SHIVA TRUST REGISTERED CHARITY
The Shiva Trust is a registered charity founded in 2012 by our Hindu Satguru Sri Ramana Devi. The Shiva Trust provides profound Hindu and Self-realisation programmes and tools that support the search for Truth and cultivate inner peace, happiness, health and well-being. These programmes, which include Hindu Philosophy, Meditation, Yoga, and practical knowledge for daily living, have helped thousands around the world to completely transform their lives. Its core value is to find a sense of Love, Service and Compassion within oneself and to unite people in our society – of different cultures, religions and nationalities, reminding us that we have but one goal; to realise our true nature is one with the divine.
Sri Ramana Devi is from the Shavite Hindu Tradition, Lord Shiva is regarded as the patron God of Yoga, Meditation and Arts. Those who worship Shiva are to be Pure in heart, and do good to others. They are to see Shiva in the poor, the weak and in the diseased. Sri Ramana Devi created the charity to serve all those less fortunate. But, also to create a Membership Programme where the members of our Charity are striving to attain Self Realisation through the practice of Yoga, and mostly importantly Karma Yoga. We employ the classical approaches of Jnana, Bhakta, Karma, Raja and Guru Bhakti Yoga. Sri Ramana Devi tirelessly serves both members and beneficiaries alike to materialise their goals, relieve suffering and achieve Happiness.
Shiva Trust also delivers classes and courses to enlighten you to the Scriptural Teachings regarding Self Realisation, Sri Ramana has created a variety of dynamic Courses, classes and on line study programmes which promise to expand your knowledge and Self awareness. The majority of our courses are Endorsed, or Accredited by the National Open College. Shiva Trust is a National Open College Approved Education Centre.

The four Yogas are not antagonistic to one another, but are complimentary. One-sided development is not commendable. Therefore, one should practice the four Yogas. We can have our dominant Yoga as the central basis and can practice the other Yogas as auxillaries to bring in rapid progress on the spiritual path. Guru Bhakti Yoga is practiced throughout, the development of ones relationship with ones Guru using Guru Bhakti Yoga speeds up the process of Self realisation ten-fold.
