Jaya Kula turns 15 this year. Our theme is “Welcome! Celebrating our Shared Belonging.” We’re celebrating and welcoming all with a full weekend of worship, sadhana, kirtan, teachings, and dance.

Explore the Cave of the Heart

Join Shambhavi and the Jaya Kula community for heart-based sadhana followed by community kirtan jam! We visit the heart space, also called the cave of the heart, to directly encounter our real nature and the compassionate wisdom that permeates all of reality. These simple, beautiful practices of the heart soothe and move and teach us who we really are.

All musical instruments from any musical genres are welcome!

Hope to see you at this very special gathering and for all of the gatherings and events happening this weekend.

All of Jaya Kula’s 15th Anniversary events and teachings are offered as a gift to the community.


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
