About the teacher

Shambhavi

 

Shambhavi Sarasvati is the spiritual director of Jaya Kula. Her principle training is in the View and practices of Trika Shaivism, the classical Tantrik tradition of Kashmir, and the Dzogchen tradition of Tibet.

Spiritual practice is a way to find out who you really are and to live in the fullness of Reality. This is Self-realization. Nothing more or less.” —Shambhavi

Every effort will be made to provide housing for out of town students.

Satsang with Shambhavi

Sunday, September 24, 2017
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Satsang with Shambhavi
Matrika House, Portland ME

Satsang = Being in Reality Together

Come learn, have fun, find community, sing
and remember who you really are.

Satsang is a lively, ancient spiritual practice from India. People gather for a relaxed, “anything goes” conversation about the nature of reality, self-realization, spiritual life, and all aspects of human experience from the most ordinary to the most cosmic.

Exactly what happens at satsang?

We chant some chants. Then Shambhavi leads a free-flowing conversation during which people ask questions about anything. The conversation is followed by open-mic, community kirtan.

What is community kirtan?

Kirtan is call and response singing accompanied by musical instruments such as harmonium, drums, bells and whatever other instruments people like to play!

We play kirtan together as a community in the ancient style. Anyone can lead the singing, or play an instrument. The emphasis is on having fun and feeling the joy of singing together. We have a harmonium and loads of percussion instruments that anyone can play. Mistakes are part of the fun.

Please join us for these unique and inspiring evenings.
