All activities of LiYA USA are funded & supported by our dedicated patrons.
In ancient times, education was not a commodity that would be sold in the market. Knowledge was considered as a sacred, divine gift and was offered by Gurus free to the dedicated seekers (shishyas). The people who offered knowledge – Gurus – were considered the most important pillars of the society. Gurus were given Rajashraya (Patronage by the kings) for the service they were offering. Because of this the purity of the knowledge was maintained
Today in democratic world, like all other services education came in the open market. Today knowledge has become a business and relationship between shishyas (Students) and Gurus (mentors) has changed into a transaction. While this has opened the scope and spread of education to all socio-economic strata of the society, purity of knowledge is compromised in many ways. Education has merely remained a tool for earning money. And knowledge providers are at the mercy of consumers of such education.
Siddha Samadhi Yog (SSY) and all it’s advance programs is knowledge of self management. And the focus of this education is for applying the pure science of deep, inner silence into living a joyous, peaceful life contributing one’s best in the world.
We are grateful to our patrons members for supporting us by their generous donations. It is only because of their dedication and generosity we have been offering all our programs at a very nominal costs so everyone can take benefit of this great ancient knowledge. It is only because of them we can maintain the quality of our programs.
It is their trust and financial support that gives us the courage to take up important projects like Infant Siddha Program (ISP) Training to parents, Rishi S’Cool for leadership training to children, Matru Mandir, SATVIK Seva Kitchen or Peace Home for our community, even when we know that while these projects will add a great value to our community they will not be profitable ventures.
We are dedicated to serving the community, raising spiritual consciousness of individuals, for building an enlightened world.
