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 time barrier to reveal the immutable changeless nature of the ever present Self shining eternally as ‘I’, ATMAN. Hallowed and hidden in orthodoxy, prior to India’s modern revivalists translating the teaching and methodology into English, Atma Gnanam was not available to the commoner.
As the seer of time, Self outshines and outlives everything. That Self-Knowledge and its method of teaching still survives is testimony to its profound nature and tenacity of the human spirit.
Successfully uplifting and resolving the problem of human suffering throughout the generations, known as Anadhigata – knowledge which can not be gained 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 nothing less than 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 exist. For us to appear separate from the Creation, the whole Creation needs to be there and had to come into existence first!
Already married to the ocean the wave doesn’t need to learn how to be ocean. It only needs to let go its ignorance.
How to deal with the appearance and notions of separation is what Self-Knowledge is here to teach us.
Yoga for the i-generation. For Self-Knowledge no practice or exercise is needed.
Just like the wave, already perfect, whole and complete as it is needs nothing to complete itself and become part of ocean, so nothing is needed to make you more your best whole and complete Self than you are already.
