​"When I finally arrived in Acharya Shunya’s global online spiritual classroom, it felt like the final destination after navigating through the universe for many lifetimes. The lightness, pleasant feelings and illuminating light of wisdom lifted the heavy blocks on my heart. After long years of struggle, frustration and depression, the spiritual teachings came as the ultimate gift of my life."

​"The biggest lesson that I've taken away from my studies with Acharya Shunya is the idea that, no matter what happens, it’s going to be okay. That I am not what happens to me. I am not what I do or don’t do. I simply am. I am not at the mercy of my mind, emotions, or circumstances. It’s such a simple, yet powerful lesson that has made a world of a difference to me."

Through the wisdom teachings from Acharya Shunya and her lineage, I was able to experience the radiance I had witnessed from other students.  Ten years later, Acharya Shunya's Ayurveda teachings are a part of my day-to-day life, care for my child and what I share with my community.  I am forever grateful.
