The Guru Gita is a cosmic dialogue between The God of Gods Shiva and his benevolent Goddess Parvati on the divine nature and role of a Guru in a human's life. In reality, the Goddess knows all reality as Shiv and Shakti are one, but for the sake of humanity, she takes the form of a Goddess so that humanity may learn from this dialogue. This ancient Hindu scripture is has been the foundation of the learned masters and explores the pure guru-shishya relationship.
Once Bhagwan Shiv was sharing the Supreme Truth with some rishis. As the rishis paid their reverence to him, Bhagwan Shiv gave his reverence to someone else. Goddess Parvati was confused by seeing this and out of curiosity asked Bhagwan Shiv whom he had bowed down to. The great God of Gods informed her that he was bowing down to the Guru, thus further adding fuel to her curiosity. She urged him to elaborate on the role and nature of a Guru for the benefit of all humanity. Bhagwan Shiv honored her request by dispelling the reality of Guru through mantras that came to be known as the Guru Gita. Written by the great rishi, Ved Vyas, the Guru Gita is a part of the holy Skanda Puran. The wisdom of Guru Gita invokes and strengthens love and devotion in a spiritual seeker. It also inspires every seeker to become like the learned masters by realizing the inner light that exists in everyone.
The Shiv Sutra was revealed to and written down by an ancient Vasugupta in India. The Sutras are considered to be of divine origin. It is one of the most important resources of spirituality in the world. It outlines the teachings of Kashmir Shaivism and its focus on Advaita (non-dualism). The focus is on attaining the Ultimate Reality in which everything is created and dissolved by Bhagwan Shiv to understand his nature by projecting us as his extensions all over the universe. This ultimate state of existence is called Param Shiv and is beyond the understanding by the common human mind which is full of Maya. For attaining this state of Shiv for those who remember to reside in their inherent-self-nature, which is of the nature of Shiva, no effort or no way is needed. For everyone else, there are three ways for the attainment of Param Shiv described in the Shiv Sutra.
Is a system of the ancient Yogic and Tantrik teachings aimed at non-duality. According to this philosophy, there is no difference between God and Us. instead of the rather the regressive view that God is a supreme creator this tradition from the Kashmir region of India practiced by those who follow the Shaivism branch of Sanatan dharma see god and us as one. This profound tradition, long enshrouded in secrecy, is available to us today due to long-time efforts to make it public to genuine seekers; it reveals the ascent of individual consciousness to universal God Consciousness. This subject is the key to the tradition that unlocks its secrets and provides the disciple with the tools necessary to venture into his/her own God Consciousness.
During this module, we will present the deeper tradition of Tantra, its multidimensional vision of the Divine and its transformative practices of mantra and meditation that take us far beyond the outer models of how Tantra is usually presented today. This will expand your horizons about masculine and feminine energies, Self and world, the universe and the Absolute into a living experience of the Infinite and Eternal both within and around you.
The mythical and mystical energy of mantras is as intact today as it was thousands of years ago. All you need to know is how to invoke a mantra. We will study an interpretation of the philosophy and the reality of the mantric approach to yoga. This module aims at covering all the essentials and fundamentals of invoking the timeless mantras for material and spiritual fulfillment. Taking an in-depth view of the origin of mantras, why and how mantras work, how to choose a mantra and invoke it, how to succeed in mantra sadhana and everything else you need to know about mantra yoga.
Advanced Raja Yoga practice
Patañjali’s expounded The Yoga Sutra a few hundred years before Christ. It is one of the 6 main schools of Hindu philosophy. In it the legendary rishi lays down the blueprint for achievement in yoga; currently practiced the planet over. Patañjali attracts upon several concepts of his time and before and compiles it into a singular work of Hindu ethics that has been the foundational philosophy of yoga since.
The Yoga Sutras sets out a magical theory of ethical psychological science and maybe the oldest theory of analysis. For Patañjali; each thought tendencies shaped one's present behavior ad character in reaction to one's past experiences. He argues that folks aren't helpless against such forces which and can radically alter their lives through yoga—a method of ethical transformation and perfection; that brings the body and mind of someone in line with their true nature. We will study an extended introduction that explains the challenges of accurately translating Indian philosophical texts; locate the historical antecedents of Patañjali’s text and situate Patanjali’s philosophy inside the history and contrast of scholastic Indian philosophy.
