with Shambhavi Sarasvati
Join Shambhavi and friends in spontaneous worship every week. We chant mantras, sing kirtan, meditate, breathe, connect, and heal.
The heart, the heart space, and the cave of the heart are each ways in which Trika Shaivism describes the essence of reality and the means to encounter living presence.
Each year, Shambhavi chooses a theme for us to learn about, contemplate, practice with, and embody. Jaya Kula’s theme for 2023 is “Belonging.”
In honor of this theme, we come together in the spirit of worship and in order to realize the View more thoroughly that everyone and everything here belongs here equally from the beginning.
“The realization of things as they really are and the supreme festival of your worship—one is intertwined with the other—and they always blossom in those who are ﬁlled with devotion.” ~ Utpaladeva
Give What You Can.
Live in Portland, Oregon every first Saturday of the month at 10am.
About the teacher
Shambhavi emphasizes the more explicitly devotional teachings and practices of Trika Shaivism and Dzogchen and direct knowing through encounters with the wisdom of the heart. She is also known for making complex teachings about the nature of the self and reality understandable, practical, and always relatable to everyday experience. Her teachings are grounded in her more than thirty-five years of daily personal practice and personal retreats.
“Generosity is a fountain of living light at the heart of creation. Having opened your heart and recognized its identity with the heart of the divine, you want to be here giving and giving throughout your natural lifetime. This is the essence of realization.” ~Shambhavi
