History of Maha Poorna Atma Yoga

The current processes of nature

In nature everything undergoes big and small cycles, that continuously reoccur in the same order. One of these cycles, that human beings experience directly, are the four seasons for example: spring, summer, fall and winter. Every season is known to have a certain energy and certain characteristics. Besides these smaller cycles, there are also much bigger ones that are less perceptible to us humans because their duration is a thousand times our lifespan. These are called the four "yugas" (ages) in the Vedic scriptures. "Veda" means "knowledge." It is the universal and timeless knowledge about the connections and laws of nature, which are valid at all times. They affect us, whether we are aware of them or not. It is up to us to recognize them and to apply them to our lives, in order to be able to lead a life in harmony with nature and our soul. About 5000 years ago, this knowledge was written down in the so-called Vedic scriptures by Rishi (seer) Vyasa in order to preserve it throughout the current cycle.  


The current cycle, now ending, is called Kaliyuga (Age of Darkness). It is the most materialistic and disharmonious of all the ages. It is also called the age of disharmony, war, separation and strife. In this age, mankind does not live in harmony with nature and the laws of nature. Egoism as well as materialism have a high status in society. As a result, the disharmonious energies in nature continue to increase. 


Currently, people and the earth are in a very large and comprehensive process of upheaval and departure. From the point of view of nature, mankind and the earth are passing from a Kaliyuga, the energetically lowest-frequency and most disharmonious of all ages to a Satyayuga, the energetically highest-frequency and most harmonious of all ages. In a Satyayuga (Age of Truthfulness), people once again live peacefully together and in harmony with themselves, nature, and the laws of nature. However, before we can fully enter the new age, humanity is required to purify itself of all egoic motives as well as inner and outer disharmonious energies.

MPAY- A great gift to humankind

Before it becomes clear at this point why MPAY is such a great gift to humanity, it is first important to know some more background. Everything in nature is ensouled: animals, plants, people, trees, planets, etc.. The consciousness of every living being vibrates on a certain frequency level. This frequency level determines the reality and perception from which a being lives and creates its reality. The higher the frequency level of a being's consciousness, the more unconditional love, pure intentions, intuition, selflessness, forgiveness, inner peace and joy a being has realized and the more it lives in harmony with its destiny as well as the laws of nature and the closer it is to the highest divine source. The lower the frequency level of consciousness is, the more the consciousness is permeated with conditional love, self-centered motives, attachments to emotions and inner hurts. In order to raise the frequency level, it takes a process of transformation and purification of consciousness from all disharmonious aspects within us.


When the soul leaves the body, it passes to the spiritual dimensions after the transition. It enters that level in the subtle worlds that resonates with its soul frequency. Just as there are different levels of consciousness on earth, so there are in the spiritual worlds. What is unique on earth is that beings with the most diverse levels of consciousness live together. This does not exist in the spiritual world. There, beings with the same consciousness live and work together. What is special on earth is that all living beings, regardless of their level of consciousness, are given the opportunity to change their consciousness and develop in one direction or another. So, every soul has the possibility to grow also in the direction of more unconditional love, forgiveness, etc. This increases the state of the soul in the subtle worlds. This has an influence on which levels of experience we attract in this world, but also on the other side after our transition.


Since the whole universe is ensouled and animated, there are not only on the earth, but also on the subtle levels, which are not visible to most people, entities that work from the background from the different frequency and consciousness levels for the good of the earth and humanity. This is especially the case now, in the time of transition. Thus, there are angels, archangels, ascended masters and other entities from the light-filled planes that support the current transformation process. In the coming years we will establish more and more contact with these planes and communicate with them in a natural way.


There is a kind of natural hierarchy in nature. Beings who have brought to perfection the highest qualities of consciousness, such as unconditional love, forgiveness, selflessness, work from the highest levels of creation. Their being is permeated with the greatest possible benevolence, the greatest purity, mercy, selflessness, harmony and unconditional love. It is important to understand that the higher the frequency level of these beings, the more powerful is their work and are their blessings for the Earth and humanity.


Beings that work from the highest light level of creation for the ascension process of humanity are the Rishis and Siddhas. "Rishi" means "seer." "Siddha" means "perfection." They are beings, beyond religion and dogma, who have realized the highest possible consciousness. One could also say that they are the right hand of God and work in absolute harmony with His will. Tirelessly they work and act so for the preservation and protection of the energetic balance of man and earth.


