Caution: Fraudulent Website
This is to caution all the devotees of Gurudev that some fraudsters have launched a website impersonating the official website of The Divine Life Society, in order to mislead the public and collect money in the name of booking rooms, joining Yoga Courses, etc. Devotees are advised to beware of the fake website with the address https://sivanandaashram.co.in/, email Id firstname.lastname@example.org & phone number 9668461538 and take necessary precautions from falling prey to such scammers.

Those who are devoted to the Ashram and Gurudev know very well that the Ashram does not charge anything for any Seva at the Ashram. Please take note that the official websites of The Divine Life Society are https://www.sivanandaonline.org and https://www.dlshq.org, email Ids are email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org and the online donation portal is https://donations.sivanandaonline.org
