This phone course is offered annually, for candidates to explore their interest in taking vows with Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram.  Click here for more information about the different levels of vows for yogis' differing situations.

All levels require an application and Swamiji's approval.  At some levels, this Vows Preparation course is a prerequisite.  This course is an opportunity to clarify your commitment and your goal, as well as to prepare for our Vows Retreat beginning July 5 2018.
