“‘Kaula’ is a Sanskrit term, which essentially means a spiritual family who are devoted to life-affirmative Tantra methods in service of spiritual liberation. The merging of spirit and matter, Shiva and Shakti, is actualized through Kaula practices. Ma Ananda Sarita, having received a direct transmission from Osho and with the wisdom which comes from a life dedicated to meditation, shares her passion for Tantra with those who are open to receive and integrate the offering. This ignites a fire of transmission and communion; a love affair leading to new evolutionary consciousness.
Our Tantra Essence Kaula is made up of dedicated, vibrant, talented Tantra Teachers from all over the world, who have apprenticed with me for years and / or taken part in my two – year Tantra Teacher Training. These are teachers you can trust who are rooted in authentic Tantra based in the practice of meditation and who hold clear ethical boundaries. Tantra is a multidimensional approach to spiritual awakening and in order to teach it effectively teachers must have passed through a fire of personal transformation in all dimensions of their being. It is my great honour and delight that our Kaula family are united in offering the very best calibre of Tantra to all who are interested in personal development and self-transformation on the path of Tantra.”
“Philosophically, Kaula is said to represent a unifying connectedness, beneath the various objects, processes and living entities of this world”… “The key to the effectiveness of group practice is held to reside in the harmony of minds and hearts of the participant. When a compatible spiritual group is created, it can greatly accelerate the spiritual evolution of its members… such a group can enter a state of oneness and universal consciousness without effort.” Source: New World Encyclopedia on the Kaula
