The Ashram

The Ashram

Kalariyil Dharmikam Ashram is a center of learning, healing, and spirituality. The teaching of Kalaripayattu, rejuvenating Kalari Chikilsa treatments, and daily spiritual rituals make this ashram a unique place. In fact, this is the only ashram with these three aspectsMartial, Medical, and Spiritual—that together emphasize tradition and authenticity.

These aspects overlap and support each other. You may wish to come for healing or for the martial arts teaching. Or perhaps you are looking for the peace and quiet that this sanctuary offers. Some guests even wish to enjoy a combination of the three. As long as your desire is to grow, this is an ideal place to visit and learn.

The teaching

Kalariyil Dharmikam Ashram

For many, many centuries, Gurus have passed down this rich spiritual heritage to their disciples. Guru Balachandran Nair, also known as Satguru Hanuman Das, is the one responsible for this preservation at the ashram. According to the traditional Guru-Shishya Parampara, the disciple takes up residence with the master. This allows him to teach Kalaripayattu and Kalari Chikilsa to the disciple in an authentic way.

Because of this authentic tradition, Kalariyil Dharmikam Ashram plays an important role in preserving India’s traditions, wisdom, and values.


The lush gardens and beautiful structures reflect the richness of the teaching. They also provide an ideal location for reflection and meditation, away from busy modern life. With comfortable rooms and delicious food, guests are able to truly enjoy the beautiful surroundings. But the central attraction is the magnificent temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman, where rituals and celebrations take place.
