Symbolism of Yogic Deities: Their Relevance Today
Friday, July 29 - 4pm
Lecture with Dr. Manoj Chalam
Discover how knowing and working with your Archetypes profoundly shifts your personal or professional life and spiritual practice. These Archetypes, or Isthadevatas, reside deep into our collective Unconscious and help us especially during moments of life transitions. In this unique workshop, Manoj will bring in statues and relate the symbolisms of Hindu & Buddhist deities to archetypes within us. Discover how these ancient teachings have practical relevance to your life in today's society, bringing peace of mind as well as uncovering our underlying common spirit. The deepest Bhakti filled understanding of these symbolisms along with the non-dualistic teachings of Vedanta and Tantra inspire us in this journey of Yogic Awakening. Philosophy Lecture with Mantras and Meditation. Everybody welcome.
