Padmini Vidya is the heart of tantra sadhana, particularly the Sri Vidya tradition of tantra. This knowledge takes our understanding and practice of Sri Sukta to a new height. The eight sessions of this program are based on the direct teachings of the Sage Markandeya, the immortal rishi who gave the gift of the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra to the seekers of inner healing.

Padmini Vidya was first taught by Sage Markandeya to Sage Kraustiki, as documented in the Markandeya Purana. There, the dialogue between these two masters opens the floodgate of the secret knowledge locked in the Sri Sukta mantras 5 and 8. “This secret knowledge transcends all written records on Sri Sukta, including my commentary on it!” says Pandit Tigunait.

Padmini Vidya is one of the most sattvic of all tantric practices, with a far-reaching sattvic result provided that our intention behind practice is lit by our conscience. It is so humbling to know how, so subtly and so effectively, the practice of Sri Sukta plants the seed of Padmini Vidya in the lotus of our heart, and how Sage Markandeya’s exposition provides nutrients for this vidya to blossom. With this blossoming comes the blossoming of our mind and soul, as well as the larger world of which we are a part.