From this highest level of action and frequency, MPAY was given to humanity as a powerful tool of transformation by Agastya Rishi, one of the founders of the Palm Leaf Biblitoheques, to assist humanity in its inner process of self-liberation and unfoldment at the highest level. MPAY is a practice that works and operates absolutely in harmony with nature. 

What are the Palm Leaf Libraries?

The palm leaf library is a great mystery that completely challenges the material worldview that prevails today. In them, thousands of years ago, the soul journeys of millions of people living today have been written down on palm leaves. In addition, the palm leaf libraries are a memory and guardian of the original history of mankind, a knowledge that is accessible to the world so far mostly only in distorted form. In total, there are twelve palm leaf libraries spread all over India.


The palm leaf libraries were founded about 5000 years ago by the Sapta Rishis, the seven great sages. "Sapta" means "seven." A Rishi is a "seer" who has the gift of receiving highly inspired and absolute knowledge (knowledge that is valid at all times) from the divine source and transmitting it in a pure, unadulterated way. Sri Agastya Rishi is one of the founders of the palm leaf libraries. 


With regard to the palm leaf libraries, there are two forms: the Nadi Sastra and the Jiva Nadi. The Nadi Sastra can be thought of as a kind of library. Some of the information about a person's soul path was written down on palm leaves over 4000 years ago and is waiting to be transmitted to its recipient today. The Jiva Nadi is a direct link to the spiritual world. Various Rishis, such as Agastya, transmit information directly from the subtle world to people guided by them. 


All the information related to MPAY was transmitted by Agastya Rishi through the Jiva Nadi. For example, that MPAY not only helps to purify one's own consciousness, but that anyone who practices it also greatly increases the frequency of light in the collective. He also let it be known that once the soul is initiated, it will be so for several lifetimes. This is especially significant when one understands that on the other hand and also in the future, every thought, whether positive or negative, manifests or will manifest immediately.

About Stephanie Bunk

Outer Journey

I was born in 1982 in a little timber-frame house in the small city of Höxter, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. After graduating high school, I studied Psychology in college. Once I received my diploma, I spent four years working for Caritas as a Family and Life Counselor in the Allgäu region of Germany. At the time, I also studied part-time to become a Yoga teacher. For the last ten years I have been giving single and group Yoga lessons for adults and children. 


Since December 2015 I am an associate professor at the European Academy of Ayurveda in Birnstein, Germany. I was part of the team that established the training program for Meditation Coaching. Additionally, I am also giving more and more lectures in the areas of psychology and Ayurveda. At the academy I have completed a 3-year-program to become an Ayurvedic Psychology Therapist. I am a soon-to-be Yoga Therapist and have started studying Ayurvedic Medicine in 2019, besides that. I am also an author and a musician. 


All of these experiences along the way, all of my knowledge in the areas of Yoga, Ayurveda, Meditation, psychotherapy, personal development and healing, are flowing together in my work to create a holistic approach. I am looking forward to getting to know you and supporting and inspiring you on your pilgrimage of the heart.


Inner Journey

Up until the year 2011 I had led a relatively normal life. I had a great job and was in a long-term relationship.  Even though my life seemed perfect on the outside, I knew deep in my heart that there was something else out there, waiting for me.

Then, in 2011, my heart received its inner calling, a fact I could not ignore. At the time I knew that one life cycle was ending and that it was imperative for myself and my journey to follow this calling. I decided to let go of everything and spend a year in Mexico. This is where, little by little, the voice of my heart revealed my future way to me. During my time in Mexico I was fortunate to learn many old Mayan and Aztec traditions. Those ground-breaking insights were very meaningful to my future journey. However, I would only understand the bigger picture and the true impact of these experiences during the time I would later spend in India.


In January of 2013 I initially returned to Germany for a short period of time. But in August of the same year my journey took me to India, where I spent the next 5 months. This is where my spiritual teachers Agastya Rishi and Lubamitra became part of my life. That inner guidance, that I already felt in Mexico, was not part of my imagination, it was real, and now it had a name. Since October 2013 my spiritual journey is guided by the Palm-Leaf- Library in India.  


In January 2014 I returned from India and opened the Yoga and Siddha Center in Markdorf at Lake Constance in May 2014. It was in the same year that I was blessed with the ability to perform MPAY initiations for others.


On 11/19/2019 I went on a 2.5-month long trip through Europe. Within those 2.5 months I was able to visit 13 countries. I returned from my trip at the end of January 2020. During this meaningful time, full of wonderful experiences that have deeply moved me, I received the impulse to write another book to share my experiences with people from all over. This is just one of my current endeavors. I am currently writing this book in harmony and with the help of the spiritual world.
