The Upanishads - the Source of Yoga with Swami Kashi
starts Saturday 09 may 2020 at 10:00
The Upanishads are poetic and passionate texts within the ancient Vedic scriptures where the mystical experience of yoga was first expressed. The word yoga refers to a sublime state of union with divine consciousness. Later, yogic practices for the mind, emotions and body arose to enter into this divine state. In this program, Swami Kashi gives an overview of the Upanishads with reference to selected texts to increase our understanding, expounding as well on the great sayings of the Upanishads called the Mahavyakyas.

Style: Advaita Vedanta
Advaita Vedanta is a non-dualistic school of Hindu philosophy and religious practice, and one of the classic Indian paths to spiritual realization. The term Advaita refers to its idea that the soul (true Self, Atman) is the same as the highest metaphysical Reality (Brahman). Adherents seek spiritual liberation through acquiring vidyā (knowledge) of one's true identity as Atman, and the identity of Atman and Brahman. Go to the Advaita Vedanta page.
