The Hanuman Fellowship is a non-profit organization founded by the students of Baba Hari Dass in 1971. Baba Hari Dass is a master yogi who has dedicated his life to teaching the theory and practice of Yoga. His students formed the Hanuman Fellowship as a vehicle for the teachings of Yoga and for the variety of projects that have been developed by the Fellowship Members. Among those projects directly under the Fellowship are The Mount Madonna Center, The Pacific Cultural Center, and Gateways Books, Gifts, and Music. The Hanuman Fellowship is affiliated with Mount Madonna School and the Sri Ram Foundation and several sister groups in other areas.
