Guru Mai Ram is a guardian and successor of the Aghora Kapali NathYoga spiritual tradition. This tradition is described in the Vedas and attributed to the metaphysical and theological Advaita philosophy which maintains that all reality is in unity and is governed by one principle.
The Naths are the initiators and masters of yoga or perfect beings. Aghora in Sanskrit means a non-dualistic state of consciousness, while Kapali refers to a skull symbolising the universe. Revealing the divine state, Aghoris holds a skull in one hand. The Aghora Kapali sadhana (spiritual practice) is said to have come directly from Brahman or Shiva and has no links with religions and other organisations of Sadhus (hermits or ascetics). Aghoris are beings who have transcended duality and perceived the highest unity. Aghora Kapali is a Guru Parampara tradition meaning that the teaching
is passed from a teacher to a disciple by word of mouth.
The austere form of the sadhana, the continuous link with spiritual knowledge, asceticism, inaccessibility and isolation have prevented the loss of the tradition that is considered an untold treasure as it guards the unbelievable spiritual powers or Siddhis (perfect abilities).
Guru Mai Ram has been initiated into the Aghora Kapali Guru Parampara tradition. She has received Guru Parampara spiritual power and knowledge. Persons initiated into this sadhana receive a spiritual name ending in the mantra ‘Ram’ (राम, Sanskrit for God).
Mai Ram (Sanskrit माई राम) is a spiritual name meaning the Mother of God and is included on the Guru Parampara line list stored at ashrams in India.
Since 2009, Guru Mai Ram has conducted the sadhana at the Hari Ram Ashram in Varanasi, India, and since 2012 at the Mai Ram Yoga Ashram founded in Lithuania. The Mai Ram Yoga Ashram is a consecrated place of Guru tradition, home, where the authentic teaching of Guru Parampara tradition is passed on. As tradition dictates, at the Ashram Guru Mai Ram spreads the spiritual knowledge to help people successfully adapt it to life, foster spiritual values and move toward liberation.
The Guruji is the founder of the Mai Ram International Yoga Association.
The association has been established to develop and promote the Mai Ram Yoga methodology, organise training, workshops and conferences and collaborate with allied organisations in Lithuania and abroad. Mai Ram Yoga represents a system of yoga practices integrated by the Guruji for the present-day human.
Mai Ram Yoga comprises a whole of spiritual yoga practices fostered by the tradition that helps the practitioner to raise the consciousness above duality. By observing personal discipline and consistent practice of the levels of Mai Ram Yoga, the human can more easily adapt to changes occurring in life, promote personal growth and maturity, retain health, develop the acceptance of the world and form a correct approach towards the self and the environment.
