Jaya Kula is a vibrant nonprofit community offering opportunities to learn and practice in the direct realization traditions of Trika Shaivism and Dzogchen
We try our best (and sometimes manage) to approach our day-to-day lives as an opportunity to wake up. Most of us also maintain a substantial daily seated practice. We like mantra, meditation, kriya yoga, kirtan, ritual, hatha yoga, seva and Ayurvedic self care. Shambhavi Sarasvati is our Spiritual Director.
Our main teaching centers are at 159 State Street in Portland, Maine and at Daya Foundation in Portland, Oregon.
If we want to discover our real nature, we must learn to follow what incites us to act honestly, open-heartedly and fearlessly, rather than listening to the clamoring of fears, distractions and diversions. — from Returning by Shambhavi Sarasvati
