SSY stands for 'Siddha Samadhi Yoga' (often expanded as ‘Science of Silence Yoga’) where Siddha means ‘something (i.e., knowledge) that is proven or accomplished’, Samadhi means ‘a state in  which the intellect is equanimous’ and Yoga means ‘union with one’s higher self’. SSY is the fundamental knowledge of life. Ancient rishis had formulated a unique mode of training called Brahmopadesam, which is an instruction on the science of non-doing and experiencing stillness within and abundance without. It brings about a sea change in one’s outlook towards life and effects remarkable maturity in the individual. SSY is nothing but the present-day version of this ancient science of Brahmopadesam.
