Online Akhara - Learning Center
The Learning Center is the core of the Online Akhara.
Here you can engage more deeply with Baul wisdom through Parvathy Maa and other Baul Masters.
It serves to give the tradition a greater opportunity to share Baul wisdom throughout the modern world.
"Baul is Nirvana Nataka - the theatre of ultimate liberation.
It incorporates everything. The singing, the dancing, the storytelling - everything together. It enhances your inner seeking and inner contemplation
Baul is basically a tool in your hand to use your body, mind and voice for the worship of the Divine, to meditate on the Divine."
- Parvathy Baul
Parvathy Maa created Sanatan Siddhashram as the embodiment of the vision of her Guruji Shri Sanatan Das Baul.
It is a space for sadhana (inner practise), for transmitting the Baul wisdom, for preserving the ancient tradition and bridging it into the modern context for the centuries to come.
