Light of the Spirit Monastery is a monastic community for those men who wish to follow the paths of Original Yoga and Original Christianity in their search for God.
Our major spiritual practice (sadhana) is meditation. Therefore we begin each day with three hours of meditation. We draw our perspective as yogis from the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Darshana (Yoga Sutras) and the Sankhya Karika. Yoga is based on the Sankhya philosophy which was the original philosophy of the ancient rishis of India and the basis of the scriptures just mentioned.
Visitors, male or female, who wish to come to the monastery for an hour or so visit are welcome, though they should notify us beforehand.
We do not accept short-term residents who do not intend to lead the monastic life, nor do we have provision for those interested only in a work-study program.
