Join us for this wonderful talk with Chuck Linke on “adhikara”, making a wholehearted effort to being a dedicated student of the Tradition.
The Himalayan Yoga Tradition, from time immemorial, has been passed on experientially in an unbroken chain from master to disciple. This has resulted in an unbroken lineage whose continuity is ensured through transmission in meditative and initiatory states. Chuck will explore a few of the preparations for developing Adhikara, a readiness to enter into that unbroken chain of transmission.
· Calming to become a stilled vessel to receive these transmissions.
· Expansion of one’s capacity and ability to receive the next layer.
· Recognizing one’s own readiness.
The word “adhikara” has many meanings and definitions. One meaning is a teacher’s authority; a student’s fulfillment of a qualification, and simply the statement of commencement,” from the “Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Volume 1 Samadhi Pada,” Pandit Usharbudh Arya, D.Litt., page 66.
