  • Thinking of Becoming a Tattvika?

      What are Tattvikas? Tattvikas are spiritual teachers and guides. They are grounded in spiritual and social philosophy as given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti so that they can teach it to others. Yama and niyama and the 15  Shiilas guide their behavior, and they serve as a moral example for others. From this core they give initiation in meditation and work with initiates to assimilate spiritual practices and acquire discipline. Tattvikas are dynamic individuals that contribute to the upliftment of society and to building spiritual communities. Community-building activities that reinforce spiritual growth and social connectedness include local dharmacakras, retreats, and other community activities. Most importantly, tattvikas are compassionate. And they have developed the expertise to guide others on the path. Tattvika Training Tattvika training is a three-part program. Part 1 is an online course that introduces the philosophy of Shrii Shrii Anandamurti. This consists of three parts: an introduction to spiritual philosophy, a review of the social philosophy, and a highly interactive program on ethics and morality. These will be taught and facilitated by senior acharyas whose grounding in the philosophy is among the best on the planet. Part 2 is a 10-day intensive immersion where there will be talks on the philosophical underpinnings of the mission in an environment of ample kiirtan and sadhana. This will be the opportunity to move the intellectual understanding gained from the online courses into a deeper understanding and commitment that emanates from the soul. Part 3 is a 4-day program in which each tattvika demonstrates their understanding of the philosophical base and receives instruction on initiation.
