Positive Personality: Aaravindha Himadra
Invitation to an immortal perspective.
Interviewed by Elva Carri.
Aaravindha Himadra is the author of ‘Immortal Self’, a book that tells the story of his journey to the Himalayas to visit the masters of the Amartya tradition; a spiritual community he explains as ancient, reclusive and predating any other religious or spiritual belief. He describes how one of the masters came to him in a vision as a child, how he was later approached by one in a marketplace in India and how he finally made the journey after another vision called him to do so. In his book and through his teaching, he divulges the sacred lessons he learned there.
If you could teach everyone in the world one thing…
Something we’ve always had, and that is our ability for compassion. In the east it’s called Karuna and different than what we sometimes think of as compassion in the west – as a kindness or empathy. Compassion is an ancient spiritual art which requires us to become very present and acknowledge the moment. And this is something anyone can do. What is now? Where are we? What is going on right now? And if we feel truthfully into our condition, we can feel our difficulties and our hopes. If our hopes are based on illusion, they’ll feel like a weight, but if they’re based on our essential nature, they’ll feel as light as a feather.
