Nath Mela 2017 Schedule Change

change1

Nath Mela 2017 hosted at the Sanctuary in Costa Rica is now scheduled for February 19th through the 25th, 2017. We regret the change of timing for those of you already planning to attend. It has been revealed that a public holiday in Costa Rica will disrupt food distribution for the previously announced dates in April.  On the bright side, the new dates place the retreat in one of the finest climate periods of the year. Please consider these dates for an immersion into meditation and ritual as practiced by the International Nath Order. Full schedule and details to follow. Om Namah Shivaya!

Principle Value of the INO

It is attainment we want and not just a whirl of new activity,
It is attainment we want and not just titles, accolades and anathemas,
It is attainment we want and not diplomas, charters and death certificates.

Shri Gurudev Mahendranath – from a letter to Sri Kapilnath 1989

I’m delighted to announce the new website for the International Nath Order. The new site includes a fresh layout and updates to many pages. It is now possible to read and navigate our rich content conveniently on a small device. Please consider dropping by and checking out the new features.  New and legacy content will now be more frequently shared on our usual and new channels. All of this offered as dakshina to the INO and the Immortal line of Shiva’s Naths by Rosedevi and Sri Kapilnath on September 11, 2016.  Om Namah Shivaya!

“If I were to make a redistillation of all that I have written, I would have to bubble in an alchemical alembic and produce this distillate. This is only that I have asked the INO and their associates to pause, meditate and take a new look at established customs, cultures, traditions, prevailing social cliches and the eternal and evil brainwashing that goes on from the cradle to the grave. All these serve to block and impede our expansion and attainment.”  Shri Gurudev Mahendranath

 

Dattatreya

Dattatreya

Dattatreya is considered the adi guru(originator – root guru) of many Indian traditions. Lord Datta is perhaps best remembered as the Avadhut, (a human being who has removed the fetters). As Avadhut, Dattatreya was heard to say a number things. One of the most fascinating of these stories involves the teachings of his 24 gurus. Sanskrit tells us that one name of 24 is Siddha (accomplished, perfected to degree). 24 is also the number of horas (hours in a calendar day). The significance of these meanings aside, we must note the identities of his gurus. All of these 24 gurus were things and entities which existed on earth and inhabited our solar system. While only 24 in number, the number is complete, perfect and reports a miracle. With an awakened mind, Dattatreya used his inbuilt awareness and intelligence to be informed directly by the whispering Cosmos. Even better, he took tuition from the Sun, Moon, Earth, elements, animals, insects, people and nature. These agencies informed his experience and understanding was illuminated. Dattatreya communicated, listened and transformed to become Avadhuta. Astute readers note that not one book is listed among Dattatreya’s gurus. Traditions of the book therefore being different than Dattatreya’s process as described here. Dattatreya is dear to us as the first holder of primordial wisdom and Avadhuta. Dattatreya is the Adi Guru of the International Nath Order. Jai Datto Hung.
