in Nainital District, a hermitage was built for yogis
in a space where many Himalayan masters have meditated
since 1133. This hermitage was intended for meditating
ascetics and built as a symbolic reminder of particular
realms and fields familiar to yogis. The Mahayog Academy
has now opened this hermitage to create a meeting

of the environment he is familiar with. We request
you to respect tradition and simplicity and re-acquaint
yourself with our ancient heritage and Vedic traditions.
