Ekatvam is a beautiful Sanskrit word which means Unity or Oneness with Divine Consciousness. Ekatvam, as oneness, transcends religions, traditions, and cultures. It is a realization that we are woven together through our consciousness and hearts.
Ekatvam Foundation, a non-profit spiritual organization, was founded by Swami Shanmuga and Amma Adi Sakthi with the mission of uncovering the totality of spirituality and making it accessible for every person.
Ekatvam’s mission is to open the doors for you to experience divinity. This comes at four unique stages for every person. Tatvam Asi (Thou art that), Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma (All the Universe is God), Ayam Atma Brahma (The Self is God), and Aham Brahmasmi (I am God). For, when you experience a state of Divinity, you become Divine.
Ekatvam’s vision is to bring you spiritual content, practices, and teachings, based on our inner experiences and revelations, which can help you to be in Ekatvam with your Higher Self. We want to empower people so they can transcend themselves to become One with the Divine, to become masters in their own right.
The word Ekatvam is mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita (The Divine Song of God, in 6:31), Lord Krishna spoke as follows:
Translation: The yogi who worships the Supreme Soul, knowing that he and the Supreme Soul are One, remains always in Me, in all circumstances.
The individual personality has erected barriers between the individual self and the Supreme Self.
As one dismantles these barriers, they begin to get glimpses of the higher Self. Eventually, the individual becomes one with the Supreme Self, and in the process, merges with Universal-consciousness. This is Ekatvam, true unity and oneness.
More than any physical ashram or temple, Swami and Amma want to build a temple in every person’s heart. That is the true Temple for a person, where the inner teachings reveal themselves and become reality. It is where one experiences Truth. By lighting a lamp in people’s hearts, which in turn illuminates other hearts, it is Ekatvam’s vision that people come together, in oneness, in Ekatvam, to realize their fullest potential.
