Welcome to U.C.Y.L. Trust
Universal Confluence of Yoga-Vedanta Luminary (U.C.Y.L.) Trust
U.C.Y.L. Trust is established to uphold and promote the study and practice of Yoga and Vedanta and to enhance spirituality in daily life. The Yoga taught is based on the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and Vedanta is taught in the tradition of Sri Bhagavatpada Shankaracharya’s Advaita.
These are delivered in through Satsanga (spiritual discourses), meditation days and weekends, youth programmes, Hatha Yoga classes, and Hatha Yoga teachers’ training courses. Please check Upcoming Events or Event Calander where it is regularly updated.
None of the programmes or facilities would have been possible without the invaluable efforts and teaching of the esteemed founder of The Universal Confluence of Yoga-Vedanta Luminary (U.C.Y.L.), Shrimad Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya Svami Sadananda Sarasvati, of the Sri Shankaracharya lineage. The U.C.Y.L. was founded in 1972 and was established in Great Britian in 1981, Abhedashram is also under the U.C.Y.L Trust.
Guruji’s books are published and distributed by Luminary Publications.
