Who are we? The Science of Identity teaches the science of yoga, the science of identity, from the yoga/Vedic (Hindu) viewpoint or tradition, which answers the questions: “Who am I?” “What is the purpose of life?” “Where can happiness be found? ”
According to Veda and yoga, the perfection of life and of yoga is the achievement of pure bhakti (spiritual love). Yoga is not something one can join or quit, but is rather the eternal truth (sanatana dharma) of our identity. Yoga is an individual (rather than a team) pursuit or endeavor. While the association of like-minded seekers is encouraged, the concept of being “saved” by joining an institution or church is foreign (and alien) to the Vedic or yoga system. Will this conflict with my Religion? Regardless of your spiritual path, we celebrate the one common thread... We are spiritual in essence...not matter. Our bodies are the vehicle that gets us around. Religion means to re-link with the Supreme. We respect whatever methodology works for you and we will share what connects us for your consideration. Is it a pot luck dinner? Nope! It's complimentary:) Just bring "you"... the chef has had restaurants and has "food safe"so everyone is in good hands!
