Meditative Mandalas of Vidya Shankar

Hari Om 🙏I made this mandala a couple of months ago when physical classes resumed. There were only three or four of us in the Paduka hall, the rest were boxes on the computer. It was not always like this. There was a time when we would all gather, not as in a social setting, but in our own individual spheres, pursuing our own motives for doing yoga, according to our individual capabilities. Yet the energy that reverberated in the hall was of one single soul. This mandala is my representation of that reverberation. In spite of the differences, there …

Aim of the Prathama Shibiram!

From the Desk of Shiva Rishi Hari Om Since I started the basic course module, I’ve been wondering what is the aim of this course & what are the benefits that one can get? Since I started teaching Simplified Kundalini Yoga in 1993, I was an immature and impatient teacher. From 1993 to about 2000 several intense initiatives were taken by me to reach out to as many people to introduce them to the spiritual tradition. To my shock & surprise not even 5% were continuing practice, which I realized when I interacted with them. As many as 7000 people …
