The training is undertaken primarily by Parvathy Baul, and sometimes other masters who come and stay for a long period at Ekathara Kalari, and train students according to the guidance and direction of Parvathyji.
A limited group of dedicated students are part of the Gurukul, learning in the traditional way of the Gurukul parampara. Baul practice is a slow and long term process that requires strict inner discipline. It is transmitted from teacher to student in a shared environment.
Baul is also known as Sahaja, which means spontaneous. Through practice, the discipline becomes natural to the Baul students.
