The Six Branches of Integral Yoga

  • In the ancient Sanskrit language, the word “Yoga” refers to a union or yoke. In terms of both science and philosophy, it is a great depiction of Integral Yoga’s science and philosophy. Integral Yoga® is a holistic lifestyle concept that integrates the many aspects of Yoga. The goal is to aid in the harmonious development of every facet of the individual’s personality.

Raja Yoga

  • Through ethical behaviors, focus, and meditation, one can achieve mental equilibrium and control.

Bhakti Yoga

  • Through persistent love, thought, and service to the Divine, the path of devotion can be found. Bhakti Yoga is a form of meditation that anybody may practice. Everything you need is trust and a continual reminder of God
  • This is all that is required.

Karma Yoga

  • The road of action and unselfish service is the way forward. The act of serving without any connection to the rewards (or outcomes) of the deed

Jnana Yoga

  • The approach that is purely cerebral. By gaining a thorough understanding of what truly exists – that is, what is unchangeable – one who follows the path of wisdom comes to comprehend his or her Oneness with the whole Universe.

Japa Yoga

  • Japa is the repetition of a mantra, which is a sound pattern consisting of one or more syllables that reflects a particular component of the Divine Vibration. Japa is also known as chanting.

Our Company’s Founder Swami Satchidananda built the Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville, which is now known as Yogaville. He was one of the first Yoga gurus to bring the ancient Yoga tradition to the Western world, and he was hailed as a truly worldwide spiritual teacher by his students and colleagues. His peculiar teachings, which he brought with him, combine the physical discipline of Yoga with the spiritual philosophy of traditional Yoga as well as the ecumenical principles that he helped to establish.

Satchidananda Ashram Leadership

In order to increase the quality of service given to its visitors and inhabitants, Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville is administered by three boards of directors, each of which works hard to do so. More information may be found here.

Integral Yoga ®MonasticMinistry Orders

Some senior Integral Yoga students have made a formal commitment to a life of selfless service to mankind since 1975, when the practice was founded. A small number of people have opted to follow the path of sannyasa or monastic life. They are known by the title “Swami” and are comparable in appearance to monastics from other traditions. The Integral Yoga Ministry was founded in 1980 to serve other older students who had chosen to devote their lives to service but did not believe that the monastic route was the greatest fit for them at the time.

Their interfaith services, which are provided in a spirit of interfaith understanding, celebrate both the unity and variety of all peoples and spiritual approaches.

Sacred Sites

Yogaville is endowed with a number of sacred locations, including the Satchidananda Ashram, where prayer and worship services, holiday celebrations, and meditation sessions are held on a regular basis. Holy vibrations generated by all of the devotional and contemplative activity infuse the Ashram with healing energy and create an atmosphere of peace and harmony, which permeates the whole facility. Devotees, students, and spiritual seekers from all over the world come to this beautiful, tranquil setting to recharge and advance on their spiritual path.

LOTUS

  • The Light Of Truth Universal Shrine, located in Yogaville, California, was established in 1986 as a result of Swami Satchidananda’s ecumenical vision. The symbol LOTUS emphasizes the oneness that exists underneath the variety of different religions. This shrine, which is open to people of all religions to contemplate and pray at, uses the universal symbol of light as a representation of the Divine in its design. It was the first shrine created to accommodate altars for every major denomination, as well as altars for lesser-known faiths and faiths that had not yet been discovered. More detailed information, including video clips and a virtual tour, may be found on the official LOTUS website, which can be accessed at the URL LOTUS.org. Make a donation to the Lotus Foundation!

