These are the levels of Being...

Yoga meditation is the art and science of systematically 
observing, accepting, understanding, and training 
each of the levels of our being, 
such that we may coordinate and integrate 
those aspects of ourselves, 
and dwell in the direct experience 
of the center of consciousness.

Levels of our being: 

Balance and train all of
our various ways of "being"

  • We are human beings. 
  • We are physical beings. 
  • We are breathing beings. 
  • We are sensing beings.
  • We are thinking beings. 
  • We are feeling beings. 
  • We are intuitive beings. 
  • We are spiritual beings.

What these all have in common is that "We are Beings." Yet, paradoxically, who we truly are is none of theses "beings". 

We want each of these, individually, to be balanced and trained so as to not disturb our peace or tranquility. Then, in silence, we want to go beyond each of these, to the center of our Being. 

There is a metaphor of the lotus flower, which may live in a swamp, but grows upwards, out of the swamp, as it opens its petals to the world. This is how we can be through meditation. We see that while we are physical, breathing, sensing, thinking, feeling, spiritual beings, we also remember our true nature which is beyond, or deeper.

This site is devoted to presenting the ancient Self-Realization path of the Tradition of the Himalayan masters in simple, understandable and beneficial ways, while not compromising quality or depth. The goal of our sadhana or practices is the highest Joy that comes from the Realization in direct experience of the center of consciousness, the Self, the Atman or Purusha, which is one and the same with the Absolute Reality. This Self-Realization comes through Yoga meditation of the Yoga Sutras, the contemplative insight of Advaita Vedanta, and the intense devotion of Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra, the three of which complement one another like fingers on a hand. We employ the classical approaches of Raja, Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti Yoga, as well as Hatha, Kriya, Kundalini, Laya, Mantra, Nada, Siddha, and Tantra Yoga. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer finally converge into a unified force directed towards the final stage, piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the Absolute.
