Bhakti Yoga – Open Your Heart!

Experience devotion in daily life.

An introduction to the path of Bhakti Yoga, awakening the divine love within you. Bhakti brings compassion, empathy and kindness into your life. Bhakti is love, it is our true essence – whether we express it towards others, ourselves or to God. Bhakti is universal and shows us the divine in all – breaking down illusions of separation between the individual and others.

In today’s world, Bhakti is not about searching for love, but about recognising it within us in its purest form.

This special two-day course will touch upon:

Day 1 – What is Bhakti Yoga?

  • The types of Bhakti
  • The 9 elements of Bhakti Yoga
  • The 5 Bhavas

Day 2 – How to apply Bhakti Yoga in daily life? 

  • How can we develop Bhakti within?
  • How does Bhakti or devotion manifest in our lives?
  • How can Bhakti Bhava help us live a peaceful life?
  • How can we apply Bhakti to all that we do?

Presented by Swami Janardananda, direct disciple of Swami Vishnudevananda. For over two decades Swamiji has been engaged in mentoring children and young adults from local villages in Uttarkashi. Swamiji also guides the staff and students at the centres and ashrams of Sivananda India.

Tattva Bodha – Discovering the Truth

An eight-day exploration into basic vedanta

आनंद: क:? सुखस्वरुप: What is Bliss? It is of the nature of absolute happiness…

I desire happiness, yet I am unable to experience it most of the time. What is ‘real’ and what is ‘unreal’? What is the goal of life? Ancient wisdom has proved consistently that right knowledge can lead us to a more meaningful, peaceful life. Tattvabodha by the great sage Adi Sankaracharya is an ideal introduction to the principles of advaita vedanta. Immerse yourself in this profound knowledge of the ultimate Truth, where in two separate four-day sessions we examine the different aspects of existence, arriving at a deeper understanding of the unity of all things and the nature of the Self.

Presented by Srinivas Pulluri, a traditional teacher of Yoga, Vedanta and Sanskrit studies. Srinivas ji is guest faculty at the Sivananda International Ashrams in India and Thailand, and has lectured on Vedantic studies and yoga philosophy the world over. He has currently taken his expertise online to help spread the ancient wisdom of yoga.
