The Teaching Yoga Forgot
Questioning the nature of existence, asking ‘WHO AM I?’, Self-Knowledge gives the complete answer. Revived by Adi Shankara 2500 years ago आत्मा ज्ञानम् ATMA GNANAM is the direct path to Self-Realisation. Answering the question of existence and what it means to be human आत्मा ज्ञानम् ATMA GNANAM breaks the barrier of time to reveal the immutability and changeless nature of the ever present Self shining eternally as ‘I’, ATMAN. Hallowed and hidden in orthodoxy, prior to India’s modern revivalist movement translating the teaching and methodology into English, Atma Gnanam was not available.
As the seer of time, throughout the ages Self outshines and outlives everything. That the knowledge of Self and the method of teaching still survives is testimony to its profound nature and to the endurance of human spirit.
Successfully uplifting and resolving the problem of human suffering through countless generations, known as Anadhigata – knowledge which is not available from any other source and Abhadita – knowledge which once gained is never subject to cancellation, traditionally only taught in Sanskrit to single males, even today, finding a Self-Knowledge teacher educated in the tradition, fluent in its methodology is rare.
Taught by Bhagavan Krsna to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Ghita, the teaching of आत्मा ज्ञानम् ATMA GNANAM is the flowering of the human being in the knowledge of their Divine nature.

Knowledge for the i generation
For the wave to even appear separate from ocean, the whole ocean has to be there. For us to appear separate from the Creation, the whole Creation needs to be there and has to come into existence first!
How to deal with the appearance and our notions of separation is what Self-Knowledge is all about and here to teach us.
Yoga for the i-generation. For Self-Knowledge no practice or exercise is needed.
Just like the wave, already perfect, already whole and complete, already being married to the ocean, needs nothing to complete itself (it can’t avoid being ocean!) so nothing is needed to make you more your best whole and complete Self than you are already.
Ignorance being all that stands in the way; knowledge – Self-Knowledge fixes it.
Gaining a prepared mind as a student has always been the job of the teacher and teachings. To know the Truth of oneself, a person needs to be prepared to accept the truth. Called mumukshutwam or adhikari, once a person has a prepared mind, drowning in an ocean of truth already, the person can’t avoid the truth.
Getting in a crisis is all part of the equation. Crisis by giving birth to the seeker meeting the teacher gives birth to the student. The role of student prepares us to accept the inevitable. Already questioning, sick of the constant roller coaster ride of life, all out of options surviving, the one crisis needing fixing is ‘I’.
If you want to solve the crisis and mystery of this ‘I’ come and join us at one of our events or contact us personally.
