According to the Siddha Yoga Orgteachings, this attainment is not only possible, but it is also their birthright. The goal of SiddhaYoga is self-realization—constant yoga experience, or union with God. Each of us possesses a divine power hidden behind the mind, the body, and the ego. They practice yoga in order to become aware of this divine power, the Self, and to bring all their actions, thoughts, and words into alignment with it. Shaktipat, or spiritual initiation, is the key to this divine vision of ourselves and the world. They gain access to their inner spiritual realms when they receive shaktipat. Then, as a result of their practices, their spiritual awareness develops. Through the work of the SYDA Foundation, the Siddha Yoga teachings are made accessible to seekers worldwide.

As head of the Siddha Yoga lineage, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda upholds the sacred tradition of making shaktipat accessible to seekers. Siddha Yoga students, guided by her teachings, embrace the spiritual practices of yoga, such as meditation, chanting, contemplation, study, and self-service, as a means to self-realization.

The Siddha Yoga teachings are derived from the timeless scriptural traditions of Kashmir Shaivism and Vedanta, as well as from the enlightened Siddha masters' experience. If you are new to the Siddha Yoga path, Swami Muktananda's spiritual journey guide, From the Finite to the Infinite, is an excellent place to begin.

The Siddhayoga Practices

They practice Siddha Yoga in order to connect with and expand their inner mystical state, until they become established in their experience of yoga or oneness with God over time. Meditation techniques, chanting, service, and retreats are all examples of Siddha Yoga practices.

Each of the practices provides a glimpse into their essential nature—the serenity and increased awareness of meditation, for example, or the sweetness and joy of chanting. Each practice cultivates virtues such as detachment and love through selfless service and generosity through dakshina offering. Constant study and contemplation of the teachings enables us to comprehend their experiences and inspires us to go deeper. Each of us develops our own distinct combination of these practices in accordance with our inner wisdom.

The mystery of Siddha Yoga practices is that they are infused with the Siddha Yoga Guru's awakened energy. As they apply themselves to the practices, their own effort is amplified.

Numerous Siddha Yoga students also discover that practicing the practices in a community of seekers, such as at Siddha Yoga meditation centers, ashrams, and retreats, enhances their effect.

They continually move closer to living a truly spiritual life through diligent effort in the practices, aided by grace and good company.
