Life in Ashram

In 2012, Diksha moved to Tripura yoga ashram in Haridwar. She had started to live an ashram life by practicing karma yoga, bhakti yoga and Hatha yoga with other students of ashram. There were strict rules to follow and learn the discipline. Swami Amalanand, an Indian Monk and the founder of Tripura Yoga ashram was the guru for the disciples in the Ashram. His teachings were unique and very clear which was the best way for self realization. There was a routine from morning to evening in the ashram where each hour was learning. Diksha follow all the daily routines from Morning Prayer to evening Sanskrit class with gurudev. Diksha had been doing karma yoga by cooking Satvik food and helping in the kitchen, cleaning the rooms. And, Bhakti yoga- under a priest guidance and self practice of Japa, mantra meditation, kirtan, Havan and chanting in the temple. And, she practice Hatha yoga under guru ji guidance.

Each and every spiritual practice in the ashram has a meaning in life as yoga is the daily routine and lifestyle. Diksha had been practicing under her guru for two years until he left his body. Diksha consider that two years practice as her foundational practice for her spiritual journey. In 2014, Diksha went for her first yoga teacher training in rishikesh as per her guru ji advice.





Receiving Her Name

Receiving a name from the spiritual teacher is the blessing. It’s a interesting story behind Diksha Ji receive name. She receives her name Diksha from her parents when she was born. While she was living in the ashram, she was expecting a name from Guru Swami Amalanand as he was giving spiritual names to every desciples. When she asked, guru ji said that “you already have a powerful name – Diksha, which means Initiation. Live your name!” Diksha Ji was not satisfied with the answer but guru ji was very much satisfied with her name.

In 2016, when Diksha was in her 500 hours yoga teacher training, she had another opportunity to receive a spiritual name from her yoga teacher Yogrishi Vishvketu. The day when He was giving names to all his students, it was the turn of Diksha ji. It was really interesting that she again get the same name Diksha but with addition of Anand, which means Bliss. Then, she realizes that Diksha is her spiritual name from childhood and she must accept the wording of Guru ji. Now, her spiritual name is Diksha-Anand, Initiation of the bliss. In other way she really feels her name connected with her guru name which is Swami Amal- Anand, which means Pure Bliss.
