We are engaged in promotion of integrated ‘Sankhya-Yog’ philosophy among the spiritual seekers. Our objective is to make this complex and hidden treasures available to all aspirants in a simplified way to understand Sankhya Yoga as something beyond the ‘Assanas’ (Physical postures). The founder of Sankhya philosophy was sage Kapila (born c. 3000 BCE.) and is referred as the ‘first psychologist’ and ‘Father of Cosmology’ in the history of mankind. The Sankhya theory explains the depth of Yoga and provides a clear map to transcendent our Physical, Mental and Psychological limitations. Due to importance of samkya in spiritual life the most important chapter of Bhagwatgita is called ‘Samkhya-yog’. We organize Yoga training programs, seminars and trips to sacred places to highlight the glorious spiritual past of India and engage youths in conservation of rivers and other natural resources through meaningful pilgrimages.

Samkhya or Sankhya (Sanskrit: सांख्य, IAST: sāṃkhya) is one of the six āstika schools of Hindu philosophy. It is most related to the Yoga school of Hinduism, and it was influential on other schools of Indian philosophy. Sāmkhya is an enumerationist philosophy whose epistemology accepts three of six pramanas (proofs) as the only reliable means of gaining knowledge. These include pratyakṣa (perception), anumāṇa (inference) and śabda (āptavacana, word/testimony of reliable sources).
