To encounter the sacred is to be alive at the deepest center of human existence.
— N. Scott Momaday

With "Finding Hrit Padma" I want to Be in Communion with you by sharing from my Own Journey into the sacred heart, wisdom others have shared, events and host workshops that I hope Open our Eyes, ears & Hearts to the mysterious.

May you feel nourished by these offerings on your own journey to Hrit Padma - the doorstep of the Mystical heart.

Mystical scriptures of all traditions and mystics speak of the Sacred Heart. Jesus taught "the kingdom of God is within" you” in Luke 17:21, Saint Teresa of Avila speaks of the ‘Interior Castle’ and Thomas Merton wrote "A door opens in the center of our being and we seem to fall through it into immense depths which, although they are infinite, are all accessible to us; all eternity seems to have become ours in this one placid and breathless contact. . . .You feel as if you were at last fully born."

The Chandogya Upanishads beautifully express that within this Sacred Heart ‘the city of Brahman’ is a small shrine in form of a lotus 'Hrit Padma' and within this shrine is hiding a secret cave ‘Guha’. It is this sacred place, that "contains all that is to be sought, that is to be understood."

Truth is a pathless land.
