About the School
Awakening of Consciousness beyond the Trance of Life
It is often taught that there are two schools of Tantra, the left-handed path and the right-handed path, depending on the nature of the practices. However, these two are actually divisions within one school, that of Kaula Tantra. The other two are the Mishra and Samaya schools of Tantra. All systems or methods of Tantra fall into one of these three schools, though there may be many subdivisions within these three.
The Schools of Tantra
The Kaula Tantra school utilizes external practices and rituals, while the Samaya school is completely an internal process. The Mishra Tantra school mixes the external practices and rituals, along with internal practices. The three schools are progressively higher, with Kaula Tantra being the lower, Mishra Tantra going further inward, and Samaya Tantra being the highest for those who are prepared to do the advanced practices.
By being aware of all three schools of Tantra, one can more wisely see how Tantra might fit into his or her personal spiritual practices, not limiting one’s scope to the choice between the two Kaula Tantra paths.
Each of the three schools of Tantra believe in purifying of the body, breath, mind, and the latent impressions called samskaras, which are the driving force behind karma. The purifying process is called bhutashuddhi, which means purifying of the five elements of earth, water, fire, air, and space in the various ways in which they manifest.
Each of the schools of Tantra also practice methods for awakening the spiritual energy of kundalini, though the methods and the height attained in that kundalini awakening may differ. Some of the methods of Tantra are taught under the names Kundalini Yoga or Kriya Yoga.
Higher than both the Kaula Tantra and Mishra Tantra schools is that of Samaya Tantra. It is a purely tantric practice, without any external rituals. Its entire purpose is Self-Realization, ultimately leading to moksha, final liberation.

Both Karen and Tjaart have their own business in the mundane world but their souls craving for spiritual awakening pushed them to create SOS as their give back to the greater good of uplifting humanity towards Homo Perennis. SOS not only serves the awakening of intelligence but on this journey their gratitude to nature lead them to save two Tigers from the export beauty and medicinal trade in South Africa.
Karen and TLB’s passion for nature, as the door to awakening, escalates their cause The Voiceless, for little did they know, that these two Sentient beings would be the source connection for the Maha Khala Meditaton App which was revealed to TLB during his daily meditation processes with them. If you are visiting South Africa be sure to book a program Meditation with Amar and Taara.
100% of the donations from all programs at SOS go towards the care and wellbeing of Amar and Taara as well as over 100 wild birds, 3 families of wild Geese and over 50 wild Guinea Fowls. As SOS grows, Karen and TLB hope to expand their cause, through their programs, to as many countries as possible, creating oneness and unity. By signing up, you not only do good for your self awakening but for a great cause as well.
