तन्मे मनः शिवसंकल्पम् अस्तु ।

येनेदं भूतं भुवनं भविष्यत् परिगृहिततममृतेन सर्वम् ।

येन यज्ञस्तायते सप्त होता तन्मे मनः शिवसंकल्पमस्तु ।।

(Yajurveda 34.4)

The wandering mind is the cause of all sorrows

but when turned to the right goals,

it becomes the vehicle by which release is possible.

Yogi (Sanskrit: masc yogī, योगी; fem yoginī) is derived from yogin, which refers to a practitioner of meditation and spirituality. Gurukul (Sanskrit: गुरुकुल, romanized: Gurukula) was the main education system in ancient India with Shishya ('students' or 'disciples') living near or with the guru, in the same house.

The "e" in eYogi Gurukul connects the ancient Vedic practices of meditation and spirituality of Hinduism to the modern word of science and globalisation.

Soon the word spread in community and in Jan 2020 eYogi Gurukul was started by like-minded people of Indian origin with a purpose to educate people about India’s history, its ancient scriptures, spirituality, and science of Hinduism. In a short period of time, the organization grew from few founding members (trustees) to many today and increasing day by day. The primary target audience is children of 8 years of age and classes are conducted in safe environment eg. schools.

The eYogi’s courses teach how to connect India’s ancient past to modern science and philosophy, how to answer the most difficult questions effectively and how to explain who we are. eYogi’s teachings are based on research and deep understanding of Sanatana Dharma, our scriptures and culture.
