Darpan Ashram

Ashram life provides a wonderful opportunity to break your personal limitations & barriers and live without any expectations. Darpan is a place, prototype, model and module all rolled into one, that mirrors individual transformation from consumer being to divine being. It is a rare place in this world as it is entirely dedicated to Self Realisation. Darpan ashram doesn’t fit into any classification. Outwardly, it may appear like just another beautiful, peaceful place. However, the real magnificence of Darpan is the opportunity to experience and receive a living Guru’s grace, presence and guidance in the inner work of awakening to our original nature.

Our Path

Sahaj Smriti Yog (SSY)

Sahaj Smriti Yog is the journey of recognizing one’s Universal Self and identifying with Reality.

Biologically every individual is a colony of trillions of cells, a wonderful spectacle of diverse processes of change that keep happening in such a wonderfully coordinated manner in this colony called individual. But real wonder opens itself up before us when we realise our limitless expanse as universal Self. This limitless sacred expanse is the foundation in which this scaffolding or building we commonly call individual, is enshrined.

Our Guruji

As a Gruhastha he established Universal Forum for Human Dignity.  As a Visionary he envisioned Darpan Ashram. As a Yogi he revealed Sahaj Smriti Yog.

As spiritual seekers or associates or practicing ones, we all know that any mystic’s persona or higher dimensions keep unveiling and unfolding before us incessantly. Guruji is no exception to this divine principle.

In moment of purity ‘I’ and ‘U’ are just vowels in Absolute Equation!”
