Welcome to Pushkar Meditation Temple

Ancient Indian sages have explored two main paths to Reality or the essential nature of Self - Vivekaja marg (the path of distinction/discrimination) and Yogaja marg (the path of union/integration). Patanjali Raja yoga and Shankar’s Vedanta follow the Vivekaja marg by which the Purusha or Atma (the Self) is isolated from Prakriti (in Patanjal yoga) or from Maya (in the case of Vedanta).

The word Yoga does not mean union in Patanjali’s system. It means Viyog meaning separation (of Purusha and Prakriti or the Self and nature/matter.) It means samadhi or intense abstract meditation.

Shaivaagam (scriptures of Shiva followers) on the other hand has adopted the Yogaja marg in which goal is not isolation of Purusha from Prakriti or Maya but the integration of the individual Self with the Universal Self or Bhairava and realization of the universe as the expression of His Shakti or spiritual Energy. The ideal of Shaivaagam is not the rejection of the universe but its assimilation to its Source.

Patanjali’s Yogasutra, the source scripture of Yoga and Upanishads (the knowledge part of Vedas) form the basis of Vivekaja marg whereas Vijnanabhairava is an excellent exposition of Yogaja marg.

The practice, sharing/teaching and application of the wisdom of both these ancient paths in present context is the main purpose and goal of Pushkar Meditation Temple, a wellness institution founded and run personally by an internationally renowned yogi and teacher Swamiji Kapri. Swamiji’s life mission is to reestablish yoga as a spiritual discipline. Pushkar Meditation Temple is ranked number one yoga school in Pushkar (TripAdvisor). It’s a Yoga Alliance, USA registered school in holy Pushkar.
