Vacationers looking to get away from it all – literally and figuratively – can now book time at Gandhi’s first ashram.

For about 15 dollars a day, guests can stay at his retreat near Ahmedabad.

The site is where Gandhi lived for several years and formed many of the ideas that would shape his life and his philosophy.

The stay offers an opportunity to eschew the burdens of material possessions and modern conveniences and experience Mahatma’s virtue.

Simplicity, however, often isn’t that simple, and the stay doesn’t promise much in the way of relaxation.

Living like Gandhi involves pursuing a completely self-reliant and sustainable life including spinning one’s own cloth for clothing.

Guests are urged to rise at 5 am and spend the day engaged in hard work, meditation, and sourcing local goods.

Visitors are asked to leave their foreign-produced products at home.

Actually, as guests are expected to live by Mahatma’s 11 rules for living, one of which is not owning things, leaving everything at home is advised.

Spare luggage for souvenir stowing isn’t needed either as, if everything goes as planned, all you’ll be taking back with you is inner peace.
