Aham Shoonyam ~ I am no-thing
Aham Shoonyam is a Sanskrit term that means “I am nothing” or “I am no thing”. Our true nature is pure awareness, which is not mind or body, it is no object or thing. The words Aham Shoonyam remind us of our true nature, and also that the psychological “I” is nothing, it is not real. It is an invitation to be ego-less, to be free of the psychological self.
Self realisation, or awakening, is the realisation that one’s true nature is pure awareness. It is the direct experience and understanding that one’s true nature is not the psychological self - the body and mind - that so many of us are identified with, but the all-inclusive, boundless and non-judgemental awareness that witnesses all experiences.
Regardless of whether you are a beginner in meditation or an expert, you are just a breath away from the ultimate source. It is not about distance, time or your speed. It is about how ready you are to let go of your entanglement and identity to completely surrender to the flow of life - Aham Shoonyam

Teachings & Lineage
The Himalayas are well known as an abode of great awakened beings and masters. Some are known and most of them remain unknown. They blossomed like beautiful flowers, spread their fragrances and when the time came, left their bodies.
Paroksh is a Sanskrit word which means anonymous or something which is not in front of you. There are many paroksh yogis or unknown anonymous yogis who spread their spiritual vibes without ever coming out in mainstream society. Whoever needs guidance, somehow reaches them.
Aham Shoonyam Foundation is a group of some of these yogis who are trying to share many different types of spiritual wisdom of unknown yogis in one place. These yogis follow Guru-Shishya (teacher-student) legacy, which was started by ancient Himalayan yogis and was revived by Adi Shankacharya in the 8th century.
