Shortcut to Self-Realization
by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati 

While it is true that there are many paths up the spiritual mountain to Self-Realization, the thing they all have in common is that one must climb, and that the direction to climb is up, not across. There really is a shortcut to Self-Realization, and that is to follow the direct route inward, through the layers, to the center of consciousness

There are many paths:  There is a short cut: 





There are many paths up the spiritual mountain to Self-Realization. 

Many of those paths emphasize the view at one or more of the lower levels along the journey to the top. 

Some get lost along the way. 

The shortcut is to climb directly through the levels of the mountain. 

It means systematically dealing with our relationships with the world, and our senses, body, breath, and mind.

Then one comes to the Summit.  

To say that there is a shortcut does not mean that there is one organization, institution, teacher, tradition, or method that is the single way to enlightenment. Rather, it is the way in which one travels the journey, and the commitment to not stop at some pleasant plateau that has a nice view. 

It is the dedication, determination, sankalpa shakti, to systematically walk in a steady, straight line, into and through all of the levels of our being, which are nothing but false identities, covering over, or clouding our true Self, like lampshades over the Light. This is the way of Yoga Meditation.

It doesn't mean the straight line is always straight. There are bumps and jolts, twists and turns, but the conviction is steady and straight. 

This shortcut is the path that is recommended by the sages of the Himalayan tradition, for those who are ready to know themselves at all levels.



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.
