Patron’s Complimentary Course I with Swami Viditatmananda & Pratyagbodhananda
August 15 @ 8:00 pm - August 18 @ 1:00 pm
Emotional maturity is understandably necessary to live a sane, productive life, pursuing one’s various goals. But what does it have to do with the pursuit of understanding oneself as limitless Brahman? In this course, Swamiji will explore the various aspects of emotional maturity, and how to cultivate them, showing how they not only connect but are essential to gaining and assimilating the knowledge that one is free from the human sense of limitation

Lord Rama himself relates to Shabari the nine forms of devotion, with which she is endowed. Such devotion leads to an appreciation that Lord Rāma is not, and has never been, separate from oneself. Swamiji will discuss each of these forms of devotion, teaching what we need to understand in order to imbibe them, and what are the practical steps we can take to help us assimilate them. Equipped with such devotion, one can live a sane life, and even, finally, understand the non-dual vision that removes all notions of separation.
