About the Author Mai Ram

Mai Ram was born in Vilnius in 1969. She studied Chemistry at Vilnius University, after starting a family and giving birth to her first daughter, Mai Ram started practising yoga intensively, while at that time yoga was not yet popular in Lithuania. A desire to find out how thinking, behaviour and body function together inspired her to enrol into Bachelor studies in Psychology in Moscow. There she gained comprehensive knowledge in anatomy, physiology, psyche, anthropology and various branches of psychology. She had been raising existential questions since childhood, was consistently striving for spiritual knowledge and showed interest in philosophy, psychology and various art practices.

The purpose
of Mai Ram Art Gallery

By purchasing works of Mai Ram Art Gallery, You are helping to build the Mai Ram Yoga ashram in India, Varanasi, a sacred city of Shiva, on the banks of Ganges river.

Varanasi is the most majestic tirtha for me. In Sanskrit, tirtha means a holy place, where divine power manifests. In this place, disciple finds a Teacher. In this place, after immersing into holy waters and performing worship as well as sacrificial rituals, the mind is cleansed and the knowing of existence manifests.

Guru Mai Ram 

Mai Ram, the Beginning

Mai Ram chose the philosophy of yoga and became a successor of classical yoga teaching, a yoga teacher. For many years, Mai Ram has devoted all her creative energy to fulfilling the purpose of her life. Mai Ram’s creations are materialised in various forms, all her ideas and works are united by one goal – the unity of consciousness and matter. Through her creative activities, Mai Ram conveys the philosophy of the unity between consciousness and matter, revealing the power of the Creator manifested in a human being. All the creative forms, shapes, used by Mai Ram in her works, reflect the infinity of human being’s creative potential.
