Abhedashram

Abhedashram was established to uphold and promote the teaching, study and practice of Yoga and Vedanta and to enhance spirituality and wellbeing in daily life. The Yoga taught is based on the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and the Vedanta is in the tradition of Sri Bhagavatpada Shankaracharya’s Advaita.

UCYL Trust was established in the continent in 1972 and 1981 in Great Britian. None of the programmes or facilities would have been possible without the invaluable efforts and teaching of the esteemed founder Shrimad Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya Svami Sadananda Sarasvati, of the Sri Shankaracharya lineage.

All are welcome to join us in our aim, lifestyle and practice regardless of caste, creed, colour, gender, age, religion or nationality.

Our charitable work for the benefit of social upliftment includes physical and mental health and wellbeing, spiritual guidance, personal and community empowerment, housing provision, tackling poverty, hunger and unemployment and environmental projects. We have helped disadvantaged children and families, single parents, domestic, drug and alcohol abuse victims, homeless and unemployed people, LGBT members, health care professionals, armed forces police and many more.

We are a registered charity in England and Wales with the registration number of 1051590; funded only by devotees’ dakshina (donations), Hatha Yoga fees, programme fees, income from rentals and everyone's selfless service.

Nobody teaching here receives a salary, wages or stipend; we work fully on a Seva (voluntary) basis. Your generous pledge of support in the form of one time/monthly donations or regular Seva/ selfless service will enable us to reduce suffering in society.