Chidambaram

  • Swami Satchidananda died on August 19, 2002, at the age of 91. His remains was interred in the Mahasamadhi Shrine in Chidambaram, as is common in Indian culture, according to old Vedic ceremonies, as is usual in the country. Following Swami Satchidananda’s instructions, the rites were done by a respected priest from the Perur Temple in his birthplace South India, in line with his intentions. In his teachings, Swami Satchidananda frequently discussed the yogic tradition, the long-lasting relationship that exists between student and teacher, and the various misconceptions that exist concerning these topics. His explanation was as follows: “The true Guru is always there with you as Spirit inside you, as Awareness.” The Consciousness that exists in you, in me, and in everyone is the exact same. It is the Guru, the one who directs your path and enlightens your mind and heart. As a result, everyone possesses the qualities of a Guru.” According to our understanding, the spiritual teacher serves as a catalyst, assisting us in accessing the wisdom that exists within us. They are a brilliant beacon of transmission of a tradition and its lessons, and their energy continues to emit even after their demise, as many visitors to Chidambaram have discovered when they come here. Chidambaram is available for prayer and meditation on a daily basis. The daily service is held every morning and includes the offering of special intentions and prayer requests.

Nataraja Shrine

  • At an idyllic hilltop site above the LOTUS Shrine and with a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance, the beautiful Lord Siva Nataraja Shrines is a must-see attraction for visitors. The site, which was dedicated in 1991 and is named after the sacred home of Lord Siva in the Himalayas, is known as “Kailash.” The Ashram was given a seven-foot-tall bronze Murti, or sacred statue, which was kindly gifted to the Ashram by Dr. Karan Singh and his wife, Princess Yasho, who are also the owners of the Ashram’s other sacred statues. Dr. Singh is the son of the last Maharaja of Kashmir and a former member of the Indian Parliament as well as a former Indian Ambassador to the United States. He is also a well-known academic and public servant in India and abroad. Dance with a blazing halo, symbolizes Pranava OM, or universal intelligence/energy, as Lord Siva Nataraja, Lord of the Cosmic Dance, moves across the cosmos. He “dances,” or rotates, every six hours for roughly ten minutes at 12 noon, 6 p.m., 12 midnight, and 6 a.m. He “dances,” or rotates, every six hours for approximately ten minutes at 12 noon, 6 p.m., 12 midnight, and 6 a.m. The Murti is completely surrounded by glass on all four sides. A lovely Lingam (the worldwide emblem of Lord Siva) lies at the foot of Lord Nataraja, surrounded by smaller Murtis of Nandishwara Deva (Sri Nandi), Sri Ganesha, Sri Subramanyam (Lord Muruga), and Sri Sivakami Mata. Additional enclosures, which house marble Murtis of Sri Ganesha, Lord Siva, Sri Krishna, and Sri Durga, are located adjacent to the main shrine (Parashakti). These hospitable idols were crafted in Jaipur, India, and erected here in 1993 to welcome visitors. Puja (Hindu ceremonial worship) is done inside the sanctum on a daily basis at around 11:45 a.m. Praadosham (Lord Siva’s particular holy day) is observed by doing Puja after sunset instead than at sunrise. The sanctuary is only open during pujas and other religious ceremonies. Please check with the Ashram for the most up-to-date information on timings and adjustments.

Guru Bhavan

  • Guru Bhavan, which was dedicated on July 16, 1989, serves as the principal meditation hall for the Ashram’s students. A meditation session is held in the center section of the grounds at 5:00 a.m., followed by another session at 6:20 a.m., both in the same location. At 12 noon, Guru Bhavan, along with LOTUS and Chidambaram, is one of three locations for quiet meditation, the other two being Lotus and Chidambaram. At 6:00 p.m. in the evening, there is a session that is held. It is also used for spiritual initiations, such as ordinations, graduations, and funeral services, as well as for other events. Along one wall of the hall are exhibit cabinets housing information and souvenirs connected to the life and service of Swami Satchidananda, including presents brought to him from students from all over the globe as well as handcrafted artifacts. Some of the numerous honors granted to Swami Satchidananda in recognition of his committed devotion to mankind are displayed on the walls towards the back of the hall.

