Grounded in Authentic Wisdom
Vishoka Meditation is grounded in the authentic wisdom of ancient, yet living, tradition embodied by luminaries including Buddha, Patanjali, and a long line of Siddha masters. Drawing upon both yoga and tantra, Vishoka Meditation shares the essence of ancient source texts including the Yoga Sutra, Lotus Sutra, and Shiva Sutra.
Passed down for thousands of years, the practice of Vishoka Meditation was distilled for the 21st-century practitioner by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph.D., a modern-day master and spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute.
