For Spiritual Students From Around The World Who Want To Learn ‘Kashmir Shaivism’.

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.

SWAMI LAKSHMANJOOAs 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 know their own divinity and fully recognize ‘The Mystical Geography of Awareness’.

This webinar series, designed for students of all levels, will be led by long time devotees John and Denise Hughes and George Barselaar. Each class lasts one hour and will include original audio lectures, clarifications, discussions and questions.
