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 essence of the soul is Pure Consciousness and Absolute Reality." There are three bodies, shariras, five sheaths, koshas, an inner and an outer aura. The chakras are windows of consciousness. We can find That which has never changed, then we're deep within the soul. That's a good place to look for Parasiva.
