On October 2, 2013, in a special ceremony in Summerville, SC, Indira Bhagavati was Ascended by her spiritual mentor, Munishwarji Walking Tall and the Great White Brotherhood, as the new Spiritual Head of the Temple of the Inner Self. During her Ascension, Indira was acknowledged by her teacher and by the Taoist Yogi-Christ Lineage of North America as having reached among the highest levels of spiritual attainment recognized by the Lineage. Munishwarji will continue to provide mentorship to his Beloved Indira as she powerfully steps into the Office of Spiritual Head. Indira's Ascension marks a tremendous acceleration in the growth of our community and an unprecedented level of spiritual teachings which we are now able to offer aspirants on the Path.
The Temple of the Inner Self™ is an interfaith spiritual community - a Holy Temple whose Mission is "Global Evolution through Personal Transformation of Consciousness." We welcome everyone. Our core teaching is that the Kingdom of Heaven lies within the human Heart (Luke 17:21), and every human being can experience their own inherent Divine Nature through the Path of Love and Devotion. Our spiritual community traces its heritage back to ancient India. Our community houses a specific body of sacred Initiatory Esoteric Teachings from the Taoist Yogi-Christ Lineage of North America brought to the United States by Sant Mata Samyama Shangri-La in 1971. Because the Taoist Yogi-Christ Teachings incorporate an interfaith philosophy, our instructional programs incorporate spiritual practices from many different traditions and include meditation, metaphysics, Eastern philosophy, yoga, the Western Mystery Teachings, Sufism, the Kabbalah, energy healing, mysticism, shamanism, affirmative prayer and devotional chanting. Our path is open to people of all traditions and faiths. We teach that Union with God is personal, subjective and direct, and is uniquely experienced by each individual Soul. Our Spiritual Head offers all traditional Holy Sacraments, including performing weddings, christenings, ulogies for our community members. Our Faculty additionally offers group and private instruction and online home study courses. Check our events page for current class schedules. Our practitioners give private healing and spiritual counseling appointments. Join us every Wednesday night from 7-8:30pm for our weekly Satsang Meditation & Worship Service.

Our Core Spiritual Tenets
1. There is One Original Being - known as God or Spirit (and by many other names and forms) - which is everywhere present.
2. The nature of this Benevolent Power is Perfect Love.
3. We are all personal forms of the One Original Being. We are part of God and not separate from God.
4. The purpose of our Life's Journey is to experience our inherent God-Nature.
5. How we experience our God-Nature is personal, subjective and direct, and is unique to each individual Soul.
