Ethical Guidelines ( View More )

The organization “Paramanand Institute of Yoga Sciences & Research” inherits the ancient approach of yoga to inculcate and infuse the wisdom of yoga in each and every aspirant. To envision this into practice, the whole design of teaching and learning is framed in such a way that ethical sense becomes inevitable for all the members of the Institute.

At Paramanand Institute, the very beginning of the day starts with the ancient code of conduct prescribed in the name of Dinacharya (the daily regimen). Every day activities are arranged in the light of Ritucharya (seasonal code of conduct). Moreover, every step of behavior of the individual is visualized under the concept of Achar-rasayan (behavioral chemistry).

We see the whole spectrum of Yama (rules, how to act in the society) and Niyama (personal code and conducts) prescribed by Maharishi Patanjali need to be seen into practical day-to-day behavioral terminology, if not hundred percent, at least whatever feasible that could be practiced sincerely and honestly. We feel this sense of transparency in the behavior of an individual is essential to be in the path of Yoga.
