Ashram Yoga Divine Center
The objective of Ashram Yoga Divine Center is to receive those seekers of Truth that wish to be close to Satyavan. It is a place where seekers can deepen their spiritual practice, and so surrender completely to the Source, look for the dissolution of everything that you are not, and achieve the Supreme Realization, discover who/what you really are.
The process of spiritual awakening is a process of purification, and the practice of Seva is key in this process. Seva is selfless and devotional service. Selfless, because one takes others' interest more importantly than own interests. Selfless service purifies the heart and cleans the mind. Seva makes your heart larger, generous, full of universal love. With Seva you can look for real humility. Seva is a path to Realization.
However, for a service to be really Seva, besides selfless, must also be devotional. Devotion (an important and frequently underestimated factor) transforms every action in an act of love and donation to something much greater than oneself. Devotion allows for the total surrender to the Source, to the Guru, thus he represents the Guiding Light, a mirror that reflects the internal guru that each of us has deep inside.
The Ashram is a place for the seeker to become totally vulnerable and surrender completely to Satyavan, putting one's own energy at complete disposal of the Guru mission and higher purposes. This proximity, and the emptying of personal interests allow for Satyavan to create the adequate conditions to awaken the dormant spiritual force of the seeker. Seekers of Truth will have access to the Source, since the Guru is the Source -- until the point when the seeker finds his own internal guru, and then he is able to be his own Source...
Whoever comes for Seva in the Ashram, comes to serve, to donate, to surrender, to be close to Satyavan, because his heart already knows that this proximity will allow for the spiritual journey to intensify. Whoever stays doing Seva in the Ashram Yoga Divine Center, is because has developed a deep affinity with Satyavan, and so is able to reach the dedication and surrender necessary to the process.
Here in the AYDC, seekers of Truth engaged in a serious spiritual practice find an adequate environment to deepen the journey: modest facilities, simple and nutritious food, activities and routine that favor silence and introspection. A simple life serving the higher purpose of seeking for Realization, Truth, Plenitude, Freedom.
