Late last year, Satguru Bodhinatha got inspired to improve Himalayan Academy’s formal study program for the Master Course trilogy. He wanted to inject more practical, specific exercises into student’s study, such as learning how to chant Aum properly, learning how to perform Ganesha puja, improving specific character qualities and more.
It was also felt that if a student actually fulfilled these new study requirements that we could accelerate his or her progress. Today we are pleased to announce that the new program is going into effect.
The new study program lasts 15 months total, instead of three years. It does not have separate levels and does not require any commitment to become a formal sishya (commitments come afterwards).
To see a fuller description of the new program, please visit our Master Course Study page--
My obeisance to Lord Vigna Vinayaga & Satguru Bodhinatha.
Thank you Satguruji.Though I am not able to do all that’s lovingly prescribed to us devotees I am grateful to the Gurus of this lineage & an overwhelming feeling engulfs me in uplifting the core of me.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Control of Thought, Includes Purifying the Subconscious" (January 14, 2015)
Mechanism for major change in the subconscious mind from an ordinary to a spiritual state. Vasana Daha Tantra to clear suppressed memories. Be observant of what's going on inside. Devotion helps us to have the humility to admit our mistakes, to know at our essence we are a divine being. Refining, purifying the subconscious mind. Changing, restraining the nature of the samskaras.
