To spread the original, universal and eternal truth, path or law of yoga, which remains forever the same in essence, yet always adapts to the time and place.
“Sanatan” means original, universal, eternal and is mostly used as “Sanatan Dharm”, the ancient name for “Hinduism” as the original, universal, eternal truth, values, laws, religion. It also stands for the path that originates from the original, universal and eternal and brings the individual to the original, universal and eternal. There is a lot of historic evidence to suggest that this original truth lies at the basis of all spirituality and religions. While Hinduism may have preserved it in a truly admirable fashion, the original truth called Sanatan Dharm is clearly not limited to any particular religion, race or country.
Accordingly, Sanatan Society does not feel limited to any religion, race or country, even though it recognizes the teachings of Hinduism as the most true to the original teachings of Sanatan Dharm. All yogic sciences and paths are derived from it and are a worthy object of Sanatan Society studies and practice.
Sanatan Society is an initiative of the students of Harish Johari, who left his body on the 20th of August 1999. The objective is to create and maintain an Internet platform that allows people to continue to study, apply and teach the Indian Vedic and Tantric traditions as he did.
All his wisdom, energy and love are imbedded in those traditions. We do not wish to concentrate on his glorification within this website, because he would not have accepted such delusion. Nevertheless, the Sanatan Society websites are dedicated to him and could not have existed without him. Not only because the idea originally was his, but also because he was a really great guy. In continuing his work we hope to fulfil the real debt to the teacher, which is to pass through the teaching. This site is only a part of that work.
Sanatan Society is an international networking association of students of the late Harish Johari, joining efforts to promote his teachings of yoga philosophy, tantra, worship, art and love. Sanatan Society stands for the original, universal and eternal truth, path or law of yoga. Though it is Hindu in origin, Sanatan Society is not limited to any religion, race, time or country, nor in fact to any particular organisation. More about Sanatan Society...
