The SHRIYOGA philosophy is an ever evolving, deepening study into the nature of the Self and the path into the true heart of the practice. The roots of SHRIYOGA begin with the non-dualist approach of Tantric yogis and scholars, who realized that each person has the whole of the universal consciousness already inside. Nothing outside needs to be sought; there is nothing you need to complete you. True wisdom is found in your inner teacher.
