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.
Hridaya Hermitage is home of yogis dedicated to the mission to practice the power of attention on Life. Vashi Yoga practice is based on the improvement of the power of attention (Avadhana) on the three essential components of life = Consciousnesses (Awareness), Energy (Prana) and Matter (Elements). With this practice we seek to experience true fulfillment, and emanate that to all living beings.
As a community of yogis, that seek the true nature of being Human, our path is towards the achievement of the divine body - also called - The Diamond Body. Once we achieve the divine body and by living, experiencing and expressing life, we - as yogis - will be able to emanate fulfillment to all living beings. That is possible because as important cells in this world, all Human Beings have a great responsibility in the web of life. We are considered to be the nervous systems cells on this planet - it means - the ones that emanate and transmit information to other living beings. In this way, we seek to change the vibration of Humans and as a result change the actual vibration on the Planet, improving the Earth, transcending from the Age of Kali Yuga (the Age of darkness) bringing the world towards divine levels of vibration, evolving towards theAge of Satya Yuga (the Age of Truth), where goodness, love, compassion and wisdom rule the reationships between all living beings.
