Universal Nature of Yoga / DARSHAN

Friday, March 31, 2017

"The core of any teaching is that there is only this reality which is our reality, which is our essence. In ancient Tantric tradition, the very breathing itself is considered to be a mantra. That’s why some of the Indian teachers said that everyone is a yogi. Whether they know that or not, doesn’t matter, because yoga is not religion, and yoga is not standing on your head—it’s infinitely more."

— Igor Kufayev

The term Yoga has firmly entered many languages and there are many interpretations of what it means, varying from Unity of Sun & Moon to that of reconciliation of all opposites into Oneness of Being. Apart from many therapeutic applications and popular appeal, Yoga has its inner dimension and it is a science in its own right which deals with precise methodologies aimed at nothing less than total transformation of Consciousness. The body is viewed as the ultimate vehicle because it is here, within this very body, that the celebration of realization of one’s own nature is being made. This gathering is an invitation to delve into deeper dimensions of Yoga as the highest art which uses human potential as philosopher's stone to turn basic elements into pure gold of Unity-Consciousness.

The Path of the Heart / WEEKEND INTENSIVE

Direct Realization of One's Essential Nature

 

Saturday, April 1 – Sunday, April 2, 2017

 

“It is through the human Heart you know Shiva. It is through the human Heart you know you are the Absolute. There is no other instrumentality through which you and I can know that which can only know Itself. Only Shiva can know Itself…”

 

— Igor Kufayev

In Kashmir Shaivism we find that absolute, impenetrable understanding of the connection between the Ultimate Reality, known as Shiva, Pure Consciousness, and this world, as an impersonation of Shiva in the form of Shakti, as Energy.

 

Energy is not separate from its Source. The heat of the Sun is part of the Sun. You cannot separate the light of the Sun from the Sun itself. Pure Consciousness is present in every aspect of this reality. In every stone down in that brook; in every piece of wood that is cut down to construct this platform; in every blade of grass. That Pure Light of Supreme Consciousness is present—pulsating, vibrating.

 

The human being is found right in the epicenter of that process because it is through the Heart of the human being that Shiva knows himself, herself, itself. It is through the human Heart that you know Shiva; it is through the human Heart that you know you are the Absolute. There is no other instrumentality through which you and I can know that which can only know Itself. There is nothing else that knows Itself—only Shiva can know Itself.
