TRATAKA.jpeg

TRATAKA

Friday 12 August - 21 hr. CALA PADA 

Trataka is an ancient yogic technique to still the mind and enter into a meditative state. It literally means “to gaze” at a single point. By fixing the eyes on that single point it is said that energy activates and opens the third eye.

Together we learn about this technique, and practice it by gazing at the full moon.

Open yourself to the light of the moon...

You are the one who can open and see beyond the surface of all things, to recognize their true nature !

 

Bring your yoga mat, optional cushion and some mosquito repellant!

 

Herbal tea will be served at the end of the workshop.

 

 Should the moon be hidden behind clouds we will do candle gazing in the studio!

 

Includes theory of Trataka, pranayama & gentle asana to open the body,

What are bandhas ? What importance do they have in Asana and yoga practice and what is the point of including them as a part of our practice? And what does it have to do with kundalini energy?

 

In this workshop we learn about the three main bandhas as well about “Maha Bandha”, the “Master Lock”. We learn about the importance of applying them in our everyday practice and also learn when they should not be practiced.

SATSANG WITH MASTER SAMDARSHI, INDIA

Samdarshi Every year in Satya Sadhana Sasthan Ashram - Rishikesh & Goa 
Dates in Rishikesh: Starting November 2022
Dates in GOA : 15th January to 28th February 2023

Swami Prem Samdarshi was born in 1961 in Banda (near Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh, India), the oldest son of a cloth merchant. He instinctively knew the meditation technique of Vipassana and practiced it on his own until after meeting his Master, Osho, he learnt that what he had been practicing was an age old potent meditation technique. In 1983, he was initiated into Sannyas by Osho, after which He spent considerable time in Osho’s presence. Years of intense meditation followed during which He also tried variety of meditation techniques, but ultimately resorting to Vipassana.

 

After 7 years of intense sadhana, He attained enlightenment on April 2 1990. Depicting the experience Swami Samdarshi said: “All the knowledge of existence showered on me. All my existential questions were answered. My thirst was quenched. Finally, I came home.” Master Samdarshi presently organises Satsang retreats in Rishikesh, Manali, Goa (India) and tours across the globe at various times of the year offering daily Satsang, teaching meditation and answering seekers’ questions.

 

"Sat" means Truth and "Sang" means Company. Satsang means “in company of Truth”. In deep and intimate proximity with the Truth. A trusting and receptive communion with the Master who has attained the Truth. In a state of silence, open heart and deep love, the Master flows into the disciple. Satsang is an open event based on donations. Please contact us for more information.

 

"Love is your nature. You were born with it and have never been without it. Sharing is the way to your nature and as you reach your nature suddenly you will find you are full of love."

Samdarshi
