Foundations in the view and practices of Trika Shaivism with Shambhavi Sarasvati

Jaya Kula Foundations is a three-day immersion for people wishing to learn about the View of the direct realization tradition of Trika Shaivism and to establish a daily practice. It is the prerequisite for many of Jaya Kula’s advanced trainings. 

Students will come away with a clear understanding of the view of direct realization Tantra and a complete spiritual practice. However, there is no commitment to practice associated with this teaching. 

Trika Shaivism, also known as Kashmir Shaivism, is the classical direct realization Tantrik tradition from North India. It is related in its view and methods to other direct realization traditions such as Dzogchen, Daoism and Chan Buddhism.

The essence of all direct realization traditions is the understanding that we have an innate capacity to directly discover the nature of Reality using our own minds and senses. Self-realization means coming to more fully embody enlightened essence nature by relaxing the tensions that temporarily obscure our experience of it.

Trika Shaivism is distinguished by its emphasis on the heart as the gateway to primordial wisdom.
