- The word āshram (also āshrama, spelled आश्रम in Sansrit) comes from the Sanskrit root srama (श्रम) which means "to toil", the "ā" prefix indicates the negative, therefore āshram means "not to toil."

- It is a shelter or place where the body, mind, heart and soul do not toil but relax by connecting with the Source.

- Lao Tse has captured the āshram spirit when he wrote “The Master reaches everywhere without traveling, sees clearly without looking, accomplishes much without doing anything” [Tao te Ching 47].

- The path to this shelter is normally provided by the guidance of a guru or teacher. It has been said from time immemorial that when the student is ready, the teacher appears.

- The teacher’s higher vibrations and spiritual frequencies empower the student to acquire the habits or discipline required to connect with the Source – The Shelter of Glory or Moimāshram.

- St. Joseph’s Workshop at Moimāshram is a workshop with a difference where truth, trust and relationships are effortlessly connected with wholeness.

- Wholeness, represented by mandalas of Infinity, Intimacy and Integrity In-harmony with Impermanence, is Innocence. One realizes innocence by awakening, balancing or centering delight in Imperfection as Perfection [PFM Mirror 318  The 7 "P" Gospels].

- A mandala is represented by a circle or a center and stands for wholeness [God's Church of Universal Delight]; the cosmos in miniature, a map of consciousness, a reflection of the soul; an instrument to unfold in a limited way the enfolded illimitable power [PFM Mirrors 177-185].

Moima in Konkani, the language of the Konkan region of India, or Ooteesh-bokh-ta in Aramaic, the language of Jesus of Nazareth, is usually translated as glory or delight in life-giving connection with passionate illumination leading to mystical union : Glory in Heaven and Peace on Earth .

- The term 'glory' just does not quite evoke the deeper meaning of the kind of song that penetrates the very soul. A fire whose never-ending, regenerative and life-giving mysteries are simply astonishing. This is a phrase of passionate illumination, an orgasmic realization of God’s reality and presence coursing through our very bodies." Jon Marc Hammer in The Mystical Lord's Prayer (2000).
