To most aspirants, the idea of tradition is both inspiring and enigmatic. Is there only one tradition or are there many? What are the origins of a tradition, and what makes a tradition living? How can we be a part of a tradition, and what role can it play in our lives as spiritual seekers?
The Himalayan sages treasured the role of tradition in their spiritual evolution. They refer to tradition as guru parampara—the unbroken lineage of living wisdom that lights our path and guides us to the highest experience of Self.
In this livestream, Ishan Tigunait unravels the mysteries of tradition, delving into the origins of the Himalayan Tradition and the masters who are the custodians of our lineage.
Learn where we fit into this living tradition, and how we can share in the gifts that the Himalayan Tradition has to offer.

The Himalayan Masters: A Living Tradition
The tradition of the Himalayan sages that exists today is an unbroken chain that extends for more than 5,000 years. Undisturbed by the passage of time, this tradition is not concerned with teachings that apply only to a particular era of history or geographical region of the world—its entire emphasis is on the experience of the universal truth of who we are.
The readings in this livestream can be found on pages: xi, 1, and 84.
