About Us

Ryshivana is one of the Spirituality institutes of the Karnataka-Goa Province of the Order of Discalced Carmelites (OCD). The Carmelite Charism is to espouse spiritual life and contemplation in the Church based on the teachings of Sts. Teresa of Avila, John of the cross, Therese of Lisieux, Edith Stein, Elizabeth of the Trinity and many others, three of whom have been proclaimed by the Church as the Doctors of Spiritual Life and Prayer.

The main purpose of this institute is to promote THE ART OF INNER SILENCE AND CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER. All our activities, programmes and the very atmosphere here are meant to promote spiritual life through a lived-in religious experience and quality academic enlightenment.
Ryshivana, a centre for inner silence and contemplation was inaugurated in the year 2006. It’s a place for those who seek deep solitude and union with the Beloved.

“Ryshivana” as the name suggests is a garden or an abode of the seeker. “Ryshi” in Sanskrit means an ascetic of ancient times who lived in silence, solitude and contemplation. However, here we use “Ryshi” as an acronym for Religion, Yoga, Spirituality, Health, and Institute. “Vana” means garden or wooded area, a place conductive for prayer meditation and contemplation, i.e., God experience. Ryshivana also promotes and fosters the integral growth and transformation of human person, his/her Religious Consciousness
