Our Story

Genesis of Damaru

Damaru is a symbol of cosmic genesis as well as dissolution. It is the universal sound out of which, the creation manifested itself. And whenever sound touches us, it transforms us completely! That’s the endeavor at Damaru - to transform individuals whose life it touches!

Damaru is like a constellation of tools and techniques coming together, where Mauli takes a case based approach, customizing a personal regime unique for each individual, using a wide range of modalities that she has mastered over years.

With its foundations in authentic traditional Yogic practices backed by cutting edge scientific research, Damaru was conceived in the lap of Himalayas, high up in Dharamkot, in July 2016 as a flash of insight to Mauli Bavisker. Inspired by her own self transformational journey and practice of over 18 years, set her sights on sharing her knowledge of these ancient techniques for achieving complete Wellbeing and Vibrance among one and all.

Our Approach to Wellness

"As many people, that many ways"

There are six major paths or philosophies in the Indian tradition and one is free to choose the path that appeals the most. Even in the source text of Raja Yoga, the YogaSutras, Patanjali gives multiple paths to reach the same goal. Similarly at Damaru, that no one method can suit all. So we use various modalities and approaches that work on body, mind, emotions and energies to reach the desired goal of wellness.

Mauli strongly believes that as much important it is for science and spirituality to function hand in hand, it is equally important to stay away from the current so called new age fads and superficial techniques, and stay firmly rooted in the traditional wisdom that has stood the test of time over the ever changing social fabric for more than 6000 years.

With more than 18 years of self practice, and 8 years into teaching, Mauli now has a nack of identifying what works best for whom. She customizes the practices using multiple tools and methodologies so that, together, they are most effective for the practitioner.
