Meditation @ Yoga
Ashrams are not schools to teach people or students, it’s a place which contributes to a much greater course in life. Hence it is not our anticipation to provide you with teachers thus it is your individual journey, what you do, what you explore is entirely up to you as we believe one’s own self is the only true consistent teacher one can have. However if anyone requires any assistance as guidance we are more than happy to welcome you to avail yourself to our library which has a lot of journals and books on meditation. (The things what you know and the things you haven’t taught yourself yet) so this is the place for that…and this is the place likes that …..
In this ashram older (senior) members can instruct newcomers about yoga and meditation if someone required it. You can trust and be assured that these elders are knowledgeable in the relevant field. so you can learn from them and teach yourself in the ashram. Relax and follow (yourself) slowly… and gradually you can develop mindfulness, the consciousness in everything you do and eventually become the silent observer of yourself. This experience will help you inculcate your mind to be what you want to be and to achieve the ultimate goal of liberation. Refrain from conducting in a manner of imitating and copying someone as it will not help you reap the benefits you came to achieve, this is a place to relax, revise, contemplate, analyse yourself and Understand who you are ….(self-purification)
