What we're about

Welcome to SRV Associations
We are a spiritual community whose members are dedicated to living a divine life as taught and exemplified by Sri Ramakrishna, the Great Master, Sri Sarada Devi, known as the Holy Mother, and Swami Vivekananda, who brought the teachings of the Sanatana Dharma to the West in 1893.
At our SE Portland ashram we have teachings on the Upanishads every Wednesday evening, ritual worship every Saturday evening, and numerous retreats, weekend Livestream classes, and satsangs with our spiritual director Babaji Bob Kindler.
