With observing comes Accepting ourselves...

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.

Acceptance is most important 

Accepting is one of the most important foundation principles of yoga. It means to neither pull too hard towards wants or wishes of the mind-field, nor to push away so much. It means not getting caught up in the coloring in the mind called attractions or aversions. The practice and process is called non-attachment, or vairagya.

Through observation comes acceptance
which opens the door to understanding.

While it means accepting ourselves at all of the levels, it can at first be most useful to focus on accepting our bodies and personalities. Sometimes we can be so unconsciously working to not experience our bodies, personalities, thoughts, and emotions that we do not even see the need for understanding any more, nor any need to train ourselves. 

However, when we come to the point in life that we want to explore within, to take the inner journey, we come to see the importance of accepting the realities of ourselves the way we are, so that we can then understand and effect change. 

Gradually this acceptance, or non-attachment expands to all the levels and aspects of our being. This acceptance comes as a result of gently observing ourselves, and sets the stage for greater understanding and self-training.

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.
