From the Founder

A conscious and careful examination of our desires reveals two main types of kama: pure and impure. Pure desires are sattvic, selfless, introspective and heart-centered. They bring peace to the mind and invoke compassion, gratitude and kindness. Impure desires are rajistic, selfish, extrospective and activated by our senses. They agitate the heart-mind-spirit and invoke greed, lust, sorrow and despondency. Once seen and sorted, impure desires can be transformed and purified through refinement and modification, or they may be cast off through vairagya (detachment). Pure desires can be cultivated, empowered and strengthened through mediation, contemplation and sankalpa (intention).
