Om Ham was established based on Ashram Munivara’s vision and mission, which is to help people find their true selves through holy knowledge, puja, yoga, meditation, holy song, etc. Guru Ketut Arsana was planned to build Ashram Munivara at the place where Om Ham stands today. However, because of some reasons, Ashram Munivara was built at another place which is not so far from Om Ham itself. At Ashram, people (called as Bhakta) are taught about how they should face their life now and in the future by the holy knowledge that flowed by Siwa through Guru Ketut Arsana. Based on Ashram’s vision and mission, Guru Ketut Arsana was planned to build Om Ham because not all people can go to the Ashram or want to go to Ashram.
Om Ham was built as the second way to help people in finding their true selves by serving them the Om Ham’s retreat programs, such as yoga class, meditation, healing, also a chance to have a life and spiritual consultation with Guru Ketut Arsana. Besides that, Om Ham itself also provides a healthy and organic food as well as beverage which serves in Om Ham’s restaurant. Almost all of the ingredients in Om Ham’s kitchen and restaurant are taken from our own organic garden. It is also to give a healing for the guests who are coming to Om Ham. Om Ham is identical with its Ganesha statue which stands right in the centre of Om Ham’s yard. The meaning of the Ganesha statue itself is as a symbol of life and holy knowledge which comes from Ardhanareswari (siwa and parvati).
