Who is Sri Tathata
Tathata means He who is That in Sanskrit. Sri Tathata is an enlightened
sage born in Kerala and living in his Kollur (Karnataka) ashram. From
the first meeting with this great Soul, his love touches us in the
deepest of our being. The atmosphere around him, his simplicity, his
words, all encourage everyone to reconnect to their infant heart.
At his birth many signs showed him to be a Divine child and Sri Tathata
spent his early years meditating alone, in absorption into the Divine.
As a young man, he followed the strict discipline of a yogi. Then came
the time of his mission: to reveal the Divine Nature of Human Beings
and lead them to their highest spiritual level.
Sri Tathata's Message
Sri Tathata, guided by the Divine Mother since an early age, introduces
a new dimension to both Indian and Western spirituality.
For Sri Tathata, there is no separation between material and spiritual
life: the spiritual exercices that he teaches help us live our love
life, family life and professional life in harmony. Through his
teachings, Sri Tathata guides us on the way of Soul; furthermore, he
initiates to a particular pranayama, which transforms the cellular
level and leads to mastering the passage of death.
Mankind is today on the verge of making a great leap forward towards
living Divine Life, as many can feel in the West. But one could ask how
such a huge change is possible in a short while. The key of this
evolution is Divine Grace. At certain Times, and this is the case of
ours, the Divine energy gets closer to mankind through great avatars
such as Sri Tathata.
Sri Tathata's ashrams and Dharma Peetha
Very early, several men of his region recognised Sri Tathata as a great
sage, and they began to live close to him to receive his teachings and
serve him. Today they are the 10 Maytris (initiated men), who are
pillars of the two ashrams founded by Sri Tathata. The first of these
is at his birth place in Varishthapuri (Kerala, south India) and the
second in Kollur (Karnataka).
At the beginning of the 1990s, Sri Tathata was requested by the Divine
to build a gathering place to help mankind rise to fulfilment. Kollur,
a small town in Karnataka was chosen as its location. Kollur is an
important center for pilgrims due to its Temple to the Divine Mother
(Three Mothers' Temple); the great monk-philosopher Shankaracharya
(788-820) obtained enlightenment on the nearby mountain at the age of 7
after having prayed in this Temple.
Sri Tathata built Dharma Peetha whose architecture is original and
inspiring. It is a Sri Chakra. Since its consecration on July 6th 2006,
the Temple has been radiating onto the whole world (see the section
dedicated to the Dharma Peetha).
Maitreyi Amma, offering Sri Tathata's Message to the World
In February 2000, Maitreyi Amma met Sri Tathata in his Kollur ashram.
In 2001, she spent seven and a half months at his side, before Sri
Tathata asked her to go back to the world. Maitreyi Amma thus started
offering Sri Tathata's message to France.
In a very short while, a small group of French people recognised who
she was. From that time, a profound relationship was established
between them all and Sri Tathata and an association was created to help
Maitreyi Amma in her mission. It is about making Sri Tathata known, to
allow those who are ready, who thirst after a Divine energy, to get
connected to the flow of Divine Grace and to fulfil the way.
The darshans given by Maitreyi Amma, filled with the light and grace of
the Divine Mother and in Union with Sri Tathata, are a precious
resource in these times of great change. Her teachings, sat-sangs,
conferences and seminars guide and nurture those who come to her.
Since 2004, Maitreyi Amma has been having new responsibilities: spread
Sri Tathata's light and make Dharma Peetha known throughout the world.
"Nature is simple always
and complex at times. But man is simple at
times and complex always. This difference is self-made. Basically man
and nature are one and the same. Nature aims for perfection. Man also
aims for Divine perfection. So if man tunes himself to nature by
remaining steadfastly to his own Dharma, nature's movement will take
hold of him for the realisation of perfection. And thus effortlessly he
can attain his goal. A simple life in tune with nature is the way for
