          We have a policy that everyone that come to the ashram need too has passed at least our 2nd level course and to stay for longer time you need to have passed the 4th level (advanced) course. Sometimes it is scheduled a course in the ashram so then you can come there direct and stay for a shorter while some time after. Otherwise you find all our courses in our schedule:

  7. Dear Surajit, Namasté,

    Thank you for your interest. Sunyoga is a way to get self-solutions in all domains of life, physical health, psychological, economical, philosophical, spiritual.

    An important part of Sunyoga teaching is about surrendering and about not expecting. Each of us is unique. Everything, provided we regularly practice Sun meditation and follow Sunyoga teachings in the proper manner, can be cured, without expectations, surrendering to the outcome. Sometimes other parts of the body, mind or spirit need to be priorly healed. Universe consciousness knows.

    I would recommend reading Sunyogi books. In “Essence of Sunyoga”, it is mentioned numerous people have improved their eyesight. Definitely Sunyoga helps in curing and healing many diseases if not all. AgniHotra practice would also be of help. Please advise where you live exactly so we can direct you to a certified Sunyoga teacher in your area.

    Email address for future correspondence:

    Wishing you peace, prosperity, good health, wisdom, unconditional love and enlightenment.
