Ekanta Vasa – Living Alone In Hinduism

Ekanta Vasa means living alone by oneself and is an important aspect of Hinduism. This is recommended for serious meditation. Yogis exercise not only for physical well-being but for spiritual development also. This requires a concentration which is possible only in ekanta (solitude). Atma chintana and God-realization or any serious achievement, can be attained only by single-minded devotion. That is why sages and vanaprasthins are required to spend their time in japa (meditation) and tapa (penance) in seclusion. Ekanta Vasa is recommended for all serious efforts towards union of self with the Supreme Spirit. An ekanta vasin has no caste or village, as he is only an aspirant.

Ekanta Vasin is a virakta, one who has grown indifferent to the world’s lure. Sannyasins, mathadhipatis and ekangins (brahmacharins) are expected to spend some time in ekanta vasa. Avad
