Vimarsha Foundation is a modern school (gurukula) for teaching and reflecting on the ancient wisdom of rishis and siddhas. We aim to integrate text and practice (śāstra and sādhanā) while sustaining traditional modes of the transmission (paramparā) of contemplative methods with open-ended rational approaches.

You don't need to get a book called Tantra in order to practice it, just Devī Māhātmya, Durgā Saptaśatī, Caṇḍī. That is the first book, for any higher level of Tantra, to practice.

I started Vimarsha Foundation to reach out to a wider community to discuss some of these esoteric śāstras that my gurus in Varanasi and Nepal shared with great love.

All of the fathers and grandfathers crave for the continuity of tradition. I believe that this is one of the ways most applicable in our time for propagating these teachings.
