A shrine is far more than a physical structure—church, temple, or mosque—dedicated to a particular divinity. A true shrine cuts across all barriers of religion, history, and culture to infuse our minds and hearts with divine presence. This is because shrines, where countless seekers have done sadhana (spiritual practice), are conduits for collective consciousness. In this satsang, Pandit Tigunait shares how shrines can rapidly accelerate our spiritual growth by giving us a taste of divine consciousness.

Spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute, Pandit Tigunait is the successor of Swami Rama of the Himalayas. Lecturing and teaching worldwide for more than a quarter of a century, he is the author of 17 books, including his recently released Vishoka Meditation: The Yoga of Inner Radiance, and his autobiography Touched by Fire: The Ongoing Journey of a Spiritual Seeker. Pandit Tigunait holds two doctorates: one in Sanskrit from the University of Allahabad in India, and another in Oriental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. Family tradition gave Pandit Tigunait access to a vast range of spiritual wisdom preserved in both the written and oral traditions. Before meeting his master, Pandit Tigunait studied Sanskrit, the language of the ancient scriptures of India, as well as the languages of the Buddhist, Jaina, and Zoroastrian traditions. In 1976, Swami Rama ordained Pandit Tigunait into the 5,000-year-old lineage of the Himalayan Masters.
