Miri Piri Academy

The Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan founded Miri Piri Academy in 1997. As he explained it, Miri Piri Academy is an educational institution committed to creating an environment that fosters mastery of the mind, elevation of the spirit, and gives the experience of the depth and power of the being. Through applying the lifestyle teachings of Sikh Dharma, the technology and science of Kundalini Yoga, and a rigorous academic program, we create a generation of Human beings who shall live as such and through their service, shape the destiny of this earth.

Teaching Tomorrow’s Leaders

Located in Amritsar, India MPA is an international school for students from grade 5-12. They offer a British curriculum for day-boarders and residential students. The student body represents 39+ nations, speaks 10+ languages and are part of all of the world’s major religions.

MPA strives to teach the habits of living well and to provide experiences that lead students to a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them.

MPA is a training ground where students learn to be free from fear, the confines of the mind and the restrictions of society and family environments. It is a place where a child can experience their internal strength, where they can learn the daily life habits and be equipped with the tools to be prosperous, healthy, content, wise and impactful leaders of the global community. It is a place where they can have the longing to belong fulfilled once and for all, so that they can bring that sense of belonging out into their lives and guide others to that experience. It is a place where we learn to live as a community that lives FOR each other, to serve and support each other through any challenge, and to develop the seven steps to happiness: commitment, character, dignity, divinity, grace, power to sacrifice = happiness.
