Yoga Sutra of Patanjali

 Recorded - September 13, 2012 - March 1, 2013

Swami_Purnatmananda_Giri_F The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali is an ancient Sanskrit text believed to have been written about 5000 years ago by the Indian sage Patanjali. This comprehensive scripture on yoga consists of four sections, exploring the subjects of samadhi (super conscious experience), sadhana (spiritual practice), vibhuti (benefits and yogic powers), and kaivalya (supreme liberation). The course will explore the first section of the text known as samadhi pada (super conscious experience).  Swami Purnatmanandaji will discuss the esoteric meaning and deeper mystical teachings of this scripture. The aim of the course is to understand how these ancient teachings can be practiced and applied in modern life.

Swami Purnatmananda Giri  is a monk in the lineage of Kriya Yoga masters Paramahamsa Hariharananda and Paramahamsa Prajnanananda. Born in India and trained as an industrial engineer, Swamiji came to the United States to pursue higher education, working for a Fortune 500 Company in various roles for 11 years. He was initiated into the sacred path of Kriya Yoga in 1992 and joined the ashram in 2005 to serve his Guru and humanity at large. Ordained as a monk in the Giri order of monasticism, his name, Swami Purnatmananda Giri, means "bliss of complete soul consciousness." He currently resides in Kriya Vedanta Gurukulam, Joliet, IL.

Astral Temples and Dream Time in Ancient Egypt

NormandEllis_F

Ancient Egypt was a magical culture steeped in practical spirituality—what moderns may understand as metaphysics, or the science of spiritual unfoldment.This online class offers an ancient Egyptian perspective on dreams and tapping into the various levels of consciousness beyond ordinary perceptions of reality.

By delving into inner and outer planes of existence, including the Akhet and Duat, Normandi parses out the difference between states of awareness (shadow and light) and what has been erroneously defined as heaven and hell.  In exploring the nine spiritual bodies articulated in her book Dream of Isis, she shows how these astral bodies operate in dreams, altered states, shamanic flight, spirit communication and astral congress.
