EXPERIENCE THE NATURE IN YOU
TYOGA is happy in welcoming students from around the world to its traditional gurukulam. The gurukulam is an exceptionally traditional place of learning and communal living in the 21st-century in an Indian rural setting.
TYOGA looks at all people as brothers and sisters on a journey of spirituality and to accomplish one's goals in life.
In these uncertain times, we want to reassure you that TYOGA is looking forward to welcoming new and continuing students in September 2020.
TYOGA is an experience into your natural self, to have an opportunity and an experience. The intent of this center is to provide participants to have experience within a spiritual environment and being involved. It is a place where various activities are encouraged taught and shown to learn and experience so that you have an opportunity to make it a part of your lifestyle.
Here is a great opportunity to experience for yourself.
Every living being longs to be perpetually happy, without any misery. Since in everyone the highest love is alone felt for oneself and since happiness alone is the cause of love, in order to attain that happiness, which is one’s real nature and which is experienced daily in the mindless state of a deep sleep, it is necessary to know oneself. To achieve that, enquiry in the form ‘Who am I?’ is the foremost means.
TYOGA is a spiritual community that continues to provide experiences in spiritual practices and encouraging a lifestyle that meets the purpose of life for each and every one.
Our Introduction provides an opportunity for personal exploration and growth in a supportive spiritual community. Participants will be introduced to the different forms of experiences which also include asanas, chanting, and simply silence to follow meditation. One will have the experience to practically apply in everyday life and into a lifestyle that brings positive benefits to the participants.
Whether you know what you want to do or have no idea, come and speak to us when you begin your practice with us.
The initiative, called ‘Destination India’, is seeking to streamline the process of foreign admissions in a bid to project India as a hub of education.
Short-term courses in yoga will form the pivot of the new government's push to attract more foreign students to India.
Destination India’ will involve cooperation from multiple government bodies, including the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), which spearheads India’s cultural global outreach, and the ministries of human resource development [HRD], health, external affairs, and home affairs, multiple sources. The roadmap, will include making visa procedures simpler, sprucing up facilities in host institutions, marketing Indian universities in target countries, and signing international agreements with institutions and universities abroad.
TYOGA sets its roots of Cittar Yogam at Chidambaram. This is our International center where students can come and practice in the gurukulam method of studying and practicing as it has been for so many 1000’s of years.
Through the years in the future, TYOGA’s position is to develop its center at Chidambaram for all our students a spiritual and yogic practice in a rural environment within the boundaries of the spiritual atmosphere of Chidambaram where yoga was practiced by great saints and where it all happened.
International students who come to TYOGA will see and experience a different phase of life –how a yogic lifestyle must be. This experience will give much thought and development for the individual.
The chief aim of this monastic lifestyle for International students is a detoxifying activity to bring all systems to its natural self. In doing so the chief aim is to educate through the Cittar practices all-round development of the person’s personality. This includes his physical, mental, moral, and intellectual development. The other aims are to make a free man, a wise, intelligent, moral, non-violent, and secular.
The two basic kinds of monasticism we follow are eremitic (a hermit lifestyle) and cenobitic (a communal lifestyle). Both types have variations and can be practiced according to the mindset of the individual. All students will follow the cenobitic lifestyle. For those who go into the deeper practice and get into Kundalini Awakening will follow the eremitic lifestyle.
The gurukulam experience in imparting learning to the students in a natural surrounding where the student lived with each other with brotherhood, humanity, love, and discipline. The essential teachings were in yoga. Not only this, but the focus was also given on arts, sports, crafts, singing that developed their intelligence and critical thinking. Activities such as yoga, meditation, mantra chanting, etc generated positivity and peace of mind and made students be fit. It was also mandatory to do daily chores to motive simplicity and to impart practical skills. All these helped in personality development and increased confidence, sense of discipline, intellect, and mindfulness which is necessary even today to face the world that lay ahead.
While the gurukulam tradition of education flourished in ancient India but in the advent of the modern era, it was almost wiped out from the Indian subcontinent today – both in general and especially in the field of Yoga. Historical reasons, particularly loss of patronage from Hindu kings to the gurukulams, and the socio-political instability during the Islamic and British control, made the atmosphere in India inhospitable to intellectually develop young people and pass on the teachings.
The gurukulam model of education offers students a rare opportunity to learn in an oral tradition of knowledge that has been carefully preserved and passed down in its purest possible form through many generations. The ancient long lineage of healers and teachers lends an unparalleled authenticity to the experience of learning Citta Yogam, Citta, and Civa Ciddantam that cannot be found in any other modern institution or book. It is facilitating a paradigm shift in enlivening the traditional elements of the spiritual self and community evolution of consciousness through the study of the scriptures with a teacher, experiential learning and personal healing, action for community welfare and spirit of selfless service to humanity. In this way, human beings have the ability and opportunity to self-transform and reconnect to a deeper spiritual process of personal healing, evolution of consciousness, and activating potential for global social transformation in this modern era.
TYOGA has developed such an environment for the development of Citta Yogam teachings and practices.
