Lineage

The Himalayan Mountains have been the home of sages for millennia. These great sages have lived and passed on knowledge of the yogic teachings to disciples who then became masters passing on the teachings in an unbroken lineage since the Vedic period. Twelve hundred years ago Shankaracharya organized his teaching into five centers of the Himalayan Tradition. As one of those five, our tradition is the Bharati lineage.

Ashram

srsg

Built like a beautiful meditation hill village, Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) was established by Swami Veda Bharati in 2002. Sadhaka means “spiritual seeker” and Grama means “village” in the sanskrit language – thus we are “A village of spiritual seekers devoted to the teachings of Swami Rama of the Himalayas.” Sadhakas from all spiritual traditions and from all walks of life are welcome at SRSG for learning yoga meditation. Every sadhaka arriving at the ashram receives personal instructions and the program is tailored according to the length of time one chooses to stay. You may come anytime during the year; come alone or with family and friends.

Transformation

srsg

Our Gurudeva, Swami Rama, has said that “For a genuine and everlasting transformation, one must practice a systematic method of self-discipline and self-training. Mere philosophy and intellectual knowledge cannot stand in time of need, if one does not know how to use the essentials of that philosophy in one’s daily life. Applying theoretical knowledge and living with it in daily life is called practice.” The Himalayan tradition of dhyana-yoga does not merely provide the technique for meditation but teaches the methods whereby one’s meditation practice may be applied to cultivate, enhance, beautify one’s personality, leading to very practical benefits in personal, interpersonal and work life.
