Considering what is going on in the world we felt deeply inspired to offer a FREE weekly online sangha for everybody, to have a place to connect from anywhere in the world and meet as a community with the goal to uplift humanity.

“Freedom from all our miseries can neither be obtained through the renunciation of the world, nor by hatred of this world, but by experiencing the presence of God everywhere.” ~Abhinavagupta

For this important venture, we have chosen the guidance of the Bhagavad Gita in the Light of Kashmir Shaivism as revealed (in video format) by Swami Lakshmanjoo. This was one of the last teachings Swamiji left with us before leaving this world.

Join us Saturdays at 8 am Pacific Time, 11:00 am EST (New York), 3:00 pm GMT (London), 8:30 pm (India). Check your timezone here.


In the Bhagavad Gītā, Lord Kṛṣṇa (God incarnate) instructs his disciple Arjuna about the world and the nature of life. Why is our mind torn by conflicting duties and loyalties? What is the main purpose of our life? How are we to be freed from the pain and suffering we experience living in this world?


Swami Lakshmanjoo answers these questions by unveiling the heretofore hidden meanings contained within the Bhagavad Gītā. Swamiji tells us, “the freedom from all our miseries, as Abhinavagupta boldly declares, can neither be obtained through the renunciation of the world, nor by hatred towards this world, but by experiencing the presence of God everywhere.”


As a realized master Swami Lakshmanjoo (1907-1991) both understood and experienced the essence of this universal teaching. Throughout his lifetime he freely invited everyone to explore the means by which they could recognize and experience the reality of their own divinity.

Join us for:

  • meditation practices that ground us
  • video lessons by Swami Lakshmanjoo
  • discussions with John, Denise, and George
  • question and answers

      Here’s our answer;

      We meditate twice a day, watch our breath as much as we can, and follow the yamas and niyamas.

      Love John & Denise

    Have read some of Swami Laksmanjoo’s Teachings (difficult understand but trying).

    Visited his Ashram-House in Jammu and paid respects to Bhairava Temple there.

    Attended some Satsang, Birthday and Samadhi days in Mumbai, some times ago.

    Just wants to keep in touch with the Kashmir Shaivisam.
