Seek Self-realization at All Cost
The joy of hearing a set of words that embraced the process of allowing everything in life to be directed to realize the Self. At first the sentence struck me as: “No matter what is needed to seek Self-realization, DO IT.” In a world where the majority is mostly not interested in realizing the Self, these words felt like a long longed for “permission” to go against everything, to not be stopped by anything, to do whatever it takes! Which may come across as “Do whatever it takes to seek Self-realization; even pushing against someone or something if it stands in the way”. But, this is of course not what it means, that would be himsa—violence. Do whatever it takes to be FREEEEE within ahimsa—non-violence. Later the sentence deepened to what I think it truly contains, namely: “Literally everything has to GO to seek Self-realization.” Are you willing to pay the most expensive price to seek Self-realization? The cost of ALL that you think you are. If you can pay that, the Self stands alone, and the Self is realized.
What is standing between the present moment and the realization of the Self? The Self is always here, so what is hiding it? read more

Bindu means point or dot; the word is derived from the root verb ‘bhid’ or ‘bhind’, which means to burst, to break through. Piercing, breaking, or bursting through the bindu (bindu vedhana) is the last stage of practice. But at this point it can hardly be called practice, since only grace is involved. The bindu is the transition point from duality into Pure Consciousness. The bindu is the doorway beyond or out of the mind, because the concept or phenomenon of bindu is; the point out of which time, space, causality and all other concepts manifested. The bindu is point out of which multiplicity seems to expand. Thus finding your way back to the bindu is finding your way back to the edge of space, time and apparent manifestation; which is not an edge but a point. The concept of bindu can be found in several mystical writing as the yogis, mystics, tantrics, and sages who have experienced Pure Consciousness, speak of encountering this point–for example symbolized as a mustard seed–because there is no other way out! The bindu is the center of the Sri Yantra and the dot in the symbol of AUM. read more

This site is an offering to those who deeply long to experience Pure Consciousness that is known as Divine Mother or Tripura (‘Tri’ means three, and ‘pura’ means city); She is the one that lives in the three cities of Waking, Dreaming and Deep Sleep. Temporary leaving behind the three cities and residing only in Pure Consciousness is called Self-realization. Another name for this realization is Yoga; the union of the individual self with the universal Self; the union of Atman with Brahman, or Shiva with Shakti; or the dis-union of Purusha and Prakriti. Some might think of Tripura as an anthropomorphic being but She is not, She is the Non-dual Reality in which all appearing manifestation seems to exist. All that is, is the Non-dual Reality.
On this site the teachings of Yoga, Vedanta, and Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra are offered to guide you in learning to meditate directly on Tripura by using modern ways of communication such as through animations, while preserving the ancient wisdom. These teaching have been given to us by an ancient lineage of meditation masters, lovingly called the Tradition of the Himalayan masters. These practices lead us to a space of stillness and silence where Yoga meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer converge into deep devotion and constant awareness of Tripura. At the end of the journey when all efforts are exhausted, grace will dawn. This is known as shaktipata, through which the final barrier is removed, which is the piercing of the bindu, and leads to the direct experience of Non-dual Reality. This finally reveals an unimaginable Joy from knowing the Non-dual Reality or Pure Consciousness!
