Dear Community and Friends,
It has been said that we never forget the one who opened our hearts to the truth of who we really are. Whether it was a yoga teacher or a friend, every time you think of this individual, a deep sense of gratitude overcomes you. Perhaps, that initial awakening happened the first time you heard Gurudev or sat in a class with Kamini, Chandrakant, and many of our amazing teachers.
Whether it was in the U.S., Canada, Iceland, India, or Italy, your light has been lit. From that initial connection, you witnessed miracles of all types occur in your life. It may have been in your relationships with your parents, spouse, children, coworkers, and friends. The significant impact it has on your familial life, professional life, romantic life and social life is apparent as these teachings have instilled increased contentment, love, peace, and harmony into your life. Now is your chance to open the door for others in the same way it was opened for you.
We are a global community dedicated to embodying and transmitting the authentic wisdom and experience of yoga to further the evolution of humanity.
It is the dream of Gurudev, Kamini, and Malay to continue to grow this sanctuary of love that strengthens the spirit, heals the heart, and sustains the soul, in the company of like-minded seekers.
By supporting the Amrit Yoga Institute’s mission to further spread its teachings by making them more readily available to those most in need of inner freedom, you are sharing your light with a spiritually thirsty world that has yet to discover the transformation you experienced!

Humanitarian Campaign (Mataji Fund)
The Amrit Yoga Institute is engaging in humanitarian efforts on a global scale. The initiatives we have implemented this year are dear to our hearts. With these open hearts, we envision humankind living in harmonious interaction with themselves, one another, and the world.
We are bringing the benefits associated with I AM Yoga Nidra to veterans of foreign wars on a consistent basis. We have helped restore fire damaged dormitories at Bapuji’s Samadhi Mandir and continue to develop the Mataji Fund supporting the thriving girls’ school in India. We could not have accomplished this without your involvement!
Gurudev is committed to engaging in humanitarian efforts throughout India and elsewhere. We want to do whatever is in our power to create peace and harmony. Support our Efforts through service, time, and energy.
When a person gives, that person is open to receive.

Growth & Expansion Fund
As the Amrit Yoga Institute continues its efforts to deliver high-quality life-transforming experiences to all those who seek this light, we also must expand to accommodate those in search of inner contentment. Thanks to your ongoing support, in the Spring of 2017, we were able to add two new housing structures, making it possible for us to lodge an increased number of program participants and provide more private housing options!
To complement this housing expansion, we have also closed on a new program space, situated on a 2-acre plot of land, to facilitate all the exciting new programs we have in store for 2018 and beyond. As the institute grows, Gurudev’s next step is to break ground on the construction of a new state-of-the-art yoga, meditation, and community building including a acoustically pleasing Darshan room, a kitchen, laundry facilities, offices, and private guest accommodations with attached bathrooms! We are very close to making this quantum leap, and, to make this a reality, we need your support!
Work performed with right attitude is worship in action. When we
work with love, life becomes joyful. This is its reward.
