Genesis of the ashram
The story of Lilleoru began in 1992 with Ingvar Villido’s raja and buddhi yoga courses. After a while Ingvar together with a group of yoga students started to establish a centre for learning. During almost 20 years hundreds of volunteers have helped to build Lilleoru and today it is an open learning and living environment supporting the holistic development of human being.
A unique park expands in the heart of Lilleoru based on the ancient pattern of creation - the Flower of Life. The park with the surrounding landscape unites the heritage of various cultures and symbolises our true nature, the universal wisdom and harmony that are intrinsic to us as human beings.
Lilleoru became an ashram of Haidakhan Babaji since 2002, following Babaji´s universal teachings of truth, simplicity and love.
The temple is dedicated to the omnipresent and omniscient principle of ultimate Teacher or Guru. The statue or murti in the temple is Maha Munindra, expressing Eternal Wisdom.
Aaratis are Havans are performed regularly and also Spring and Autumn Navaratris celebrated.
Babaji’s Kriya Yoga came to Lilleoru in 2004. It is an ancient and authentic lineage of teaching, a path of concsious self-transformation, with the goal to realize one’s true Self and to lead one’s life with awareness. Ingvar Villido (Ishwarananda), Lilleoru’s founder, is a teacher of Babaji’s Kriya Yoga, belonging to the Babaji’s Kriya Yoga Order of Acharyas.
Inner and outer ecology go hand in hand. The way of life in Lilleoru is simple and ecological, well in balance with the surrounding natural environment. Since 2006, Lilleoru is a full member of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN-Europe) and Estonian Ecovillage Movement. A small SkyEarth ecovillage is under construction next to Lilleoru.
