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 Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
