Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our activities are limited by the number of qualified teachers (Acharyas) we can train. Membership in our Order is on an invitation basis only. We only invite persons to begin training after many years of regular practice, and who are financially self-sufficient, with good communication skills, and demonstrated capacity for selfless service in the field of Yoga and meditation. We send members of our Order to countries where there is a need. We currently have members of our Order living in a dozen countries, and teaching in 20. We plan to offer at least 120 seminars per year around the world

We have an Acharya training program, and teaching Standard documentation for giving our seminars.

Experienced Acharyas train candidates who are preparing to become member Acharyas.

The Order pays for the travel expenses of Acharyas who teach seminars that are sponsored by the Order. It also gives them a modest honorarium for their service.

Here is one video interview which was recently added to our website in English, French and German.

During the coming 2 months we expect to add it in all 20 languages of our website

We are currently 29 member Acharya teachers

We have a network of volunteers in 20 countries who help to organize our seminars and classes.

We publish books on Classical Yoga and Indian philosophy in 17 languages.

Our website is in 20 languages, with many pages in each one.

Our more than 100 publications and website attract many persons to the seminars offered by our Acharya teachers.

The Order supports a publishing office and Yoga center in Bangalore, India which organizes seminars throughout that country

During the last 12 months, the number of seminars given by members of the Order declined by about 40% because of restrictions on meeting during the pandemic. As these are restrictions are relaxed with the arrival of a vaccine we expect to be able to meet our goal of at least 120 seminars in 15 to 20 countries per year.

All of the 4 candidates in training to become members have progressed according meeting our requirements, and should be able to complete it within the next 12 months.
