Whatever we love most, sanctifying and worshiping that alone, we make it our god.
Called our Ishta Deva or Devata, our Ishta can be anything. Dragging us like a huge magnet to the Truth,
when we are with our beloved Ishta, we are at peace and with our true selves.
At our most powerful
Self-Knowledge – The Teaching Mankind Almost Forgot.
We are all the son’s and daughters of immortality.
As human being’s nothing limits us.
Because no other teaching but Self-knowledge, (called ATMA VIDYA आत्मा विद्या,) has repeatedly, throughout the ages and civilisations of mankind, pointed this out and taught us about our limitless changeless nature, it has survived.
Through the ocean of time, especially in times of crisis, generation after generation has benefited from this wisdom.
We are not the first to question our existence and wanted to know the truth of who we are. Nor will we be the last. Having uplifted countless generations of human beings before us, once the teaching threatened to disappear 2500 years ago, to stop it becoming extinct and to ensure it’s survival for future generations, India’s great revivalist and saint, Adi Shankara (509–477 BCE), dedicated his life to its revival.
Thinking by keeping it secret they could safeguard the teachings, after Shankara, priests kept Self-knowledge so secret, it became a secret even to themselves. Becoming hidden in religious taboo and orthodoxy, had it not been for India’s modernists who revived the teaching and rediscovered it’s methodology in the 20th century, today Self-knowledge could have been a lost teaching.
Dragging ‘enlightenment’ out of the dark ages, what has always been the preserve of yogi monk’s, saints and sages throughout history and only available to those knew sanskrit is now being taught in English. Translating what has never had an equivalent in any other language, ATMA VIDYA आत्मा विद्या is now being taught in English to primary school children in India.
Not too long ago a child able to read and write would have been thought exceptional. Now every child by the age of eight years old is expected to read and write or thought to have a learning disability.
Soon, with the advent of Self-knowledge in schools, anyone not knowing their true eternal nature as a human being will be the exception.
Especially with the advent of AI (artificial intelligence). As machines threaten to replace and outpace human beings, anyone not knowing their true nature as unlimited, pure consciousness – the quickness itself, quicker than the speed of thought, will be at an enormous disadvantage and left behind.
Have you have ever questioned and wanted to know your true nature and truth of your existence?
Have you have ever wished the stars could speak?
Have you ever wanted answers knowing which there are no more questions?
Let the knowledge that is eternal speak to you through the timeless teaching of Self-knowledge.
Share in the ageless wisdom that has throughout the centuries been responsible upending all suffering for countless generations. Using sanskrit as little as possible, (unless the concept doesn’t exist in English), our popular ‘live’ online courses in Self-knowledge as well live retreat gatherings are available worldwide.
