Gurmukhi is the name of the script exclusively used to write the Sikh holy scriptures, Sri Guru Granth Sahib and Dasam Granth.

TANTRA AND GROWING COUPLES
Tantra Yoga is an essential ancient science of personal and spiritual evolution.
The Sanskrit word Tantra means “to weave and expand.”
The tantric path is non-dualistic, meaning there is no separation of the physical world and the world of spirit. Tantra sees the two as intertwined, and heightens our awareness that all the threads of our experience are part of the divine tapestry of life.
Growth and spiritual development is the law of life.
When we stop growing spiritually, we actually begin dying. When a relationship stops growing, it starts dying as well.
A relationship that maintains its freshness and depth through the years is possible only if both you and your partner are growing.
"Tantra is the science of turning ordinary lovers into soulmates. Two lovers can be transformed so deeply that all their seven centers can start meeting. It is one of the greatest treasures that is lying there, unused. The day humanity uses it the earth will become aglow with a new love.”
A more advanced yoga practice including Pranayama (breath work), Asana (the physical practice), meditation and mantra - all combined in a way to enhance spiritual development and bring you into a higher state of being.
