Shri Gurudev Mahendranath

The International Nath Order was founded by Shri Gurudev Mahendranath in order to share his own spiritual development and magick power with other sincere people in the West. The INO presents and promotes Dadaji’s own synthesis of the tantric teachings of both the Adinath and Uttara Kaula lines as a spiritual path. More about Shri Gurudev Mahendranath can be found in his biography.

International Nath Order

The International Nath Order is a group of individuals brought together by a sincere interest in meditation, spiritual development and study of the precepts handed down through history in the Nath tradition as we understand it. The INO is for people who want, and will work for: spiritual development toward awakening; the development of occult attainment (siddhi); a new, better and more enlightened social order based on our pagan past.
