What is Guru Yoga?

Guru Yoga means discovering that the enlightened essence nature of the Guru is the same as and continuous with your own real nature. Guru can be in the form of a living person, an enlightened being or a symbol of unconditioned wisdom, such as a lotus.

Guru Yoga is related to transmission. The practices of Guru Yoga are designed to give you an opportunity to receive a more direct transmission of your real nature and to abide in that.

In general, Guru Yoga can be practiced most fruitfully when students have already recognized enlightened essence nature and have some degree of confidence in that recognition–whether they have recognized it through transmission from a living teacher or enlightened being such as an Avatar or Buddha,  directly in themselves or in some other way through practice or grace.

What you will receive

  • A complete teaching in the nature of Guru Yoga
  • Opportunities to learn and practice various methods of Guru Yoga

Prerequisites and requirements
