Sri Shyamji grew up in a family
of Vedic tradition. He was initiated into the Saivite tradition of Tantra by an
exceptional guru. The grace of the guru (guru krippa) and the spiritual
practices he imparted (Sadhana) are the basis for his lifes work. His
knowledge of Shuddha (pure) Advaita Vedanta was taught to him by an
extraordinary exponent, Sri. Atmanandendra Sarasvati. This wisdom has been a
major contribution to Microchakra Psychology and InnerTuning®.
The ancient way of life taught on the
Indian subcontinent from time immemorial was called Sanatan Dharmathe
eternal laws. These were regarded as the laws of the universe. If a person
could understand and follow them, their life would be in harmony with the
universe. No distinction was made between physical and spiritual laws. Sanatan
Dharma has been carried through the ages by two ancient traditions:
Tantra and Veda.
The scope of these traditions is
vast. InnerTuning® makes most use of the non- dual forms of Saivism from
the Tantric tradition and Advaita Vedanta from the Vedic tradition. It also
suggests that ages ago, these might have been just one tradition
(Tantra-Advaita). These laws together with the inner sounds and visions of Sri
Shyamji are the source of inspiration for Microchakra Psychology and

An essential step in this direction
is to perceive the difference between the Self and the ego. This advanced and
subtle step is called discernment (vicara). Advaita Vedanta refers to the
absence of this discernment as metaphysical ignorance. Vedanta employs the
highest thought process that humans are capable of. It is not possible to
approach this truth with out first transcending the mind.
In the Tantric tradition, it is

The human microcosm is
regarded as a reflection of the universal macrocosm.
Within each atom is
also contained a miniature of the entire cosmos This understanding seems to be
in agreement with the holographic theory of the universe. Observation of the
human mind is assumed to provide a path towards understanding of the greater
It aims not only at self-purification, liberation and
self-perfection but also at cosmic enjoyment.Tantra aims at the
self-fulfillment of the existence of man and woman in the delight of psychic
unity. Tantra seeks Divine bliss and freedom in the Universe of existence.
There are poses, mudras, breath controls, concentrations, chants and
meditations but more than all these, there is the delight of the conquest of
the lower nature by the higher to make life an Integral factor of Bliss
It awakens the latent dynamism in all the planes of awareness.
