Siddha Yoga is a path of inner transformation and discipline. It is imbued with the grace of the Siddha Yoga Guru Gurumayi Chidvilasananda. As a meditation master and the spiritual head of the Siddha Yoga path, Gurumayi guides students in their spiritual practice and study.
Spiritual practice on the Siddha Yoga path begins with initiation, shaktipat diksha. Through active and focused engagement with the Siddha Yoga teachings and practices students are able to experience and live in the awareness of the Self.
The Siddha Yoga masterís grace and the studentís steady effort are essential components for students to realise the divinity within themselves and the world they live in.
Siddhayogis around the world perform the practices and study the teachings in Siddha Yoga meditation centres and ashrams, in chanting and meditation groups, and in their homes. There are learning and teaching events and retreats as well as sadhana support tools available to aid seekers in their journey.
Siddha Yoga philanthropic expressions, created by Gurumayi, include The PRASAD Project and the Muktabodha Indological Research Institue, both of which have offices in Maharashtra, India. The PRASAD Project provides health, education and sustainable development programs for children, families, and communities in need. The Muktabodha Indological Research Institute preserves the Indian scriptures and ancient Vedic traditions.
The first Siddha Yoga Ashram, Gurudev Siddha Peeth located in the Tansa Valley of Maharashtra, India, is a spiritual retreat site for dedicated Siddha Yoga students who wish to participate in retreats and serve the Siddha Yoga mission.
