What is ascension and how can it be achieved? Contrary to popular belief, ascension does not necessarily mean you have to leave your body or go to another world. Ascension means to rise above limitations and boundaries. Parama explains how the Ishayas' Ascension gives meaning and techniques to achieve the experience of ascension in the here and now. Ananta tells the story of why she became interested in dedicating her life as a monk. Parama and Ananta encourage us to fully live in the present.