Sivananda Hall

  • Sivananda Hall is named after Sri Swami Sivananda, who was the Guru of Sri Swami Satchidananda and who founded the organization. In the years since its dedication on March 12, 1986, the hall has been used for a variety of activities, including hosting our weekly spiritual gathering, known as “satsang,” which includes kirtan (chanting), a DVD of Swami Satchidananda, an inspiring spiritual discourse by a teacher, and closing prayers for world peace. Sivananda Hall is often used as a location for special occasions, such as weddings.

LCAF – LOTUS Center for All Faiths

“Truth is one, routes are numerous,” says Sri Swami Satchidananda, who created the LOTUS Center for World Faiths (LCAF) in 1996 to spread the LOTUS message of “Truth is one, paths are many.” In order to promote world peace and interfaith cooperation, the LCAF seeks to increase awareness of the oneness that exists underneath the variety of religious and spiritual traditions.

Founder

It wasn’t until I started creating LOTUS that I really thought about whether or not it was required. Is it necessary to spend money on this? Why can’t we use that money to help others who are in greater need? That is a question that I am frequently asked. My response is that I do not discount the necessity of providing immediate assistance to the poor, the needy, the sick, or the hungry. But why are people impoverished, ill, or hungry in the first place? The reason for this is that we don’t care or share nearly enough.

  1. What exactly should we look for if we truly wish to live in peace with one another?
  2. When we recognize the presence of the Spirit inside us, we know that we are all one.
  3. When we forget this and connect ourselves with the surface distinctions, we lose sight of the spiritual oneness that exists between all people.
  4. All religions are various routes that all lead to the same destination.
  5. That is not the same as oneness; it is the same as conversion.
  6. Should the flowers battle over their colors, smells, shapes, and forms, or should they cooperate?
  7. We appear to be appreciative of the diversity, texture, forms, and fragrances of the flowers when they are combined to form a beautiful arrangement.

True unity entails accepting all of the different viewpoints.

More people have perished in the name of God and religion than have died in all of the world’s conflicts and natural disasters combined.

So, what is the root of the problem?

We may be diverse in appearance, but we are all united by the same spirit.

When we realize that we are fundamentally one person appearing as many, all of our other difficulties will be resolved.

There is no one person or one faith that is superior or inferior to another in any way.

We should learn to live together and strive toward a common goal: to share and care for one another, to love and give to one another. Peace and joy, love and light, may the entire universe be bathed in these emotions. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti is the mantra.

Heaven On Earth: My Vision of Yogaville: Sri Swami Satchidananda: 9780932040633: Amazon.com: Books

A great collection of Sri Swami Satchidananda’s vision and direction for the development, growth, and future flowering of his model Yoga village, written in the style of his teachings. The following is taken from the introduction: The purpose of Yoga is to live a healthy, easy, peaceful, and productive life, as well as to be of service to others. The goal is to assist you in remaining calm, tranquil, and cheerful at all times, and then to be of service to others. The true spiritual experience is found in living together peacefully as one lovely family with love as a group of people.

  1. Some individuals have inquired as to why I haven’t discovered God or had any spiritual experiences.
  2. I’m not sure what kind of experience they are looking for.
  3. That is not the kind of spiritual experience I am looking for.
  4. What is the advantage to the rest of the world?
  5. The spiritual see the spirit in others, love all people, and rise beyond the lower nature that is based on egoism to attain enlightenment.
  6. You may have a regular schedule for your practice.
  7. But, if the moment you step outside, you start expressing all of your bad emotions to others, what is the point?

Keep an eye out for any signs of antagonism, backbiting, dislikes, or hatred.

The application of your religious beliefs in everyday life is what Yoga is all about in the real world.

Following the principals of yoga, we strive to live as a good community of Yogis in accordance with our values.

As long as we are unable to make this small planet a joyful and harmonious place to live, there is no use in talking about global harmony or global peace.

We must never lose sight of the fact that my goal in coming here is to create Yogaville a paradise, nothing less and nothing more.

