The Lotus Room, formerly the old downstairs office, is smaller than the Skylight Room (Approx. 147 sq. feet) and is now a beautiful, open space, with lots of windows, shades and a curtain separating the room from the Stairway. It has new track lights, carpet floor, a Buddha image from Thailand on the West wall, and an initiated metal Ganesh from India placed against the East wall.
This room can fit up to 10 people comfortably and is especially suitable for quiet, meditative groups and gatherings. This is where Varadaan teaches Ayurveda classes.
