The elaborate Yoga programs of Ananda Marga are dedicated to the cause of the revival of the 7000 years old original tradition of Yoga systemized by Lord Shiva at the higher peaks of the Himalayas. Thus, accordingly our motto is based on the ideals of guiding humanity on to the path of “Self Realization and Service to Humanity.” Self-Realization is achieved by meditating on the Supreme Consciousness called SADHANA.
Rendering Selfless Service to the needy purifies the mind of the spiritual aspirant.
These pave way for all round progress providing positive environs to our fellow human beings, animals, plants and the non-living creation.
We offer yoga as a comprehensive way of (spiritual) lifestyle training to individuals and communities that include lessons in meditation, ásanas (yoga postures) tailored to individual needs, vegetarianism, social service, and a holistic approach to life.
