If you really wish to evolve spiritually,
you should at once make a start and pursue a regular and steady course of sadhana.
Do not worry over physical and mental obstructions or unhelpful circumstances.
They exist to test your sincerity and inner strength, and to give you a fillip from time to time.
Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in Singapore had ceased operation since March 2014 due to main teachers’ commitment to full-time Vedanta study in India. This website is maintained to serve the purpose of people who want to find Hatha yoga teachers who learned from Sivananda tradition and or are interested in Vedanta, Bhagavad Gita and Sanskrit study.
Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre Singapore, an affiliation of Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre headquarter in Canada, was operating from 2007 to March 2014. Sumukhee and Jānaki who were the main teachers, running the yoga centre as devotion to Swami Sivananda and it had attracted many like minded teachers and yoga enthusiasts who found their practice harmonise with traditional teachings.
Now both of them are back in Singapore after three and half years of Vedanta study from Arsha Vidya Gurukula, an institute founded by Pujya Sri Swami Dayananda Saraswati for the traditional study of Advaita Vedanta, Sanskrit, Yoga and other classical Indian disciplines.
There is no intention of running Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre Singapore as before. People who are interest in learning Hatha yoga or Vedanta & Sanskrit please contact respective teachers from the link provided.
We wish you have a successful spiritual pursue.
Vison of Śrimad Bhagavad Gītā
When we try to acquire about our life, the entire life is nothing but on-going pursues. Infinite numbers of goals, differs from individual to individual, and also varies from time to time. In this process, two-fold mistakes are done by us, first is finding the fulfilment in the wrong place, and second is misunderstanding that I am really lacking. Therefore, Veda is given to us like an user manual, guiding our life to be free from samsara (life of becoming). But the body of Veda is too vast, therefore Bhagavad Gītā which consists of 700 verses is written by Veda-Vyāsa as the essence of all Vedas. All the Vedas only have one intention to reveal the oneness between individual self, Brahman and universe. This is the principle teaching of Gītā.
We will start with the vision of entire Gītā, then verse by verse will be taken for further study.
