With careful study and persistent effort, one learns to convert one’s daily actions into a most powerful spiritual practice culminating in Self-Realization.
Raja Yoga Sutras
Raja Yoga literally means Royal Yoga. The Raja Yoga Sutras is an unparalleled work of ancient psychology, parapsychology and spirituality that presents practical guidelines and disciplines for attaining success in every aspect of life, ultimately leading to God-realization.
Yoga Vasistha was written by Sage Valmiki in the form of a dialogue between himself and his pupil, the young Prince Rama. It constitutes the basis of Advaita—or non-dualistic Vedanta.
This ancient scripture expounds on a wide variety of topics such as—Mysteries of the Soul, Death and Reincarnation, the Subtle Operations of the Unconscious Mind, and the techniques of spiritual enquiry and meditation.
This colorful Epic was originally written by Sage Valmiki in Sanskrit. It was embellished and re-written by Sage Tulsidas in the popular language of the people viz Hindi.
The Ramayana presents lofty ideals covering all relationships in life, which serve as an example for all to emulate, towards a highly cultured society. It encompasses the essence of Vedanta and when understood and reflected upon, becomes a powerful promoter of spiritual transformation, leading the way to Self Realization.
The fascinating and highly imaginative stories about Rama, take on a whole new dimension by the profound mystical interpretations in the discourses of Sri Swami Jyotirmayananda.
The Upanishads present the culminating wisdom of the Vedas, and are therefore widely known as “Vedanta.” Their wisdom rings with the message: “Brahman, (Absolute Self) is the only Reality; every soul is essentially Brahman, and that this world, experienced through the mind and senses, is Maya or illusory – like a mirage.”
The message of the Upanishads is timeless in its essence for the spiritual evolution of mankind.
Srimad Bhagavad Gita
Encompassed within the great Epic of the Mahabharata, which was composed by Sage Vyasa many centuries before Christ, the Gita is presented as a dialogue between Lord Krishna and His beloved disciple Arjuna.
It is one of the most succinct and profound philosophical and spiritual treatises on Vedanta philosophy. Universal in its exposition of man’s movement towards the fundamental understanding of one’s purpose in life, the Gita is a powerful means of attaining Self-Realization.
Discussion Circle sessions provide aspirants with a platform for spiritual discourse by presenting the opportunity to converse with other seekers about how the universal truths of Yoga, Advaita Vedanta, and other philosophical schools of thought can be applied to everyday life.
