Yoga Science

Scientists are beginning to uncover evidence that meditation has a tangible effect on the brain. Sceptics argue that it is not a practical way to try to deal with the stresses of modern life. But the long years when adherents were unable to point to hard science to support their belief in the technique may finally be coming to an end. When Carol Cattley’s husband died it triggered a relapse of the depression which had not plagued her since she was a teenager. “I instantly felt as if I wanted to die,” she said. “I couldn’t think of what else to do.” … continue reading

There are certain persons who can cure diseases merely by touch. The science behind this is also the application of positive microvita. And the cause of the decomposition of anything overtime is negative microvita. When a person is attacked by negative microvita and certain symptoms are observed, it is called “ prognosis” and when the symptoms develop in the final stage of the disease, it is called “ diagnosis”. There is no doubt that the medicine prepared in a sentient environment by sentient people, from a medium or mother tincture which is also prepared in a sentient environment, will attract … continue reading


7 cakras in human bodyBiopsychology

The cakras or controlling nuclei of the human body are formed in two ways. The human backbone is composed of several small bones piled one on another, separated by pillow-like substances called discs. Through the center of these backbones runs the spinal cord. This spinal cord seems to be one entity, but there are actually 3 channels within each other containing 3 subtle nerves … continue reading

Researchers attribute these changes to a phenomenon they call the ŒRelaxation Effect.¹ The researchers compared the genetic profile of individuals who were long-term practitioners of relaxation methods such as yoga and meditation to a control group of individuals who were not relaxation practitioners. In the words of Dr Herbert Benson, who led the research group at the Harvard Medical School, We found a range of disease fighting genes that were active in the relaxation practitioners but not active in the control group. Interestingly, in as little as two months after the control group began meditating, their genetic profile changed to resemble those of the relaxation practitioners. … continue reading

Composite Medical Pathies – A Need of the Hour

The human body is one but the approaches of bringing it into ease (free from dis-ease) are manifold. We have yet to discover a comprehensive model of the human body which will reveal the limits and efficacy of different therapeutic modalities. Shrii P.R.Sarkar encouraged the approach of composite medical-pathies. Under such a system, every hospital or clinic will be equipped with treatments stemming from different medical systems. In this way, the patients would be able to receive the unique benefits of an appropriate therapeutic modality. The welfare of the patients has to be the paramount consideration in the choice of … continue reading

Yoga Philosophy

many candlesHuman Life Is An Ideological Flow

The study of that which is beyond the mind is Ideology and the process for achieving oneness with that state is meditation. Human beings are moving from birth to birth along a path which flows from one expanded state to another until final achievement. Humans have three levels of mental process—instinct, intellect and intuition. Some humans are fully engrossed in their instinctual mind. Instinct is not learned, it is inborn. For example the instinct of the baby is to suck milk. No one can say that a baby is inferior or superior, high or low. A baby is just a baby struggling with his or her body to be able to crawl, sit up or walk. The baby is moving along its own path. … continue reading


lotus flowerSignificance of Raja Dhi Raja Yoga (Part 2)

By doing Prán’áyáma the respiration is extended because we know that after every inhalation and exhalation there is pause and this very pause is the cause of some higher intellectual or spiritual thoughts or experience. In the first lesson also there is some kind of Prán’áyáma which naturally happens but in the fourth lesson the Prán’áyáma is separately given to control the breath system. Thus by the increase of this pause period Prán’áyáma is able to help in quietening the wanderings of the mind. Hence it is a very very important lesson.

scientific human mindYoga Wisdom – Your Mind Is More Than Your Brain

We can cut open our brain, we can examine all its parts and chambers, we can touch it, we can analyze its molecules. But we still cannot touch or see the mind. Because the mind is an interior level of our being. And interiors cannot be cut open with a knife. Interiors must be interpreted. If you want to know what my mind is like, you must communicate with me. Poking my brain won’t do much. Hook my brain up to an EEG machine can tell you many things about my brain activity, but nothing about how I feel. You, a human being, not a machine, must ask me how I feel. … continue reading


Practising tantraProcess of Tantra

In the word “Tantra”, “Tra” is a Sanskrit suffix which signifies repetition. Much of what we do in life is repetition. We repeat a particular action with only some variation of intensity or interest. How many times have you been in this room, how many times have you eaten breakfast, how many times have you eaten ice cream hoping that that ice cream would be the best ice cream you ever ate in your life? What kind of repetition will get us out of repetition? Repetition is circular; it keeps going around and around. “Tra” signifies moving out of circular movement, repetition that brings you up and out of repetition…

In Krishna’s Bhagavad Gita, the great yogi warrior and Godhead of the Indian bhakti movement, emphasizes that yoga is union, love, the source of all things:
He who is rooted in oneness realizes that I am in every being, wherever he goes, he remains in me. When he sees all beings as equal in suffering or in joy because they are like himself, that man has grown perfect in yoga. … continue reading

Our yoga instructorThe style of yoga we teach, in AMYA Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Singapore, is known as Raja Dhi Raja (RDR) yoga. RDR is an expansion of the ancient Raja yoga system, also known as Ashtanga yoga. Compare to Hatha yoga, RDR yoga differs in the way the asanas (“yoga postures”) are done. RDR yoga is practiced in a relatively slower pace and each asana is repeated several times in a more structured way. This balance the hormone secretion which is important for a peaceful mind; it also greatly stimulates the function of the internal organs and the nervous system.

