Exploration of Guru Gita
Chanting and understanding this powerful ancient song.
These classes are recordings of live online video classes I held with my students focused on the practice of chanting the Guru Gita. It approaches the topic of Guru from a spiritual perspective... as a conversation between Shiva, the first yogi and guru, and his wife Parvati.
The Guru Gita is an ancient song on the nature of the Guru or the Divine teacher.
The syllable "gu" represents the darkness of ignorance. The syllable "ru" represents the light of understanding. The "guru" is that power in the Universe that can lead us from darkness into Light. It is this power of the Guru that leads us from the Ajna chakra into the Sahasrar, from limited to unlimited.
In the mystical tradition of Yoga, the guru is much more than a person, it is a principle. It is a power in the Universe that guides us on our spiritual path. This sacred song, the Guru Gita, expounds in great detail that principle and power. Understanding this power of the Guru is a critical step in our spiritual evolution through Yoga.
Namaskar! My name is Ved and I support people who want to live in alignment with the spiritual principles of Yoga. Over the years I have had a close relationship with an enlightened Yoga master and have done my best to absorb the deeper practice of Yoga from him. I am very grateful for the opportunity to study yoga and share the practice with others. It is a great blessing to be part of a community seeking higher consciousness and balance in life.
