  • Enlightenment (in the Vedanta tradition) is the journey of knowing the Self, abiding in the Self and seeing the same Self in others with love and compassion. Jyothi will guide you through the 3 practices of non dualistic Advaita Vedanta philosophy: Shravanam (listening), Mananam (contemplation) and Nidhidhyasanam (abiding in the Self). The question then arises, what role do these deities such as Ganesh, Shiva, Lakshmi, Buddha,Tara play in this journey?. Manoj will bring in statues of these deities and relate their symbolisms to our journey to enlightenment. Through humorous archetypical story telling, discover your Isthadevata (personal archetype), uncover their secret symbolisms and learn the five ways to work with them as part of a practice towards spiritual awakening. (This workshop is 80% lecture, 10% meditation, 5% Mantras and 5% light spiritual stretches)
