Imagine looking at the world you live in,
and recognizing divinity in everything you see and everyone you meet.
Imagine facing every situation in your life
with the unwavering strength and delight that come from
the certainty of the divine presence within you.

The Siddha Yoga teachings assert that this attainment is not only possible,
it is our birthright.
The goal of the Siddha Yoga path is Self-realization
—the unceasing experience of yoga, or unity with God.
Within each of us, behind the mind, the body, the ego, is a divine power.
We practice yoga to recognize this divine power, the Self,
and harmonize all our actions, thoughts, and words with it.
The key to this divine vision of ourselves and the world
is shaktipat, or spiritual initiation.
When we receive shaktipat, we gain entry to our inner spiritual realms.
Then, through our practices, our own spiritual awareness unfolds.

The Siddha Yoga teachings are made easily available
to seekers around the world through the work of the SYDA Foundation.
