a community, a school and a public dispensary. This piece is inspired by these sites, trying to describe these sensations with music.
