About Siddhayatan


Siddhayatan is a place for you to blossom, to flourish, and be free. As an ashram, spiritual retreat center, monastery and future meditation park and pilgrimage site, Siddhayatan Tirth is dedicated to helping souls awaken, improve themselves and totally transform.
At heart, Siddhayatan offers so much, giving you a safe place to rejuvenate, rediscover, reconnect and experience the freedom to be who you really are – a freedom not often found in the world, at work, or even sometimes in your own home. By providing a spiritual, clean and simple atmosphere, the pressures of life that rest on your shoulders easily diminish and float away. Siddhayatan is a place where you can forget about the world and enter your own.
Siddhayatan is founded and based on the teachings of living enlightened master Acharya Shree Yogeesh, which are spiritual and not religious. We also share and bring to light many of the hidden Eastern teachings found in the ancient Samanic Tradition (Jain System) and Hindu culture.
Since the inception of the spiritual center in 2008, many guests have gone through amazing transformations, because they were ready. By the time they leave, whether it’s after 3 days or 7 days, there is a new-found hope in their eyes, a glow of light surrounds them, their face completely relaxed and worry-free, with a feeling of empowerment and a deeply-rooted knowing that they have found themselves. Maybe your time is now.


Mission


Siddhayatan was founded on a simple premise: anybody can change when given the access to the right tools, right environment and right guidance. The purpose and mission is to: transform lives by promoting non-violence, compassion, unity, self-improvement, health and well-being, and spiritual growth.


Universal Teachings


Nonviolence is your first step towards spirituality and enlightenment. It is the Mother of all great higher principles like love and compassion. Nonviolence, although popularly known for not harming, hurting, disturbing or killing any living being, goes beyond just action. It also includes being nonviolent in thoughts and speech. Nonviolence is the greatest principle to bring peace in this world because it means to be in oneness with every living being throughout the universe. Nonviolence promotes co-existence, which is to live and let live. Practicing nonviolence makes you a spiritual person.

Total Transformation means to change all areas of your life completely. To transform all your lower qualities into higher qualities. For example, you transform your anger (a lower quality) into unconditional love (a higher quality). Or, transforming your ego into humbleness. When one totally transforms themselves, there is no need for improvement, because they already reached their highest potential. When you totally transform your life, you can influence and impact others in a positive way

Oneness means to be one with all living beings. When you feel oneness with all you cannot hurt, harm or kill any living being, because they are an extension of you. If you hurt others, you are hurting yourself, too. There is no separation between you and anything else. When you feel oneness, you will never discriminate against another person based on who they are, and their gender, color, race, creed, orientation and culture. We all breathe the same air. We all have the same color blood. We all drink the same water. We share similar emotions and suffering. We are one.

Right Knowledge is the key to knowing who you really are and liberating yourself from pain and suffering. Right knowledge does not refer to your intellect or the understanding of scriptures or scholarly texts, or even education. Right Knowing comes from direct experience of the soul and not with information collected from your senses, nervous system or mind. Right Analysis is the method of finding truth in all aspects of life and experiences. When you use your mind 100% in the right direction with no bias, the pure mind, as a tool, can show you a little ray of light of the truth..

In order to be a spiritual and peaceful person in society, you must have the right behavior. When you conduct yourself correctly, all aspects of your life, including relationships, family, relationships, work, etc. will be positive. Right conduct will help grow spiritually because all of your actions, thoughts and speech are in complete spiritual discipline of nonviolence.
Right Conduct includes all of the following: No Alcoholic Beverages; No Drugs or Hallucinogens – Marijuana included; No Violence; No Lying; No Gambling; No Meat; No Hunting; No Prostitution

Right Analysis is the method of finding truth in all aspects of life and experiences. When you use your mind 100% in the right direction with no bias, the pure mind, as a tool, can show you a little ray of light of the truth.

An Inner Awakening is a sudden click and jolt within you that changes your reality from darkness to light. It is this inner awakening that begins your spiritual journey. Oftentimes inspiration, incident, curiosity, and intensive-seeking of the truth leads to an inner awakening. Once the inner awakening begins, you begin to do spiritual practices (sadhana) and certain disciplines to continue improving your life and advancing on the spiritual path gradually, one step at a time.
