Our Vision

To present the science of bhakti yoga to the TAMU community and help individuals experience and achieve a higher-level of consciousness, knowledge, well being, and happiness.

Who Are We?

We are a student club at Texas A&M’s College Station campus. Our club has been instrumental in bringing to TAMU community, the science of holistic yoga process. Yoga in the western world is typically known as a physical workout leading to flexibility and muscle tone. However, Bhakti yoga is the highest and true form of yoga that caters to not just the body but also to mind, intellect and the soul. The word 'Bhakti' itself is a word that means 'loving devotional service' and our club is devoted to help students connect with the divine within and experience the true happiness and bliss on a spiritual platform.

We also invite experienced yogis, travelling monks and distinguished speakers to discuss on various aspects of our existence such as ecology, cosmology, economics, yoga ladder, relationships, satisfaction, developing spiritual qualities, etc. We hold vegetarian cooking classes especially considering student needs and condition. Our focus is to bring about a transformation, inside-out, and working on the ecology of the heart.

Our Motto

Our motto is to help 'Integrate body, mind and soul. Integrate your existence.'

Food Philosophy


Just like when you fall sick, you take prescribed medicines and rest to regain health, and you avoid certain things. Similarly, in practice of bhakti yoga (any yoga or practice for that matter) there are some do's and don'ts that are prescribed. According to yoga texts (Ayurvedic texts, Yogasutras, Bhagavad Gita), foods are classified into sattva (goodness), rajas (passion) and tamas (ignorance) and we try to eat only foods in goodness (like grains, vegetables, fruits, milk). We avoid foods that include meat, fish, eggs, mushrooms, coffee, tea and chocolate (due to caffeine). One may ask Why do we do that? The simple answer is - to quieten our mind in order to access the spiritual or higher consciouness nature within.

Vegan Cooking Class


We conduct Vegetarian Vegan cooking class for the students of Texas A&M University and residents of Bryan - College Station as a part of the TAMU BHAKTI YOGA CLUB. Our goal is not just to promote vegetarianism but bring back the culture of eating - moving from an impersonal super market based, mass-produced things that looks like food, made by a disgruntled under-paid employee, to something that you participate in, share with and get nourishment from. Our theme is to keep things simple, practical and healthy. Our groups are typically small (<20) to enable easy hands on cooking experience and personal interaction. The pay back for us is the relationships we built on the way, greater appreciation for different cultures and the satisfaction that we could positively contribute to heathy wellbeing of an individual and our planet.
