According to Samaya Tantra, your entire life experience, takes place within your own consciousness. Much like a dream, with your ego at the centre of the dream, everything in life is experienced within, and nothing you experience is outside of your own consciousness. Your world perception is simply a controlled hallucination of your mind, based on the electrical impulses the brain receives from the senses.

In order to experience something that is truly from beyond the limits of your senses and your mind, your consciousness first has to become completely unattached to what it is perceiving. It has to become hollow and empty. Only then can something from the collective consciousness enter your consciousness directly, rather than by proxy, through the senses. The cup of consciousness therefor has to be truly empty of attachment to your world perception for something divine to enter.

Samaya Tantra has “oneness” at the root of its teachings. It reveals how to awaken consciousness at the physical, mental, emotional and ultimately the purely spiritual level. This is known as the “breaking of the seals” to achieve liberation from the trance called life.

Our main meditation technique, called Maha Khala, uses the sense experiences of the mind to enter the surface of the present moment. And from the present moment it helps you to go deeper and connect to your consciousness that contains your perception of the present moment. Maha Khala is a registered trademark of School of Samaya. The Know Thy Ego True Personality Assessment Profiles allows you to deep dive into self understanding and our extensive The Perennial Truth book and all digital courses deepens your understanding of this cosmic creation and your place in it.


School of Samaya (SOS), was first established in 2004 as an alternative healing and wellness centre and has since evolved its service offerings and programs to an international audience through the digital platform of self education programs. SOS offers ancient wisdom in the form of modern day techniques and knowledge that can be applied in your daily life. In this manner spiritual practice can be integrated with daily activities rather than being apart from it. This approach results in a natural union between living and being.

Holistically, the school’s aim is to help mankind evolve and awaken to a new level of consciousness, enabling the mental evolution of Homo Sapiens into Homo Perennis – a kind of human that is integrated with the natural world, rather than existing apart from it.

Honouring Consciousness

Since 2004

School of Samaya’s teaching is based on the ancient knowledge of Tantra (5000 BC), and is not associated with the Buddhist interpretation of Tantra. The practices taught by School of Samaya (SOS) focus on internal processes rather than external rituals. The knowledge taught by SOS, called The Perennial Truth, deals with the role and awakening of individual consciousness within creation, ultimately leading to a state of oneness with the collective consciousness, which is beyond creation.

When you immerses yourself in your higher purpose and align to Divine guidance, blessings flow into the physical world and this ripple effect frees you from the suffering of the mind and heart.

awareness is the key and the Present Moment is the door!
