Through observing and accepting come Understanding...

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.

Understanding means experiencing 

Understanding does not mean mere intellectual understanding. It is like the difference between the intellectual understanding of how to parachute, and the direct experience of jumping out of the plane (though our understanding need not be quite this dramatic).

Through repeated observation and acceptance
 comes ever increasing understanding.

We may have an extremely superficial understanding that we are physical, breathing, and thinking beings. This is not the kind of understanding which we are referring to here through internal observation and acceptance.

We may study about the physical body, the breathing apparatus, and the brain in anatomy books or classes, but this too is not the kind of understanding we are talking about.

This kind of understanding comes from the direct observation and acceptance of the various levels of our being, and is unique compared to other kinds of knowledge. It comes from examination of ourselves as if we are both laboratories and interior researchers, using the tools of attention and non-attachment, or acceptance.

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.
