The philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism has aptly been described as – ‘The Mystical Geography of Awareness’. These teachings not only give a straight forward and clear explanation of the nature of reality, but also outline the means by which any individual can have the direct experience of this reality.

Kashmir Shaivism is unique in its understanding of Grace and its importance. It recognizes that in the world of spirituality there are nine levels of Grace. Grace appears in small and large ways in each of our lives. Learn how great yogis experience Grace and how to ask for and recognize Grace within your own spiritual awakening.

Comments from participants of previous webinars:

“One of the most tangible, practical and accessible teachings that perfectly marries the world of science and spirituality and provides tools that all of us can use to make the world into a better place.”

– Jody R. Weiss

According to the many positive testimonials, one of the biggest benefits of the previous course was its application to a person’s everyday life.

“Thank you very much for the just concluded and enlightening Webinar series! I grew up in Srinagar and had heard about Swamiji, but never had the good fortune to either meet him in person, or to listen to his commentaries while growing up.  You, through your assiduous work, have allowed people like myself to go back in time and relive moments, as though in the presence of dear Swamiji. Kudos to you all!

The series was very well conducted and the topic chosen, the Bodhapañcadaśikā, was simple, yet profound. I look forward to more seminars from the Academy. I am sure, having spent a number of years with Swamiji, you folks are in the best position to select the next topic.”

– Dr. Jatinder Bhan

“I was very pleased and delighted with all of them, learned immensely from the materials and the downloads especially the audios of Swamiji and subsequent commentaries. It was like a mini retreat. Or, maybe I could say, it was analogous to the concept of Yoga in action in the sense that Swamiji’s birthday retreat and Swamiji’s Mahasamadhi Havan and retreat were like our daily meditations early and late. Then the webinar was like the “Yoga in Action” strengthening the practice in between.

Jai Guru Dev”
Bruce Catalano

“I want to congratulate all of you at the Academy for reaching this milestone of conducting a successful webinar. This was a great experience for me after a long time. I enjoyed every minute of it and look forward to the next one.

Thank you all for doing this.
Jai Guru Dev!!”
