Serving and studying in Gurudev Siddha Peeth is an opportunity of great merit and worth. As the first ashram of the Siddha Yoga path, Gurudev Siddha Peeth holds incredible spiritual energy. It serves as a model spiritual environment for the Siddha Yoga Sangham.
For Long-Term Gurukula Students in Gurudev Siddha Peeth, the ashram daily schedule is the foundation for study and practice. Through focused and disciplined engagement with the ashram daily schedule, Gurukula students continually invigorate the ashram environment and strengthen their sadhana.
