Thursday Satsang: “Introduction to Sri Vidya – Part V” with Michael Smith
For the Thursday Evening Presentation at The Meditation Center, there will a projector showing of sections of Swami Rama’s 2nd Lecture on Sri Vidya.
Swami Rama explains how to incorporate will power (sankalpa shakti), contemplation, prayer and internal dialogue into one’s daily practice to sharpen one’s intuition.
These talks are particularly valuable in terms of one’s yoga sadhana.
If you can’t make it Thursday evening, there will be another showing of these talks Sunday Morning at the Bhagavad Gita session, as they definitely pertain to the main theme of the Gita: “skillfulness in actions.”
Sri Vidya is considered to be the supreme path in the Himalayan Yoga Tradition. Swami Rama said, “Sri Vidya is the highest of all vidyas.” Swami Veda said that it was “God’s science of the universe.”
The Meditation Center teachers have been presenting a series of Thursday talks, focused around Swami Rama’s lectures on Sri Vidya, that will provide students with a basic knowledge of the “territory” and preparatory Sri Vidya practices, supplemented with guidelines and resources on how to approach these profound teachings.
This Thursday, Michael Smith, will be presenting Part V of the Sri Vidya series.
You’re invited to get acquainted with the Center’s community of students and teachers by participating in our Thursday night community gathering (satsang). Whether you are new to yoga or an experienced practitioner you will enjoy sharing in satsang with friends you know and ones you will make.
