Living Tantra

Living Tantra™ is designed to ensure that distance does not come between the student and the teacher.

Why is Tantra so important in the 21st century? How can Tantra compliment the study and practice of Yoga, Ayurveda, and other forms of health and healing? Why are promises made by texts and teachers of all traditions not being fulfilled? Tantra has answers to these questions, and can provide the tools and means necessary to ensure these promises are fulfilled.

Pandit Rajmani Tigunait

Spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute, Pandit Tigunait is the successor of Swami Rama of the Himalayas. Lecturing and teaching worldwide for more than a quarter of a century, he is the author of fourteen books, including his recently-released The Secret of the Yoga Sutra, and his autobiography Touched by Fire: The Ongoing Journey of a Spiritual Seeker. Pandit Tigunait holds two doctorates: one in Sanskrit from the University of Allahabad in India, and another in Oriental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. Family tradition gave Pandit Tigunait access to a vast range of spiritual wisdom preserved in both the written and oral traditions. Before meeting his master, Pandit Tigunait studied Sanskrit, the language of the ancient scriptures of India, as well as the languages of the Buddhist, Jaina, and Zorastrian traditions. In 1976, Swami Rama ordained Pandit Tigunait into the 5,000-year-old lineage of the Himalayan Masters.