About Us

About Us

Ananda Marga in Sanskrit means “Path of Bliss”. It is a social and spiritual organisation with a two-fold approach of
Self realisation and Service to humanity“.

Self realisation is the goal of life, achieved through meditation, yoga and related spiritual practices. Service to all creation is the way of life in the society of a spiritual aspirant.

Ananda Marga was started in 1955 in India by its spiritual founder Shrii Shrii Anandamurti. In the course of the following years, the missionary monks and nuns of Ananda Marga have spread its philosophy to almost all countries of the world. Many people have benefitted by practising meditation and yoga in their everyday life and have actively participated in the various social service programs of Ananda Marga.

Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar
(Shrii Shrii Ánandamúrti)

From his early childhood in Bihar, India, where he was born in 1921, P.R. Sarkar has been attracting others by his deep love for humanity and guiding them along the path of self-realization. Adjusting the ancient science of Tantra Yoga to meet the needs of this age, he developed a scientific and rational philosophy and a system of practical disciplines for physical, mental and spiritual development. Recognizing him as a spiritually realized Master, his followers called him “Shrii Shrii Anandamurti”  (which means “He who attracts others as the embodiment of bliss”) or simply “Baba”  (father).

Those who followed his teachings found their lives transformed as they overcame the weakness and negative tendencies of the mind and experienced a deep peace and bliss within. Inspired by his selfless example, they turned their energies to serving the society and elevating the oppressed.

In 1955, while still leading a normal family life as a railway official, P.R. Sarkar formed the organization Ananda Marga (“The Path of Bliss”),  and began training missionaries to spread his teachings of “self-realization and service to humanity”  all over India and later throughout the world. Reflecting the broadness of his universal vision, Ananda Marga has become a multi-faceted organization with different branches dedicated to the upliftment of humanity through education, relief, welfare, the arts, ecology, intellectual renaissance, women’s emancipation and humanistic economy.

In the field of ecology and environmental awareness, Sarkar propounded the philosophy of Neo-Humanism, extending the spirit of humanism to include love for animals, plants and the inanimate. He started a global plant exchange program to save and propagate thousands of plants species around the world. In conjunction with this, he also started sanctuaries for animals in the various locations around the world.

In the realm of philology and linguistics, P.R. Sarkar wrote volumes on the Bengali and Sanskrit languages which still require years of deep scholarly study to be understood. These volumes trace the evolution of words, phrases and cultural traditions that comprise today’s tapestry of Indian languages as well as new and important insights to Indo-European and other languages of the world.

In the field of science, Sarkar introduced the theory of Microvita in 1986 which subsequently has interested scientists around the world. In a series of discourses Sarkar has struck at the heart of conventional physics and biology, as he points out that the basic buildings blocks of life are microvita —  emanations of pure consciousness. The microvita theory provides a link between the worlds of perception and conception and implies that the distinct disciplines of physics, biology and mathematics will merge into one science of understanding the real nature of the universe.

In the field of music, literature and art, Sarkar urged artists to do art for service and blessedness and not merely “Art for art’s sake”. He wrote guidelines also for accomplishing this goal. Sarkar not only wrote long philosophical treatises, he has enriched us as well with children’s stories, fiction, comedy and drama. His most dramatic contribution is the 5018 songs known as Prabhat Samgiit (Songs of the New Dawn) which he started giving in 1982 until his departure in October 1990. These beautiful songs express the universality of the human spiritual heart. Most of the songs were written in Sarkar’s mother tongue, Bengali. Bengali scholars have given the highest praise to these songs, in terms of their poetic and symbolic expression.

For the collective welfare of the entire society he propounded the theory of PROUT (Progressive Utilization Theory), which stands for the maximum utilization and rational distribution of all the resources and potentialities of the world — physical, mental, and spiritual —  and the creation of a new, humanistic social order of harmony and justice for all. His uncomprmising moral stand against corruption and exploitation and his demand for social justice brought about the opposition of certain vested interests and the Communist Party of India, and resulted in the persecution of Ananda Marga and his own arrest in 1971 under false charges. During his seven year incarceration, he survived a poisoning attempt by jail officials and fasted on a liquid diet for 5-1/2 years in protest. Ultimately acquitted of all charges by the High Court, he was released in 1978 and from then until his departure in 1990 he guided the rapid expansion of his mission all over the world.

Most importantly, he taught his disciples the time tested science of Tantra and Yoga, and adapted these practices to the needs of modern day humans. These spiritual practices along with the vast and deep spiritual philosophy provide the inspiration and driving energy for Ananda Marga.
