With Shambhavi Sarasvati
October 24-27

Learn a seated six realms purification practice from the Dzogchen lineage of Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. This is a largely internal practice with visualization and mantra.

Shambhavi received this sadhana from Rinpoche and practiced it diligently. Along the way, the practice revealed itself to be both devotional and healing, not just for oneself, but for others.

Shambhavi is pleased to be able to offer this teaching after many years.

About the teacher

Shambhavi Sarasvati

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
