Mahāvākya – A Path to Freedom
The Mahāvākya–s are short statements, usually taken from the Upaniṣad-s, which distill and reveal profound Truths about the Divine (Brahma), the Self (Ātman), and the Universe.
These Mahāvākya–s offer a path to find answers to life’s key questions, and ultimately Self-Realization (Ātmavidyā) and/or ‘God-Realization’ (Brahmavidyā). While the Devatā Yoga series focused on the Symbolic Language of the Gāyatrī Mantra–s for each Deity, this series will focus on the Philosophical Language of the Mahāvākya–s.
Each class will offer a truly integrated practice using āsana, prānāyāma, chanting, and meditation with a focus on one of the great Mahāvākya–s, using a different one for each session.
Tuesdays, 10 – 10:45am PT
