Aim and goal

The goal of meditation is to increase happiness and well being within and around. At Shree Mahesh Heritage the ancient teachings of the East are taught in a modern way suitable for the western mind and body so students can flourish in their practice and naturally gravitate to a more meditative lifestyle.

There is no bias to any particular spiritual teachings and teach in a non-dogmatic way. Generally Western students consider meditation as quite challenging practice because they are not used to sitting for long periods in stillness. The focus is more on inner stillness and wisdom and to allow you to continue the same in various positions (sitting, standing, lying) and in activities.

This program is specialized for people who are already having their certification - RYT 200 or RYT 500 - Yoga. The course is designed in such a way that the student will get a complete picture of meditation, knowing well, how to begin, move and progress to achieve the ultimate state of meditation with the signs and symptoms of each stage.

It is believed that the 'real' teachings come from all those who participate in the training discussing, sharing, exploring and debating practice and meditative lifestyle in the philosophy sessions.

If you who have a passion to become a teacher this course provides a supportive arena to access your inner guru and build a strong foundation of confidence and skill which will allow you to teach clearly and precisely from your own experience

    "In one word: Amazing. In more than one; located in a remote environment up on the hills of tapovan, overlooking on rice fields and ever green view, far away from the busy noisy areas of Rishikesh, the perfect place to disconnect from the outside and reconnnect to yourself. Combination of great deep philosophy background, variety of Meditation techniques and professional teachers will take you along the path of exploration and self realization. The MTTC can truly transform your way of living if only for a month. Last least, wonderful food based on Ayurvedic cooking will nutrit your both body and mind. Happy I gave myself the opportunity to walk this path."

    "I have spent 1 month in the SMH School, studying yoga and meditation and would like to thank Ram ji and all the team for the knowledge they have shared. It was a great month, full of lessons - not only lessons of yoga, meditation and pranayama, but some life lessons also.The course definitely helped to understand and clarify many issues regarding yoga and meditation practice and also to understand the opportunities and potential of self-practice and self-development. Currently for my students I use many techniques which were discussed and practiced during the course.Separately I would like to thank Rajni and Govind ji for taking care about our stomachs during the course. :)There were some points to be improved regarding the course. For me I would prefer to have some more advanced information, but still the course was rather balanced and very useful. Also some improvements in the menu could make the stay even more marvelous. But we were the 1st group, based in the new building, so some gaps could be normal for that time. I believed that currently all of them are solved and the course became even more balanced, interesting and useful."

    " I like to thank all the staff of the Shree Mahesh Heritage / Kushal Palace. Everyones effort to make students course flow as smooth as possible didnt pass unnoticed. Food was delicious, the staff kind and lovely, teachers professional and inspiring! I found the course itself very helpful in giving a broad picture of such a vast argument as yoga and meditation and Ram made sure everyone left with an understanding of the foundation of this ancient yet complex practice. Personally I joined the course almost as a mistake, as it wasnt planned, but it helped a lot pushing me to bring issues up to the surface and face parts of my personality I wasnt completely aware of. I was already on the path of meditation, wandering, and this course gave me direction and inspired me to expand my horizon further, and it did it with gentle loving kindness. This course drove me through different philosophies/schools and it was of invaluable help to find out what meditation technique is most suitable for my personality.Thank you again :)Om Shantih Shantih Shantih "

    " I wonder how many more things Ill have to demonstrate to you, I have to remind you that within 14 months, you made me stop smoking, stop drinking alcohol and wine, lose 20 kgs, practice yoga and now meditation, drink incredible quantities of hot water and last but not least, stop eating meat (which would have seemed to me 6 weeks ago, just impossible to imagine). What will be the next step, I cant think of anything but Im sure youll find. God gave you such exceptional gifts for teaching, for explaining complicated concepts simply and easily, for passing on your enthusiasm , knowledge and truths to other people, that you have to keep using your talent, one way or the other, to help other people improve themselves and get better ..

    " Over the duration of this course, Ram shared his knowledge and became a friend. I feel much more prepared to continue on my spiritual journey. We only had five short days together, he gave me the tools to help me experience much greater success in my meditation and yoga, thanks to his teaching.. "

    " I came here second time to learn from RamG and help my condition. This program was rich in knowledge and gave me a complete different awareness of my body. Thanks to him for great practice and tools. I also feel that my structure is changing gradually and that is inspiring me a lot. I understand that if I continue my practice, may be one day I will be able to help others. Yoga is becoming really part of my life. I thank Ramji for the precious help and let the nature guide me. Thanks a lot for Rajnee and her beautiful presence and healthy and delicious food (I will miss it!) thanks to both of you for patience, care and support. "

    " Just a word to say hello and let you know that I am practicing my yoga. Not as much fun without you and certainly not as good without you. However, I am encouraged to continue since my last visit. I felt like I made some real progress with all your help and patience. I am still having trouble getting the right nasal breathing without your guidance but I will do what I can until my next visit. "