Everything should be heavenly, heavenly, and much more wonderful than that.

Please keep this in mind and put out your best effort.

We can always make it if we put our minds to it, and God is always willing to provide a hand.

He will come 10 steps closer to us if we only take one step in the direction of our objective.

Make certain that your life makes a significant contribution to this goal.

I have a responsibility.

I intend to do all in my power.

I’ll just say, “I’m sorry, but I’m not quite ready for this.” I’ll return when I’m ready to do so again.

You are not only doing something for the benefit of yourself.

We’re all in this together.

We came from different locations, we have different interests, temperaments, and religious views, yet we are all living together as a family in this spot. When I go throughout the world, I tell people that if they want to see heaven, they should come to Yogaville.

World Science Day for Peace and Development

World Science Day for Peace and Development is observed on the 10th of November every year to draw attention to the important role that science plays in society and the importance of engaging the general people in debates about developing scientific concerns. Moreover, it demonstrates the significance and usefulness of science in our everyday lives. The goal of World Science Day for Peace and Development is to strengthen the connection between science and society, so ensuring that citizens are constantly informed about scientific achievements.

In order to accomplish the goals of the Day, participants must:

  • Increasing public understanding of the importance of science in promoting peaceful and sustainable communities is a priority. Encourage national and worldwide solidarity in the pursuit of knowledge that is shared by countries
  • Make a renewed commitment at the national and international level to the use of science for the benefit of society
  • Draw attention to the difficulties that science has in obtaining public support for its research

Science for Peace and Development Day provides a chance to organize all players around the theme of science for peace and development – from government officials to members of the media to schoolchildren. It is strongly encouraged by UNESCO that everyone participate in World Science Day for Peace and Development by organizing their own event or activity on the day in question.

2021 Theme: Building Climate-Ready Communities

Every stakeholder – from government officials to the media to schoolchildren – may be mobilized around the issue of science for peace and development on World Science Day. UNESCO highly urges everyone to participate in World Science Day for Peace and Development by organizing your own event or activity on the day in honor of the occasion.

Virtual Event: Building climate-ready communities

The webinar will be primarily concerned with climate change and its consequences for human communities all over the world. In order to demonstrate the efforts of UNESCO and some of its important partners in developing answers to some of the issues that human communities confront in adapting to climate change, the objective of this exhibition is to display their work.

Background

In 1999, the World Conference on Research in Budapest produced a number of beneficial effects, one of which was the organizing of a concentrated event on the importance of devotion to science and society. Organizers saw it as a chance to reaffirm each year the commitment to achieving the goals announced in theDeclaration on Science and the Use of Scientific Knowledge, as well as to implementing the recommendations of the Science Agenda: Framework for Action document. Since its establishment by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2001, World Science Day for Peace and Development has resulted in several actual initiatives, programs, and financing for science across the world.

The motivation for commemorating World Science Day for Peace and Development is rooted in the relevance of science and scientists in creating sustainable societies, as well as the necessity of informing and involving citizens in scientific research and development.

A enterprise of this nature also contributes to the worldwide search for peace and development by providing a distinctive point of view.

Several partners were involved in the celebration, including government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), UNESCO National Commissions, scientific and research institutions (including universities and research institutes), professional associations (including scientific societies), the media, science teachers, and schools.

Poster

Improvements in living standards and increased production have been attributed to science and technology, which is indisputable. Because of the tremendous growth in technology in recent years, computers are rapidly intruding on sectors that were previously thought to be purely human spheres of activity.

The video area of our Facebook page will be used to record and preserve selected programs, which will be made available for free to our fans. Match the Generosity with your own. We got a $10K donation from a kind person to assist with the final costs of the solar panels and the roof construction. Is it possible for us as a community to equal this generosity?

All contributions, no matter how small, are gratefully welcomed. The $10K match will assist IYI in reaching its objective of completely financing the solar panels, as well as contributing to the cash required to replace the existing roof.
