For those who want to dedicate themselves entirely to the spiritual path, we offer a full-time dedication program. Karma yoga, or “selfless service,” is an integral part of this program.
What is the duration of the program?
Each aspirant can join the volunteer program for the period of time that he or she considers appropriate. There are those who join for a week, others for a month or a year, and there are those who decide to spend the rest of their lives in the mission.
What is karma yoga?
Karma yoga, or “selfless service”, is one of the main paths of yoga. When we offer service to others, our hearts get purified and our negative qualities such as selfishness, hatred, jealousy, pride, and others, start to vanish. Karma yoga magically annihilates the false sense of separation. Hence, it stimulates the development of qualities such as humility, love, acceptance, compassion, tolerance, and mercy. When perceiving the unity behind the diversity, the perspective of life changes, until the knowledge of the Self is revealed.
The ashram is an ideal environment to practice the path of yoga. With the guidance of the spiritual master, surrounded by souls with similar aspirations, you can delve into all aspects of yoga practice, open the heart, develop new skills, and be inspired by the hills, forests and streams, as well as the variety of programs offered by the ashram.
This program of complete dedication is full-time throughout its duration and is based on the ancient system of gurukula. With the exception of the practice of hatha yoga, meditation, prayer, and study, most of the day is dedicated to karma yoga. The organization's volunteers work without earning money, or obtaining any kind of selfish material benefit. Karma yoga is a means for internal purification and spiritual development.
Who can participate?
Anyone who is willing to serve and wants to conduct a yogic life is welcome to volunteer for the Vimukti Yoga Mission's Volunteer Program.
The program is open to all levels, including beginners on the path of yoga. The majority of full-time volunteers are members of our congregation, students, devotees, followers, and karma yogis (volunteers).
How much does the program cost?
The program is free of charge for those who choose full-time dedication.
