Journey to Ananda or journey to the heart of Infinite love or Bliss or True Self. That is the path of Tantra Yoga.

The word Tan (expansion) + tra (liberation) means Self-realization by expansion of the mind into the Infinite Source. The word Yoga means Union. Yoga is not merely a physical exercise. Yoga is a complete science of understanding and experiencing oneness of the body, mind and spirit. 

Ananda is the joy one experiences when one connects with the Divine inside. Upon that connection one sees that Divine light in all. This is achieved by two forms of service: service of the inside by practicing meditation and service of the outside by selflessly serving our fellow beings.

Tantra Yoga practices were what came to be formalized as Astaunga Yoga (or the eight limbs of Yoga: Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi). These practices are imparted freely in the tradition of Ananda Marga by a proper teacher, customized to each individual, worldwide. 

--

In this tradition of Ananda Marga Yoga, we meet once a week, in a  gathering called Dharma Cakra, where we sing kiirtan (chanting the name of the Divine), do meditation, followed by a potluck dinner. 

For those new to Yoga and meditation or those interested in deepening their practice, we impart instructions in the complete Yogic lifestyle including a personal meditation mantra, asanas (postures), diet, psychology and philosophy. FREE of charge (Ananda Marga Yoga strongly believes that spiritual practices should be disbursed without asking for material returns). 

If you are interested in learning meditation please feel free to message me (Sucharit) through this group. From time to time, we invite Yoga acaryas (traditional Yogic monks and nuns) that are able to impart personal meditation lessons, and share their experience and insight about these practices. 


Aum Shantih,

Sucharit
