"The heart is the hub of all sacred spaces, go there and roam"Bhagwan Nityananda
The ancient teachings of Tantra have always been pointing to the pure awareness which is the sacred core of all creation, this is the inner light that radiates through all life. It is this light that draws us to little children, it is this light that we fall in love within our beloved, it is this light that moves us to seek the divine.
The ancient masters called it ‘Hridayam’, the radiant heart of life. Here they are not referring to the heart chakra rather to a deeper subtler center of consciousness which is the key to one’s inner life and the tantric path is one that offers many powerful tools of contacting this space.
"I have visited in my wanderings shrines and other places of pilgrimage, But I have not seen another shrine blissful like my own body"Mahasiddha Saraha
The Tantric journey is not a long struggle to go beyond our limitations by the sheer force of exertion, rather is a delightful path of self-discovery. It is not about achieving some fixed state but to deepen into this blissful heart of awareness.
“All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that even the ocean merges into the drop”Kabir
This inner heart is the sacred ground where the individual and the universe meet. Step by step, we move closer to who we truly are and our life becomes a joyful expression of this discovery.
Held as the pinnacle teachings of the Tantra Yoga tradition, these series of advanced yogic practices have for long been kept hidden with only spare references given in some Tantric texts. Meant to be shared only within the safety of a guru-disciple relationship, the Tantra Kriyas provide an extraordinary path to transformation.
Unlike the approach of Classical Yoga, no attempt is made to work with the mind, instead higher states of energy are awakened which lead to a totally different level of consciousness where the chatter of the surface mind becomes irrelevant. In this radical approach of transformation, instead of seeking to concentrate the mental faculty, we systematically dismantle the limiting forces within the mind.
We practice a number of individual techniques simultaneously, thus engaging several aspects of self at the same time. We combine pranayama (breathing practices), mantra (sacred sound), nadi and chakra (subtle body) and mudra and bandha (neuromuscular locks) all done together in a seated posture.
These practices converge all the energies, gross and subtle, into a ‘Bindu’ in the middle of the mandala of one’s being. This is the gateway to meditation.

“As a result of daily this practice I have seen changes in all areas of my personal and work life. It has increased my stamina; I can work longer and get less tired. I am glad that I am now able to reach to a sense of inner stability quickly. It’s easy for me to "let go of" any worrying situations. I adopted this method because it is a very dynamic one and matches my rhythm of life.”- Dr. Irina Tatarnikova

“I am pleased to share the effect of the practice. I must admit, it was a big break: unforeseen health problems. But after the break, the positive effect has simply poured into many aspects of my everyday life. I want to share the most important thing that I felt most clearly. Through practice, I found inner stability, which has allowed me to decide on a career change. So, I decided not only within, but also took a step toward this dream.”- Alexandra

“I am so grateful to Sadashiva for teaching me the practices which helped me to connect to myself and my baby during pregnancy. He helped me experience the most sacred space inside me. It gives you a sense of deep fulfillment to be able to create a healthy and nurturing space for your baby. Thank you so much for making this transformation of women to mother so joyful. I highly recommend this programme for any mama to be.”- Jaswinder Kaur

Out of the different ways in which the practices touched my life, the most profound was my relationship with my daughter. The practice slowly helped develop clarity in the way I received her, in the way I saw her. My daughter is a person with special needs and raising her came with its own share of challenges. A regular and steady practice helped me slow down and take more charge of the present. I was able to observe, understand and respond to her in ways that could help her grow. To be able to hone the capacity to intuitively connect, communicate, love and transform a child is probably the greatest gift I could have received as a mother and the practices opened this up and they continue to do so!- Lakshmi Singh
