The ​Fourth Path–
Karunya Marga

An Intensive Seminar ​with
Aaravindha Himadra

November 12–22, 2018, Kisslegg, Germany

For the last 9 years I have participated in the yearly seminars with Aaravindha in Switzerland, Germany and the U.S. Since my first seminar, I found that the tradition and knowledge changed my perspective and transformed my life completely. Even if it's sometimes hard to link the world of deep spiritual Sambodha knowledge with my daily life, spirituality became part of my life in every moment. What I love most about Aaravindha as my spiritual teacher is that he always gives his best and listens to the need of each student in every moment. He is a good example of being humble and human. Every seminar was unique, special and a big surprise. Thanx Aaravindha for your guidance, patience and profound knowledge!

With his outstanding capacity of listening, Aaravindha is answering individual questions and also to the need of a few hundred people at the same time in many levels. Not only this leaves me in awe, still after so many different kinds of seminars I attended. As a result, each time at the end of this precious time, I found myself deeply regenerated and rejuvenated. These seminars are an immeasurably precious gift to me. I also experienced Aaravindha in his extraordinary presence as very approachable. A friend and companion through our travels in consciousness. He is a very exceptional, outstanding Master Teacher and a true friend, whom to meet is a great honor in itself.

Aaravindha's wisdom and love felt like rays of sunshine I instinctively decided to trust. Never before had I met anyone who was able to guide me through my internal process as uncompromising, loving and beautiful as Aaravindha. I have not met one participant who did not think it was the best thing on earth that happened to them. It was the best investment of money and time I have ever made. I am now able to stand in my own truth, radiate love and say NO to things that just do not feel right, independent from what other people might think. My heart full of love and true self-authority are the two treasures I took home.

The Fourth Path – Karunya Marga

Three interlinked paths are quintessential to every spiritual journey, —right action, right knowledge, and right devotion. In the ancient East these are classically referred to as Karma Marga, Jnana Marga, and Bhakti Marga. But these are in themselves not entirely adequate to bring a full and comprehensive focus and direction to the process of “Self-Awakening;” to that greater consummate path that brings forth the enlightenment. In order for these timeless three to be of any real use and value they will require something more; a fourth path that has long been absent or lost in most all spiritual traditions. That fourth path is the Karunya Marga.  

Karunya Marga translates directly as, “the way of compassion.” But this kind of Karunya-compassion is not the same as sympathy, empathy or kindness, which are the most common vocabulary used to describe compassion. Karunya-compassion is not generally understood in the world today. It represents a highly sophisticated art that involves a precise and deeply profound methodology for intuitively divining what constitutes the essential harmonies, movements, and right principles involved in truly living and expressing Dharma. It is the means by which we overcome the mind’s inherent limits for discriminating the core disparities between illusion and Truth. Once understood, it could easily be said that it is the single core requisite that most profoundly fosters and advances every genuine spiritual practice. For the enlightened, it represents the truest and most significant means that ultimately embodies and actualizes the Life-Divine.  

What seems true for one person may appear false to the next. This is because we each translate our sense of right order and knowledge uniquely, most often in relation to our learned sense of who we’ve come to believe we are. But, Truth is fundamentally always the Truth; it doesn’t differ even though our perceptions may. While Truth cannot easily be understood in its wholeness, it can be intuited through its shine into our lives. It could be said that enlightenment is fundamentally the ability to see life as it truly is, experienced purely beyond the perceptual blur of our emotional filters, prejudices, or predilections. 

The Karunya Marga is the means for mastering that intuitive ability to see, feel, and hear the Truth in its essential purity, acting out and supporting our lives in all we do. The Karunya Marga is the heart of the spiritual path. It is the sacred science that unfolds the founding values, upon which every true Self-Realization technique and practice is built. 

Aaravindha Himadra, author of the spiritual bestseller "Immortal Self," is a master and Rishi (Seer) of the timeless Surah Parampara tradition. He teaches locally and internationally Self-knowledge and a variety of techniques that make it easy for any interested persons to develop their inner gifts, develop healing, and attain liberation, deep inner peace, and eventually enlightenment.
