Every year Rishi Thondunatha goes to various Sri Lankan communities in North America and shares Gurudeva's teachings with the children and youth. Here are pictures of the programs from the summer of 2011
Aum Sivaya! We would like to get information on Rishi Thondunatha’s classes, when in Chicago? How can we get in touch with him, while he is in Chicago for classes? where does he take these classes and whats the age group? Thank you.
"Adjust yourself to the realization that you are a divine being, a self-effulgent, radiant being of light."
Jyoti is the Sanskrit word for inner light. To bestow on devotees terms that were more specific, Gurudeva developed the Shum Language of Meditation. In Shum the word for the light that lights up the mind is balikana. During Shum meditation there is an indrawing of forces to realize balikana, a moon-like glow, leading to iftye a deeper kind of inner light which, in turn, leads to milinaka, a sustained iftye which doesn't go away and can be sustained after we've finished our meditation.
