What is …?

This list was started to provide a tool for the people who started to work with the Yogic Self-awareness Assessment PDF, which can be downloaded here. Looking at this PDF you might be overwhelmed by all the concepts, as you may not know all of them: that’s the reason why I started this list! Looking up one word at the time will slowly make you familiar with these concepts and learn to witness them within yourself. Knowing them all will make the Yogic Self-awareness Assessment PDF a wonderful tool in your sadhana.
This part of the website is not meant to be a mere intellectual study of words, which may be useful, but will not help you so much in your practice. The understanding and practical application of the concepts indicated by the words is what is most useful to those who want to practice and gain direct experience.
I am aware that this list is not complete, nor is the content related to each entry. This part of the website is meant to be continually expanding and evolving. The goal is to provide as much insight as I can, rather than to compile a complete list. It is not my intent to present myself as a scholar, but to use my own experience in a way that may lovingly serve those who walk with me on the path of Yoga, Vedanta and the Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra of the Himalayan meditation masters.
In loving service
Swami Ma Tripurashakti (Ma Tri)

Yoga Meditation, Contemplation, and Devotion for Self-realization

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!
