Mahakailasa Ashram

Lalitamba Mandiram



L2016CoverPromoSized4LALITAMBA was inspired by a pilgrimage through India. In early 2004, we traveled from village to village, seeking to alleviate the suffering that comes from poverty, illness, and plain loss of hope. The name “Lalitamba” means Divine Mother. In India, she is looked to as the supporter of the universe.

LALITAMBA is a journal of international writings for liberation. From page to page, you’ll find writings of saints, wanderers, prison inmates, and award-winning authors. These are the mystics of our time. They challenge us to live and to love without hesitation. Find out more at
