The Value of Truth
The more access you have to the absolute value of truth, then the more expansive will be the relative value of truth available to your consciousness. You are truthful to yourself; you are not lying to yourself anymore. Satya, the state of truth. The unchanging value of Self. Sat, pure consciousness, silence. Why is it silent? Because it contains no vocabulary, no language. All our vocabulary, all our languages, are just our attempts to explain the silence, to explain the knowledge held in silence.
The language of truth is silence. The greater the silence vibrating in you, the greater your access to the unchanging value of truth. This silence is full. This silence is brilliant. The most important practice is being truthful to yourself. Don’t worry about speaking the truth to the world, because even if you speak the truth to the world, what they hear is up to them. You cannot control what people understand once you have uttered something. Words cannot contain truth.
- Anand in This Is That, Sutra 2:30
The Silence that is Nature
As you look out into nature, it never ceases to amaze how much intelligence there is embedded within the silence that exists within nature. The intelligence of nature which creates this magnificent play of diversity is held within the silence that is nature. The design of the tree is held within the silence of the seed. And you see, all of us are as much nature as the seed. We are as much nature as the tree. We are as much nature as the birds. We come through nature into nature.
So at the silent core of our own being is an incredible level of intelligence. That is one of the great opportunities of these times − to really dive deep within that silence within our Self. For that’s where you find intelligence, you see. Just like the intelligence that you perceive all around you, in these trees, in these mountains, in the river. There is an intelligent field there which is constantly expressed in this magnificent play of diversity. That intelligent field is as much embedded in you. And if we can take our awareness to that level of intelligence, we’ll find great strength, great freedom. So dive deep within the silence and get in touch with that field of pure intelligence.

Sattva Course Highlights
Best YTT Course in Rishikesh, India
Sattva Meditation is a kriya-based, mantra-based system. It is a seated meditation practice, a technique emerging out of the Himalayan Yog-Vedantic Tradition. When practiced 20-30 minutes twice daily, it can benefit all aspects of oneself.
- The only intention of Sattva Meditation is to access pure silence.
- Himalayan Meditation is a comprehensive, simple and effective technique which consists of Kriya and Mantra.
- Kriya instills presence and awakens the inner Master.
- Mantra allows the mind to become still and clear. It cancels out all other sounds/thoughts.
- The greater access you have to the field of Silence, the greater access you have to Nature’s Intelligence.
- It is important that the meditation practice is silent (no music/guided), regular (twice daily) and consistent (not changing).
- The most important element of setting is to create and maintain a strong energetic space in which to practice meditation.
Without breath, there is no yoga. When we breathe as a practice, it becomes an exploration as to how our breath affects us and how we can affect our breath. Students learn to breathe consciously. We derive more of our energy from breathing than from the food we eat, yet few of us have ever been trained in how to optimize our own breathing.
Modern research now is beginning to discover the fundamentals of the physiology of breath. This research confirms what the yogis and rishis have known for ages.
At Sattva Yoga Academy, every student learns many pranayama practices and breath kriyas to refine their own breath and their access to greater and greater energy.
Asanas are a vital part of the practice of Yoga, balancing and enhancing the physical structure of the body. It is important to realise that asanas are a vital part of the authentic integrated practice of Yoga, yet one’s practice should not emphasize that one aspect of Yoga over all others.
Each yoga pose that one takes has a definite intention and particular benefits. Poses can be dynamic, static, or move with a vinyasa flow from one posture to another. The deep, penetrating effect of a pose can vary depending upon the way it is practiced. During Yoga Journeys and in classes dedicated to the principles of alignment and movement and proper execution of the poses, the students at Sattva Yoga Academy become proficient practitioners of asana.
The practice of Kriyas is an important one that requires a person to have an integrated practice to experience evolution. Whereas it takes 30 minutes for an asana pose to have a deep, penetrating effect, with kriyas it takes just minutes. Kriyas may be breath kriyas or mantra kriyas. The intention and benefits of each kriya are clearly defined in the Sattva Yoga classes. Most kriyas have a minimal duration to support the intended effect. Transformative experiences often arise during kriya practice.
Everything is ultimately Kundalini, meaning everything that we perceive is an expression of Shakti. Through progressing, through living through time, human beings can start having access to that power by refining their state of consciousness, refining their perception, refining their Being, refining the nervous system, while at the same time, activating, accessing greater and greater value of that infinite potential.
The practice of Sattva Kundalini Kriya is a tool for people to increase their ability to hold, sustain and transmit increasing energy of Kundalini which occurs as a result of the integrated practices of Yoga. Kundalini is the infinite potential of being. Every being has infinite potential. It is very natural that the Kundalini energy will awaken as our state of consciousness and awareness are refined.
