Initiation into Yoga

Facilitators: Anand Jagota, Gwynne Mayer, and Sy Ginsburg

Every Monday, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. Central time [UTC -05] / 8:30 - 9:30 pm IST [UTC +5:30]


This ongoing reading and discussion group meets to study the teachings of Sri Madhava Ashish (1920-1997) and his gurus. Born in Scotland, Ashish joined the RAF and served in India, staying on after WWII to pursue the spiritual life. He became a disciple of Sri Krishna Prem and assumed leadership of the Mirtola Ashram after Prem’s death in 1965.

Having completed a detailed study of Ashish’s book, Man, Son of Man, the group now turns to Initiation into Yoga: An Introduction to the Spiritual Life by Sri Krishna Prem. According to Prem, “the Truth exists already in our hearts, however ignorant our outer personalities may be; it is a sheer fact that words that spring from deep realization raise echoes within us if we listen to them with free minds.”

Anand Jagota was a pupil of Sri Madhava Ashish from 1980 through 1997, visiting the Mirtola Ashram several times during that period.

Gwynne Mayer, MA, is a life-long student of Jung, Blavatsky, Steiner, and Gurdjieff. She has extensive experience as a therapist, astrologer, and educational systems advisor.

Sy Ginsburg visited Ashish at the Mirtola Ashram from 1978 to 1997. He wrote the book, The Masters Speak: An American Businessman Encounters Ashish and Gurdjieff.
