|YOGA PRABHA BHARATI (SEVA SANSTHA) TRUST||YOGA PRABHA BHARATI (SEVA SANSTHA) TRUST was formed in the year 2000 primarily to propagate the practice and benefits of ‘Samarpan Meditation’ to any human being interested in seeking the ‘Truth’. It is taught totally FREE OF COST. It is taught by His Holiness Shree Shivkrupanand Swamiji, a living Divine Master from India. Yoga Prabha Bharati (Seva Sanstha) Trust has succeeded in spreading the teachings of Samarpan Meditation & its benefits in the last 16 years to millions of individuals across the country and also to overseas namely in UK, Germany, Singapore, USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, Kenya, South Africa, Peru, etc.||Life these days is increasingly driven by competition resulting in stress, dissatisfaction and lack of fulfillment. How then can one achieve Inner Peace, Happiness and Satisfaction in life? Meditation is a universal technique that clears one’s mind and connects one’s inner energy to the Universal Energy, leading to the pure joy of being one with Universal Consciousness, and experiencing unlimited Peace and Happiness. The Trust is also involved in supporting the holistic way of living and includes in its agenda support and propagation of Classical Music, Ayurveda & Yoga among many others.||The Trust proposes to form Ashrams & spread its teachings by holding mega meditation camps across the country. The Ashrams shall be in a sense a ‘Garage of the Soul’. The primary cause of all problems in humans is - ‘thoughts’. We are aware of the effects noise, air and water pollution; however man is yet to comprehend the effects of THOUGHT pollution on humanity. Today man lives in densely populated cities and hence is affected by the same in a big way. This leads to one’s thoughts swinging from the PAST to the FUTURE, but rarely remaining in the PRESENT. SAMARPAN MEDITATION teaches us the ART OF LIVING IN THE PRESENT by connecting with nature. Ashrams are proposed to be developed at secluded locations in the country, with the objective of providing space & an environment in tune with nature. These Ashrams will help visitors re-charge their depleted mental batteries & return to society reinvigorated, balanced with a sense of purpose to face life’s challenges afresh. A small event can have a budget of Rs. 50,000 with bigger event having budget of upto Rs. 20,00,000. However, any amount donated will go to the collection fund to carry out such a activities.|
