Ma Yoga Shakti International Mission

Ma Yoga Shakti International Mission

A Hindu organization founded in 1979 by Maha Mandaleshwar Ma Yoga Shakti Saraswati, an Indian female guru who immigrated to the United States in 1977. She established ashrams in Ozone Park, New York, and Palm Bay and Deer-field Beach, Florida, and alternates her time between them. She has also organized four ashrams in India: Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi, and Gondia.

She teaches a balanced approach to all forms of yoga hatha, rajah, bhakti, and karma. Devotional services, classes and retreats are held at all centers.

Ma Yoga Shakti has published several books or commentaries, including: Yoga Syzygy, Techniques of Meditation, Shri Satya Narayan Katha, Adhyaatma SandeshSpiritual Message, and Invisible Psychic Lotuses, which the mission distributes. It also publishes the Yogashakti Mission Newsletter. The address of the New York center is 114-41 Lefferts Blvd., South Ozone Park, NY 11420.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
