Young Siddha Yogis Practicing the Siddha Yoga Teachings
Shree Muktananda Ashram

Families from around the world visit Shree Muktananda Ashram to offer seva in support of the SYDA Foundation. While staying in the Ashram with their families, children and young adults learn about the Siddha Yoga teachings and practices, including chanting, meditation, seva, dakshina, and hatha yoga. They often listen to stories from the scriptures of India and express these stories in creative play. They also share what they have learned through art and musical activities. The children enjoy offering seva, such as baking cookies and gardening. The young adults often offer seva supporting the younger children to learn and serve, along with learning skills in SYDA Foundation departments, such as multimedia and music.

This gallery shows some of the many ways that young Siddha Yogis learn about and experience the Siddha Yoga teachings.

In each of these beautiful photos, unity is made visible. I see everyone's inner focus and feel that they are all gently bowing to the same One Heart, while the array of their outer movements and expressions harmoniously complement each other.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for all the ways you help me to learn about love and respect.

What a joy it is to see the children in these photos! I feel great comfort knowing that Gurumayi makes the Siddha Yoga teachings available and understandable to young people, who will have the teachings to guide them through this world. When I look at the images of the children, I see the freedom in their bodies and the joy on their faces. What a great way to go through life, starting from such a young age!
