Purifying Thoughts

"Now, the struggle to purify one's thoughts during meditation can be a hard one. People struggle with these waves upon waves of emotions and commotions arising in the mind and become very discouraged during their meditations, or about their meditations. I'll give you one bit of advice about it and that is this: You will not elimininate these waves of the mind during meditation by fighting them. If you ask me how I stop them, I will say that there is no way you can stop them. That seems very discouraging, but it is not. Really, it's not. You see, think of the ocean. You stand on the beach and you watch the ocean. Mighty waves, storms, waves, ship-tossing waves, rising and falling. Ask a child to draw a picture of the ocean and he will draw waves. That is everybody's idea of an ocean: waves and thundering sounds. But Jacques Cousteau wrote about the same ocean, and he named his book The Silent World.

The Himalayan Tradition of Yoga and Meditation

The site provides information about:

  • Studying in India and Europe to learn this meditative way of yoga
  • Becoming a Certified Yoga Teacher through our Teacher Training Program

The Himalayan tradition of yoga and meditation has remained unbroken for thousands of years; it has been passed on from master to master. It is an ancient, holistic system of physical, mental and spiritual practices.

It was brought to the West by H.H. Swami Rama and continues to this day under the spiritual guidance of Swami Veda Bharati, Dr.Lit.

This website is a source of information about the wisdom and practices of the Himalayan Yoga-Meditation Tradition for everyone interested in Yoga and Meditation and looking for classes.

The heart of yoga is meditation. Welcome to the Himalayan Yoga-Meditation Tradition!

"When people talk about yoga science, they often think it has something
to do with the physical body only. Yoga is a science that deals
with the body, breath, mind, soul—and ultimately the universe itself. It is
both practical and theoretical."
--Swami Rama of the Himalayas--
