Considering what is going on in the world, we feel 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 of uplifting 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.
WE WILL TAKE A BREAK ON MAY, 28th, after finishing the Bhagavad Gita and continue on the 4th of June, with the “Hymns to Shiva, Utpaladeva’s Shivastotravali”. This devotional text was much revered by Swamiji. Read more…
We hope you join us on Saturdays at 8 am Pacific Time, 11:00 am EST (New York), 4 pm GMT (London), 8:30 pm IST(India), 1 am on Sunday AEDT.

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
