We wish you
and your family
a very happy
Maha Sivratri 2016 !

March 6/7,
the day we celebrate the
greatest of all teachings

Siva's Great Night truly is a very great night, when we celebrate our having been graced with the final Truth of our human existence, the teaching of the Self, or Siva as Parasivam, Absolute Reality.

And we celebrate the promise of Self-Realization, when the soul directly experiences this Truth as none other than its very own Self.
It is the depth of your Being, the very core of you. It is you. — from the talk, The Self God by Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. More.

What is The Self God talk?

By October 3, 1959, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami (Gurudeva) had established in San Francisco what is believed to have been the USA's first Hindu temple. There on that day, he gave an amazingly powerful 20-minute talk which many feel encompassed Hinduism's entire thrust and ultimate teaching—and in clear, succinct, contemporary language. It was a seminal moment in Gurudeva's life's work, and the talk would become the capstone of Himalayan Academy's teachings. More.


Self & Samadhi
Hinduism's breathtaking teaching

Himalayan Academy's CD-size, 90-page Self & Samadhi is tiny in bulk and huge in substance. It consists of gems about the Self drawn from from Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami's Trilogy. For anyone interested in the subject, it is the perfect primer.

Delight in some extraordinary quotes from Self & Samadhi in this review of the book.

Gurudeva's trilogy

All about Siva,
the world, life and You

Here are all of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami's basic teachings, collected over a lifetime, all brought together in his Trilogy.

If Mahasivaratri and the teachings of the Self inspire you, then you could continue the experience with these three books, or any one of them. They are an opportunity to cultivate endless insights about Hinduism's most awesome essence—to gradually perceive more clearly who Siva is, in all His Dimensions, who you are, in all your dimensions, and what life and the world are in their many aspects and ramifications.

You may order the Trilogy, or any one of the three books here. Or read sample selections from the books, or subscribe to daily email selections here.
