Darshan - it is to behold. It is to be able to perceive. Perceive what? In a way the term "darshan" simply means beholding one´s own truth that has been reflected back... as long as your truth is reflected back to you, that is what the term means; as long as you are able to perceive even for a moment, for a fraction of a moment, THAT what you are. That is by definition what darshan is...
~ Igor Kufayev
This is an invitation and an opportunity to join Igor Kufayev for an Online Darshan Program, a transmission to deepen your meditative practice and resolve specific questions relevant to your journey.
Next online Darshan

COST: 10 GBP
Please send a donation by clicking the button below.
The entire Online Darshan is recorded, and you will be able to play it back as many times as you wish, until the next webinar is aired. Thus, even if you are unable to attend live, you can register and receive a link to the recorded program as soon as the webinar is over.
What can you expect?
The online Darshan is an opportunity to have your personal questions addressed by Igor. The 2-hour program begins with a short guided meditation followed by a question and answer session. Please send your questions for Igor at least a day in advance of the darshan to Daryananda. Your identity will be kept anonymous. Please provide a brief background which explains why this issue/question is relevant to your journey, and then clearly state your question. This helps Igor to know what is in your heart, so that he can directly address your question and provide an in-depth answer.
How to register?
Whenever possible, please make your donation of 10 GBP to register in advance. If you wish to receive the webinar as a gift, please send your request to Yogananda in advance; the first 20 requests will be granted each month. Only after registering — by either making a donation or requesting the webinar as a gift in advance — will you receive an email containing the link to our webinar channel, and the required password for that program. Please note that this email will be sent to you just prior to the start of the webinar.
How do I access the webinar?
You can access the webinar via a computer, tablet, iphone or using a smart phone app.
Join us on our webinar channel. The required password for admission to the program will be emailed to you shortly before the darshan begins. Simply follow the link.
Please join the meeting in good time about 15 minutes early allowing you time to set up with any audio and visual on your computer; you will be able to watch a slideshow of images of Igor and the Flowing Wakefulness community approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of the program. Once you have "joined" the meeting, please get comfortable, and be ready to begin on time; Igor will join us once we have settled, and will lead us in a short guided meditation.

Understanding the meaning of Darshan
Darshan, satsang (“getting together in truth”), gathering — it is irrespective of the time we live in. It is irrespective of the current climate. It´s irrespective of what occupations we have, irrespective of our jobs, held professions, secretly held aspirations — or not so secretly. It´s just that. It is for a moment to gather in the name of THAT which is our essence —our truth. It represents the truth which transcends any concept, any idea — any preconceived or conceived idea — any religion, creed, order, philosophy or any held system. That is what satsang is for. That is by definition what these gatherings are for. And very little has changed through the long corridor of time. Very little!
The essence of the spiritual path is not so much in gaining, but in simply uncovering that which is already there. And that is what darshan is. Successful darshan, successful satsang is that — it is to peel the layers, to remove yet another layer, so that the truth can shine forth on its own; that truth can shine forth.
Truth is not something we hold. It´s not something we even need to remember. That truth, by definition, is given. It is the very core of our being. Remembrance here is in a different way. It´s in relation to recognition. It´s to recognize what we are — beyond form and appearance or even held precepts and concepts, be they the most amazingly wise and revelatory in nature. The revelation of the truth of the Self as the light of the sun makes all other lights pale in comparison. This is what the Truth of the Self is...
