Location

Since the beginning of times, the Himalayas are known as the cradle of Vedic and Yogic civilizations.

The aura of the Himalayan peaks and their wild yet peaceful natural beauty, reflected in their grandeur and mysticism, enthralled and intrigued the yogis, mystics, Tapaswis, scholars, and ascetics from distinct traditions and schools.

Great exponents like Shri Chandracharya of the Udasin Lineage, Shankaracharya of the Advaita Vedanta, Gautama the Buddha, Mahavatar Baba of Kriya Yoga, and many others walked the same path and sought refuge in the mighty yet subtle, stubborn yet transformational, rough yet compassionate embrace of the benevolent Himalayas.
