What is Sūvata Buddhism?

Sūvata Buddhism is a path to inner peace through conscious cultivation of the spirit.

Descendant from the Yogāvacara Buddhism lineage, Sūvata Buddhism emphasises routine and ritual to deepen your spiritual connection to the universe and the collective consciousness.

More than simply yoga, a diet, or a meditation habit, Sūvata Buddhism is a holistic practice to lift up your mind, body, and spirit simultaneously. 

No matter where you’re at in your spiritual journey — or how you identify as a spiritual being — the teachings and practices of Sūvata Buddhism can help you become a better version of yourself and finally find inner peace.

There is one key thing that leads to unhappiness (barring mental illnesses), and it is simply this:

Things in your world aren’t going the way you think they should.

That’s it. That’s the entire reason.

When things in your life go the way you think they should, you’re happy. When they don’t, you’re unhappy.

This unhappiness, this lack of inner peace, leads to many bad habits and poor lifestyle choices, such as:

  • Smoking
  • Drinking to excess
  • Drug addiction
  • Emotional eating
  • Bingeing TV
  • Sleep procrastination
  • Junk food habits
  • Sugar addiction

People allow themselves to seek comfort in all these vices which are toxic merely because they want to feel happy. Happiness, peace, no matter how fleeting, is enough to drive people to terrible behaviours, which can all too quickly become life threatening habits.

Sūvata Buddhism is a practice rooted in ancient wisdom that arms you with the tools necessary to cope with modern life in a healthy, soul-affirming way.

Sūvata Buddhism gives you a philosophy and a framework for life in this modern world. By implementing the practice of Sūvata, you move through your days in a way that sets you up for emotional wellbeing, physical health, and spiritual fulfilment.

What is Yogāvacara Buddhism?

Yogāvacara means to be at home in endeavour and spiritual practices. Yogāvacara emphasises esoteric practices, ritual, chanting to bring about spiritually contemplative states in which one can find enlightenment.

Yogāvacara Buddhism creates a map of inner and outer worlds in the form of mysticism. Drawing on correspondences between the cosmos and the human body, Yogāvacara Buddhism draws on the resources of dispersed ancient traditions.

  • Practices found in Yogāvacara Buddhism include:
  • Energy working
  • Puja worships of deities and Buddhas
  • Ritual for healing and protection
  • Dharmakāya meditation

Yogāvacara is part of the Theravada School of Buddhism, and still practiced in Cambodia and Laos. Sūvata Buddhism is derived from this ancient practice.
