The Mission of Hridaya
Human beings have one true purpose: to experience and emanate fulfillment for the benefit of all beings.
The mission of Hridaya is to practice, live, emanate and offer this true purpose so a fulfilled life and an end to suffering can be possible for all.
Yoga is the path to identifying and becoming this.
In 1989, Bhagavan Vashi Baba established Hridaya Hermitage, a traditional Yogic Hermitage dedicated to reaching Humanity's ultimate potential. Through Bhagavan’s compassion he has offered this sanctuary to serious aspirants of Yoga.
Currently the Hermitage has 28 Yogis, dedicated disciples who practice Vashi Yoga under the guidance of Bhagavan and Mirabai, Bhagavans top disciple and wife, the "Amma" (mother) of the Hermitage.There are some Yogis who live and practice the teachings outside the Hermitage, and 100's of guests each year who journey to discover how ultimate fulfillment is our natural state and that reaching that can benefit all beings.
Situated on 100 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 New Vineyard Mountains and bordered by rushing mountain streams, our secluded foot paths wind through the Hermitage's many temples and shrines.
