Bairagi is one of many “themed” gardens at Raga Svara. Located near Bodhi, the meditation centre, Bairagi has many shade loving plants and shrubs under the canopy of old coconut trees. It is a beautiful place to walk through and reflect.
The presence of the national tree of India – Banyan tree at Raga Svara, makes our campus more beautiful. Banyan tree is an important part of Hindu religion also and has ayurvedic importance as it is beneficial in many skin diseases, lipid disorders, etc. Due to its dense shadow and different structure than other trees, Raagis like to sit under this tree to relax and get peace. Banyan tree is known as ‘Bargad’ in Hindi, ‘Vad’ in Gujarati & ‘Nyagrodh’ in Sanskrit.
Ekayana – The Zen Garden is another peaceful place at Raga Svara surrounded by nature. One can heal, meditate and relax at this garden. Ekayana’s landscape consists of carefully composed arrangements of rocks, trees and bushes. Raagis can rake white sand or gravel here which represents the ripples of water. This mindful physical activity provides peace and calm.
