On the day following the Mahasamadhi Celebration, the Lakshmanjoo Academy will hold a bi-annual four-day study retreat.

Each day will begin at 9 a.m. with meditation and recitation of Sanskrit verses, personally selected by Swamiji for worship.

Study: Drawing from the sacred revelations given by Swamiji, we will examine a number of important texts central to the philosophy of this great tradition known as Kashmir Shaivism. At the same time we will acquaint ourselves with the core principles and practices given by Swamiji for the attainment of the supreme reality about which he speaks.

Spiritual Practice: We will examine the fundamental elements and principles inherent in meditation and other forms of spiritual practice found in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, at the same time seeing how these fundamentals and principles are found in the practices contained in the Vijñāna Bhairava.

On each day of the retreat we will experience different meditations and other practical techniques to quiet the mind and expand awareness.
