Marks of Spiritual Progress
Anil Saigal, RYT-5001:00 - 3:00 PM, Zoom Only
Each of us is on a spiritual journey. Some are moving towards the center, while others are going around the center, or even moving away from the center. For those of us who are earnestly engaged in practices and life style which bring about spiritual growth leading to enlightenment, the time seems short, and the journey seems long. As we become more aware of our spiritual progress, we are motivated to do more, to energize our practice. Join Anil and learn about the signs of spiritual progress which help us understand where we are and how far we have come. Each attendee will also receive a download of Swami Veda's talk on the Signs of Spiritual Progress.

Subtleties in Yama & Niyamawith Pandit Dabral, PhD, ERYT-500Saturday, Nov 20th, 1:00 - 3:00 PM (Zoom Only)
Patanjali introduced Ashtanga Yoga (Yoga of Eight Limbs) in his Yoga Sutra's seminal text on philosophy and practice of meditation leading to enlightenment. The first two of these eight limbs are Yama's and Niyama's. These limbs would form the rails of the ladder of the eight practices in Ashtanga Yoga. The Yama's and Niyama's purify our external relationships and bring about internal growth. They form the foundation of one's spiritual practice and understanding their role and their subtleties is essential to making good progress.Pandit Dabral is our spiritual director and is a disciple of Swami Rama & Swami Veda in Himalayan Tradition. He is a premier teacher within Himalayan Tradition and as both a Sanskrit scholar and a deep meditator, he is uniquely qualified to explain the intricacies of these two practices.
(Recommended for TTP200 and TTP300 students).
The Upanishads are the sacred texts of Yoga. Upanishad means “to sit nearby and listen”. It also means “secret teachings.” Compiled by sages during their deep meditative states, the Upanishads contain the eternal truths about the divinity in us. Swami Rama has written commentaries on several Upanishads. Kathopanishad is the story of a boy prince named Nachiketas who asks the Lord of Death questions about secrets of death. His answers contain truths about living a life leading to the eternal freedom.
