Namaste and Welcome!! to our "HARI OM YOGA VIDYA SCHOOL". It is located in the heart of the sacred township of Rishikesh at the foothills of the Himalayas in the bank of river mother Ganga. Since time immemorial, the Himalayas have been the shrine for countless sages and saints. They unfolded the mystery of life within and without and passed their knowledge to their disciples. Our "HARI OM YOGA VIDYA SCHOOL" finds its roots in this ancient lineage of yogis.

The initial purpose of the school is to provide every human being with yogic wisdom for awakening the divine flame within and its goal is to facilitate the students to become masters of Yoga and meditation. The source of our knowledge of yoga can be traced to the Vedas and its following texts and traditions such as Patanjali's yoga-sutras, Swatmarama's Hatha-yoga-pradipika and Gheranda Samhita - The school doesn't hesitate to closely associate with the present traditions of Yoga and related sciences and modern science of Yoga. 

One of the meanings of the word โ€œHARIโ€ is Lord Vishnu, the second in the trinity of Lords; Brahma, Vishnu Shiva. Lord Vishnu serves as a preserving principle in the panda, the body, and the Universe. It is rightly said in an ancient saying that the body is the foremost of instruments to do and live virtuously in life; "SHARIRA ADYAM KHALU DHARMA-SADHANAM." The next word is "OM" which refers to the highest vibration or the most powerful sound. This sound elevates the levels of awareness in mind and assists the students to dissolve into Supreme Consciousness. The meaning of "YOGA" is equanimity. .  Union of body, breath mind on the manifest level. Yet beyond it refers to the state of Oneness where individual Being, individual Soul, and Supreme, limitless Soul are One. "VIDYA" Supreme knowledge.

Through the physical body, through gaining awareness of the energies that manifest in our bodies, and through the practice of tuning into OM, supreme sound; and through gaining the highest knowledge, we will aim at being able to reach the highest state of uniting with the supreme soulโ€ฆ.the Divinity that we are.

Yoga is the journey Of the self, To the self and Through the self.
