Young Siddha Yogis Practicing the Siddha Yoga Teachings
Shree Muktananda Ashram

Learning and Serving

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.

As I scroll through these photos, I experience a profound sense of familiarity and belonging. Some of the feeling, I know, is due to memories of my family’s visits to Shree Muktananda Ashram and the tremendous love and transformation we experienced there. And there is also a dimension of the feeling which is timeless, as if I've know each person in the photographs for a long time. I experience a deep love for everyone.

I love the photo of Gurumayi holding the baby where they are both looking at each other. It feels like, in that moment, love is recognizing love.
