    The dualistic world is also infinite, but it is infinite in its smallness; it is infinite in its littleness, in its fragmentation.

    “What is the state of the scientist?”
    Science will keep asking,
    “What is the universe? How is the universe? From where does it come? To where does it go?”
    But it will never ask,
    “To whom does the universe occur?”

    Spirituality is dimensionally above science.
    Spirituality looks not only at that which is outside, but also at that which is apparently inside and looks at the outside.
    Spirituality looks at both — the object out there and the subject in here (mind).
    Science looks only at the object.
    Spirituality looks at both — the object and the subject; which means that science and Spirituality are in no way opposites.
    There can be no conflict between them.
    It is just that Spirituality is an infinite superset which contains all kinds of sciences.
    Spirituality is the vast expanse in which many sciences keep coming, keep going.

Each one of us deserves the Truth. So, we made a conscious choice: to keep our work open for all, regardless of whether they can afford to donate.

A tremendous body of our work – around 10,000 videos, 3000 articles, and more – has been made freely available to all on the internet. Just one piece of statistic to put in perspective the magnitude of our charitable work: Around a million minutes of video content is consumed daily by our viewers on YouTube alone, absolutely for free.

This would not be possible without financial contributions from our audiences, who support our work from around the world.

We have upheld our independence in the face of the disintegration of genuine spirituality – with more and more contemporary spiritual content being just disguised commercialism, consumptionism, and egoism. We refuse to belong to any lineage or tradition, we refuse to identify with any ideology or community, nor do we pander to base sentiments to gain followership or financial assistance. This enables us to freely say the truth without inhibition.

Your financial support has meant we can continue to keep bringing you the truth and the undiluted essence of the scriptures. You have supported our independence, and we are grateful.

We need your support so we can keep bringing the truth to you. Any amount contributed by you towards our noble cause is valuable.

We need your support so we can keep bringing the truth to you. Support us from as little as $5 – it only takes a minute.

Donate via PayPal:

(In multiples of $5)


Or, you can donate an amount of your choice directly at our website.
