Teacher, Lineage, & Practices

Swami Khecaranatha (Nathaji)

With a mastery etched from five decades of disciplined inner practice and selfless service, Khecaranatha is an authentic adept in the Śakti Transmission Lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda and Swami Rudrananda.

Swami Khecaranatha teaches from his personal experience and revelations. His study of the richness and wisdom of ancient tantric scripture provides a means to articulate the teachings of his lineage within the larger context of these powerful nondual traditions—while emphasizing the essence of his teaching, which is to empower students to discover their own innate divinity.

Teachers & Lineage

A lineage is an unbroken transmission of a living spiritual force that is passed from heart to heart. It flows from one generation to the next—from a teacher to the student the teacher wishes to initiate as a lineage carrier. Whether the initiation is an elaborate ceremony or simply the words of the teacher spoken to the heart of the person being initiated, it is the power of initiation that installs the seed of the living force in the recipient. Although this force manifests within a teacher, this living energy is greater than that which is carried within any person. A lineage carrier serves that force. Read more...

Kuṇḍalinī Sādhana

Kuṇḍalinī is the energy and essence of life, and Kuṇḍalinī Sādhana is the practice of becoming aware of that essence. As the kuṇḍalinī arrives at its destination of the sahasrāra, the energetic center known as the thousand-petaled lotus at the top of the head, we become fully aware of our total unity with the Divine. Kuṇḍalinī Sādhana is the practice of blissful dissolution of dualistic consciousness into the experience and reality of that fundamental unity. Read more...

 

Śakti Transmission

In our practice, the “open-eye class,” or śakti transmission by look, is the principal method that allows for the direct transmission from teacher to student. During class the student meets and stays in contact with the direct gaze of the teacher, allowing for the transference of energy, all while remaining in full contact with sense perceptions and in view of the material world. As an energetic flow is established between teacher and student, the student can begin to internalize the energy, creating a deep connection to the sacred space of the heart that ultimately leads to the recognition of the true nature of the Self that lies within.

Anuttura Trika Tradition

Anuttara Trika was considered by the Kashmiri Śaivites to be the most elevated teachings of all the Tantric schools—of which they were, without a doubt, the greatest exponents. The single focus and purpose of the tradition is to achieve liberation, which Trika Śaivism explains is the recognition that reality is just One. That highest reality is called Śiva, the pure conscious nature that manifests as all things. Like a light that pours forth, illumines, and pervades everything, the light of Consciousness creates all infinite manifestations. This shining of Śiva is eternal, unending, undivided, and in all ways unconditioned. What we experience in our daily lives, in every moment, is part of that immense Consciousness. Read more...
