Our monastery has been watching the inner growth of our new monastics with pride. We, more than anyone else, know how challenging, intense and immensely rewarding this path is.
This is Sadhaka Tandavanatha.
Gurudeva said, in his inimitable way, that “The group helps the individual and the individual helps the group.” Their commitment to inner unfoldment, their humility and dedication, are a help to the monastery as a whole.

As anyone on the path knows, destinations are often a surprise to the destined. Sadhana takes us to an inner reality that has always been there, but amazes us all the same.
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
