Our world depends on humans becoming truly human: by expanding the latent powers of the mind, life force, and body for the sole purpose of propagating life for all beings. This is the path of Yoga
The Ultimate Yogic Path
The teachings of Vashi Yoga can be traced back to the origins of human spirituality that evolved from the simple observations and phenomena of Life. Vashi Yoga literally translated from Sanskrit as “ union with the controller of life”. It is the journey of discovering of who and what we truly are, marveling at the immensity and source of that potential, and focusing all of our attention on expanding that power for the benefit of all beings. At Hridaya Hermitage our intention is to share these teachings by experiencing, demonstrating, and emanating the everlasting fulfillment of embodying the full potential and power of our most precious possession; Life, through the path of Vashi Yoga.
Spirit of Ancient India
Sadhana is the practice undertaken in pursuit of a goal, literally meaning “a means of accomplishing something”. In Yoga, before any Sadhana of inner investigation is possible one’s environment must be made conducive for self-inquiry. Situated on 70 acres of pristine hardwood forests, Hridaya Hermitage offers a unique experience reminiscent of the spiritual purity and beauty of ancient India. Surrounded by the majestic Western Mountains of Maine and bordered by rushing mountain streams, our secluded temples, Yoga shalas, and shrines offer constant inspiration and a sacred environment ideal for intensifying the Sadhana of Yoga.
Masters of Yoga
Sri Bhagavan Vashi Baba and Sri Mirabai Ishwari, lineage holders of Vashi Yoga and genuine enlightened masters of Yoga, have dedicated their life to embodying their divine human potential and emanating this transformation humanity could become. Recognizing that the emanation of their intention and ultimately their transformed being is the most powerful impetus for influencing human potential on a large scale. At Hridaya Hermitage, it is our intention to embody the teachings of Bhagavan and Sri Mirabai and follow in their foot-steps to expand this emanation for human transformation. Through our devotion to the Guru and our dedicated Sadhana we seek to inspire others to join us is this greatly needed endeavor.
