Gurukul Lifestyle

3 months duration
For Indian nationals
April 1st –June 25th
Oct 1st –Dec 25th

In 2016 Sannyasa Peeth is conducting two fully residential Gurukul Lifestyle training programs.
Following the traditional gurukul disciplines and principles of service, renunciation and compassion, the training given will focus on practical experience and application of the skills required for any balanced development in spiritual life.
Gurukul Lifestyle will be conducted in both Hindi and English medium for Indian nationals.

The environment created in gurukul life is such that the application of yoga in life happens naturally and spontaneously. Gurukul lifestyle assists one to realize the strengths and weakness of one’s own nature and brings out each person’s latent creativity. Awareness is developed of how one can use one’s skills to improve the quality of life at the personal level, family level and also at the level of human society.

The daily routine from 5.00 am to 8.00 pm is rigorous and participants will need to be physically fit and in good health. Indian nationals, both males and females between 18 and 60 years are welcome to apply.

The application form can be downloaded here in English. For further information contact Sannyasa Peeth. For a reply please enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

“The purpose of gurukul lifestyle training is to open the mind, whereas the purpose of yoga is to focus the mind. When we practise yoga we learn how to focus the mind and bring it to one point with the help of asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, and dhyana. In the gurukul process, the achievement is not to focus the mind, but rather to broaden and open the mind.

This can only happen when the individual is continually exposed to different situations and has to learn how to manage themselves and their interactions with a positive, creative and constructive state of mind. This is the lesson of Sri Swamiji’s teachings.”
