- Vedanta Quest - In Quest of Truth
Dedicated to the Advaita Vedanta Philosophy of Adi Shankaracharya - the website of Dr. Narendra Tuli. "For more then a decade I studied the Upanishads under the guidance of my Guru H.H. Swami Vidyananda Giri Ji Maharaj. This ... opened up an entirely new dimension of visualizing the triad of the subject, object and the process of perception. I discovered that the principles of ‘Modern Science’ and those of the ‘Scriptural Philosophy’ were not mutually contradictory, but were rather complementary to each other. This saw the birth of ‘Scientific Spirituality’ - a ‘thought’ that I wanted to share with all. My quest for Truth has made me richer in my ‘empirical’ and ‘transcendental’ experiences. It has not only given me the complete solution to the mystery of existence, but has also opened the doors of my mind to universal brother-hood, compassion and mutual respect for all beings that inhabit and share this beautiful planet - the Earth. I pray to the Almighty for the well-being of All."

Sage Ramana Maharshi of Arunachala
Ashram for Ramana Maharshi at Arunachala, India
The great sage Ramana Maharshi was first made known to the world by Paul Brunton in the book: A Search in Secret India. The self enlightened sage radiated a profound peace so powerful that even undeveloped aspirants fell into samadhi sitting in his powerful presence. His greatest teaching was to go beyond the mind through the "Who am I Really" inquiry to the source and origin of thoughts, thus stopping in its tracks the ever active mind to reveal the silent truth of the underlying Universal Self. Available on the web site are books about the Maharshi, anecdotes by his chief disciples, back issues of the Maharshi and The Mountain Path periodicals, life summary, photos, music clips, videos, and online books available for downloading.

Turiya Yoga - Inspired by the Siddhar Sages Journeying Beyond Enlightenment!
Near the peak of sacred mountain Thiruvannamalai at 3 AM, Nandhi was sitting outside the cave listening to Ayya sing in his Divine voice. The Sage, Ayya, had been, and still is, meditating in his cave without moving for 17 years drinking just a cup of milk a day. He lives in a realm of existence called “Turiya”, a higher consciousness that transcends the need to sleep or eat and is unbound by the laws of the physical world. Ayya was in ecstasy as he sang through the night. Nandhi quietly wished deep in his heart for this ancient resonance of the heart’s song to be brought out to the world. In fulfillment, Nandhi was directed to America where a confluence of extraordinary musicians were inspired to create the Turiya Nada CD. Hear the haunting music which awakens the spiritual force within, see the painted visions of Nandhi, inspired by the sages within the sacred mountain. Explore Turiya Yoga from one whose guru was, in a former life, Ramana Maharshi.

- Gopi Krishna -Kundalini Force - Teachings, Excerpts, Books
Gopi Krishna published his first major book in India, Kundalini--The Evolutionary Energy in Man. It has since appeared in eleven major languages. The book presented to the Western world for the first time a clear and concise autobiographical account of the phenomenon of the forceful awakening of Kundalini, which he had experienced in 1937. Gopi Krishna's experiences led him to hypothesize that there is a biological mechanism in the human body, known from ancient times in India as Kundalini, which is responsible for creativity, genius, psychic abilities, religious and mystical experiences, as well as some types of aberrant mental states...
Ammachi, Embracing the World
As a child Ammachi constantly repeated the name of God. Her mind was filled always with Divine thoughts and her feelings were swept with tears of ecstatic devotion. Though she was harassed for her strangeness she eventually developed a huge following of people she helped just through her presence. She travels the world embracing thousands of people who feel as if they are in the presence of a Divine Loving Mother. She awakens their latent spiritual impulses and soothes psyches battered by worldly forces.
Mother Meera, born in India, now lives in Germany where she gives darshan to visiting aspirants. Her goal and reason for taking on embodiment at this time are to bring down the light of Paramatman - the most high - onto this earth plane for the first time in its history. This potent form acts as an instrument for the flow of divine forces, assisting in the transformation and divinisation of our planet.
Prahlad Chandra Brahmachari
As a young boy growing up in rural India, Prahlad suffered a very hard life. His family never had enough to eat. He suffered many beatings at the hands of others. He used to pray often to God - why was he here? What was the purpose of his life? Then he met a strange, huge man in the wild forests of remote India. The man initiated him, told him he had a very great work to do and then left him by himself. The image of that fleeting moment came to dominate his mind and little by little his life began to improve. Eventually the simple, humble devotee himself became a saint. He made several trips to America where he met and influenced many people from the west. Read his interesting story at this web site.

"Humanity is entering the most crucial phase of its existence. The coming decade shall witness the most unprecedented and undreamt of changes in the course of its long evolution. There is nothing much humanity could do about it, other than to understand the changes occurring around it and to flow with the changes that are overpowering it. Towards the end, humanity would enter a new age, The Golden Age. The transition will be a painful process. Only those whose relationships are in order would make it easily. The Golden Age Movement has come into existence to help humanity make this transition." ---Sri Kalki (Mukteshwar), Founder, Golden Age Foundation

Welcome to the Marvellous World of Meditation
On this site, we are addressing all seekers who wish to embark on the journey towards enlightenment. People are thirsty for peace, yet they do not know how to attain it. Instead of seeking inside at the centre, they waste time wandering on the peripheries. It is indeed an irony that a vast ocean of peace is latent in every human being and constantly inviting everyone to take a plunge, yet man is in chaos. All journeys have a starting point and a destination. The starting point of the inner journey is oneself and so is the destination. By knowing thyself, all else becomes known.
