~Sampradaya~

Sampradaya is a Sanskrit term, meaning “tradition” or “religious system.” It refers to a spiritual line of masters and their disciples that creates religious stability and integrity.

Sampradaya can also be described as a school of religious views, beliefs, attitudes and teachings passed on from one master to another. It is closely related to the term parampara referring to the lineage of the spiritual masters who carry and pass on the sampradaya.
